Don Williams — Only Water (Shining In The Air) lyrics

Not that long ago I was on the run
People telling me I should be someone
And the things I’d learnt were forgotten in my haste
Till I reached the end of the rainbow I had chased

It was only water shining in thin air
I put out my hand and there was nothing there
After all the promise, after all the prayer
It was only water shining in the air

Now I’ve got a wife and she sees my through
And I’ve got a friend I can talk straight to
And I’ve got some dreams just a bit more down to earth
And I don’t forget what a rainbows really worth

Cause it’s only water shining in the air
I put out my hand and there was nothing there
After all the promise, after all the prayer
It was only water shining in the air

If you want fame and fortune, then you just be my guest
If you want to pay those dues, I wish you all the best

But it’s only water shining in the air
I put out my hand and there was nothing there
After all the promise, after all the care
It was only water shining in the air
It was only water shining in the air
