Rainbow Sleeve

Rainbow Sleeve
(Tom Waits)

You used to dream yourself
To sleep each night
To places that you’ve never seen
On wings made of wishes
That you whisper to yourself
Back when every night
The moon and you
Would sneak away to places
Where you knew
You’d never have the blues

Now whiskey gives you wings to carry
Each one of your dreams
Though the moon does not belong to you
I believe old dreams
Will look like young dreams
If you try hard to pretend
And a heart that has been broken
Will be stronger when it mends

Don’t let the blues stop your singing
You only got a broken wing
You can hang on to my rainbow
Hang on to my rainbow
Hang on to my rainbow sleeve
