Al Jarreau - Rainbow In Your Eyes Lyrics

Well, love's got a hold on me, won't let go;
'cause it's the real thing ba-by,
I just want you to know
That I love you all the way,
More and more each day.

I love to hear you say, 'Well, loves got a hold of me too,
I know it's true; I get that funny feeling just from being close to you.
When I listen to your heart-beat
Not another sound so sweet,
Please hold my hand.'

And we climbed the highest mountain
And we sailed the seven seas,
And nobody was with us
At the top of the world in love
And runnin' free.

'Baby, I'm on fire,
And it feels so good
To have this warm desire
Like a woman should who's really got
Someone to make love to.
I'll stay right here forever with you.'

Well, I'll be right here beside you till the end,
And kiss your eyes and cast away your troubles to the wind,
And love you for all my life,
And take you for my wife,
Please hold my hand.

And we climbed the highest mountain
And we sailed the seven seas,
And nobody was with us
At the top of the world in love
And runnin' free.

I can see the love light shinin'
Like a rainbow in your eyes.
Listen to your heartbeat.
Ain't nobody here with us,
Listen to your heartbeat,
Ain't nobody here with us.
Listen to your heartbeat,
Ain't nobody here with us.

    I miss this man so much. You can tell from the first note that this is unmistakably Al. So grateful I had the chance to see him perform.

    Al Jarreau had such a smooth, soulful voice. This song was written by a favorite artist of mine, Leon Russell. He and his wife recorded this song for their debut singing together, on the Wedding Album. Check it out, it's done really well by them too.

  5. V Robinson

    One of my favorite artist! My cousin was a DJ in a major radio market and she met Al Jarreau and during the interview, she told him that I introduced her to his music back in the late 70"s when I was in college and she was in middle school! She told him how much I loved his music. He sent a message to me through her, and to this day, it makes me smile! RIP Mr. Jarreau! Thank You for sharing your gift!

    Maurice Thrower



    +Maurice Thrower Al Jarreau crossed the street in front of my car one day in Marina Del Rey, which is close to Venice beach but down from Santa Monica beach. A very nice section of town, many musicians, actors, sports stars frequent that area.


    Mine too.
