Michael Franks - String Of Pearls lyrics

All our lives
Searching for the secret of joy
Each time we think we find the way
Confusion leads us astray

Love arrives
At the very moment we cry
For someone to be our heart's home
Instead of blue monochrome

Suddenly, the Rainbow
Hits us from a different angle
Suddenly, our hearts know
Love's the thread on which we dangle
Shining like a string of pearls

All our hearts held together
Like a string of pearls

In the sky
We see a profusion of stars
We marvel hoe brightly they burn
With what precision they turn

We wonder why
Each blossom turns toward the sun
Deprived of light we would grow weak
Love is the answer we seek
