Rainbow Sleeves - Tom Waits

    You used to dream yourself away each night
    To places that you'd never been
    On wings made of wishes
    That you whispered to yourself
    Back when every night the moon and you
    Would sweep away to places
    That you knew
    Where you would never get the blues

    Well now, whiskey gives you wings
    To carry
    Each one of your dreams
    And the moon does not belong to you
    But I believe
    That your heart keeps young dreams
    Well, I've been told
    To keep from ever growing old
    And a heart that has been broken
    Will be stronger when it mends

    Don't let the blues stop you singing
    Darling, you've only got a broken wing
    Hey, you just hang on to my rainbow
    Hang on to my rainbow
    Hang on to my rainbow sleeves
