Standing at a crossroad in the rain
I been here before, I can't complain
Must be something in the book of revelation
Keeps on messing with my destination

That big old city nearly did me in
I got my doubts if I'll go there again
Turning back could turn into a heartbreak
Tonight I just need some shelter from a heartache

[Chorus]
Wishing for a rainbow
Listen to the wind blow
Wondering how can love grow
Wishing for a rainbow

I wonder if she found her way to Denver
If she still needs the love I said I'd send her
Like roses untended may grow withered
Love letters in my heart go undelivered

[Chorus]

Shattered glass all scattered â??cross the floor
Some fellow left his suitcase by the door
I'd like to think I left it all behind me
And know for sure the past will never find me
There are some who sanctify revenge
Time and life will leave them on the fringe
And some until the end will carry grudges
Time and life and death will be their judges

[Chorus]
