I have seen the end of a rainbow in the deepness of your pale brown eyes
& I have seen the edge of a sunset, in the sweetness of your whispering smile

I missed you when they took you downtown
& I missed you when they had you on the pills
When you came back everything seemed brighter
I miss you now and I guess I always will

Chorus
We dreamed of California, we dreamed of the sunlight
we laughed in Carolina, we laughed in the Memphis nights
&I believe that we knew love together, I believe it was strong
I believe that I am broken hearted now that you are gone

I know that when you died and went to heaven, the angels sang the alleluia song
but the silence that you left here behind you is empty like the day without the dawn

Chorus
We dreamed of California, we dreamed of the sunlight
we laughed in Carolina, we laughed in the Memphis nights
&I believe that we knew love together, I believe it was strong
I believe that I am broken hearted now that you are gone

When my soul rests in peace, I see saint peter at the pearly gates
with Jesus, the saints and the singing angels
I wonder when I’ll get to see your face.
