Over The Rainbow
Melody Gardot Lyrics


Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I heard of, once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow, why then, oh, why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh, why can't I?

(Chello intro)

umm walking up the rainbow go-o go-o-o
do do em do em em-emdo
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
there's a land I heard of, once in a lu-lla-by
Somewhere over the rainbo-o-ow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream, really do commme true

Someday I'll wish upon a star, and wake up where the clouds are far behind meee
Where troubles melt like lemon drops, away above the chimney tops
That's wheeeeere you'll fi-i-ind mee
Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow, why then-oh-why can't III?

(Stephan Braun's solo)

Someday I'll wish upon a star, and wake up where the clouds are far behind meee
Where troubles melt like lemon drops, away above the chimney tops
That's wherrre you'll fi-ind me-e-e-e
Somewhere over the rainbow, blu-u-uebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow, why then-oh-why can't III?

Beautiful interpretation of a classic. And it is fascinating to see Stephan Braun strum a cello like a guitar!

Having a Melody Gardot moment this morning. I could be stuck in this mood for a long while now.

Unbelievable. I guess I better believe it, though.

A one-of-a-kind miracle of the universe. I love a voice that is distinct from all others.
