The colors of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying
"I love you”

Louis Armstrong


Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Kermit the Frog


Take my hand, stay Joanne
Heaven's not ready for you
Every part of my aching heart
Needs you more than the angels do

Lady Gaga
