about

A song about struggle and life on the other side of the rainbow
Recorded at home on New Years Eve 2014.

lyrics

Lyrics:

You know the story, yet the ending is surprising 
I had it all, but there’s a storm on the horizon 

It all went from black and white to color way too soon
Out came the rainbow, tried to ruin my view
Take me away

oh, I’m feeling ruby red 
It's a struggle everyday, hanging by a thread
I can’t ever run away from my problems
Come on and take me away

The road is yellow, like the color of my soul
Lost in the forest, feeling out of control

I got some friends they tried to keep me from the evil
But I lost the plot, and started working on a sequel
Take me away

oh, I’m feeling ruby red
It's a struggle everyday, hanging by a thread
I can’t ever run away from my problems
Come on and take me...

I got a good heart, need to find a better head
I’m on the dark side of the moon, I'm ruby red
Take me away

oh, I’m feeling ruby red
It's a struggle everyday, hanging by a thread
I can’t ever run away from my problems
I guess I'm never far away from the bottom
Ruby red
