What Color Are You

Album: To All Purple Tree Trunks

Lyrics

v1) We are a rainbow people chasing a rainbow dream Across the dark, starry sky of our own time And each of us is a color though we may not know what it is We each have a place in the rainbow where we can shine

CH: What color are you, what color are you Where in the rainbow do you shine, red yellow or blue Somewhere just around the bend - it isn’t far, my friend Somewhere this side of the rainbow’s end There’s a place for you to shine, too

v2) “Whatcha gonna be when you grow up?” You’ve heard it many times before Some of us know but for others it’s a mystery Just where you fit in the rainbow doesn’t come printed on your hand It’s a process of change, pain and joy and discovery (learnin’ to see ... )

CHORUS

Are you a blue sky gazer or a yellow beam of sweet sunshine An earth friend with a tender conscience of green Are you red with the world’s books with a passion to write some more Are you orange or a raging purple Or a combination that’s never been seen before?

v3) We are a rainbow people chasing a rainbow dream We need your color to make our picture clear To make the world a little more beautiful Is the task of your lifetime And on the way you may find the reason you are here

CHORUS

Yes, somewhere this side of the rainbow’s end There’s a place for you to shine, too!
