Lyrics

Shooting down my rainbows

Written By: Benita Walsh


I tried so hard to please you
Did I never get it right?
always ended how it started
but I didn't want to fight
If you only could have listened
and I'd told you how I felt
but you never stood beside me
its the way the cards were dealt

just keep shooting down my rainbows (Chorus)
you chase away my dreams
it isn't how you'd planned it
that's the way it seems
shooting down my rainbows
playing with my heart
its never how you want it
and you're tearing me apart

guess that I could never compare
to the image in your head
and maybe if you could have chosen
would it be someone else instead?
you know life doesn't come with plans
and it has no guarantees
but I wanted us to be close
I really did my best to please

you never played on my side
but I'm not the enemy
you could have put your arms around me
thats the way that love should be
you know things were never easy
but I really wasn't bad
and maybe if you'd seen more clearly
then you'd know I felt so sad

Shooting down my rainbows
you chased away my dreams
It wasn't how you planned it
thats the way it seems
shooting down my rainbows
playing with my heart
tried so hard to please you
but you tore my hopes apart

Hidden from you

Written By: Benita Walsh


Get up in the morning and kiss her hello
quick cup of coffee then its time to go
your women likes to do her own thing
how well d'you know her or what's hidden within

Your women is telling lies
can't you see through her disguise
she has so many things to hide
only lets you see one side
keeps the rest hidden, hidden from view
keeps the rest hidden, hidden from you (Chorus)

goes in the bathroom and makes up her face
what's in her head is a real disgrace
she gets her kicks but they're not with you
anothers waiting and his loving is new

your women is telling lies
her secret life would be a surprise
she has so many things to hide
only lets you see one side
keeps the rest hidden, hidden from view
keeps the rest hidden, hidden from you

she gets home later and takes a shower
looks at her watch you'll be home in an hour
thinks of her day with a smile on her face
what's in her head is a real disgrace

how well d'you really know her
have you met her other persona..... (bridge)
and if you really got under that skin
could you really handle the women within?

cooking the dinner in a world of her own
mind leaping forward to next time she's alone
guilt begins to surface as she sees your face
cause what's in her head is a real disgrace

your women is telling lies
her secret life would be a surprise
has so many things to hide
only lets you see one side
keeps the rest hidden, hidden from view
keeps the rest hidden, hidden from you
