Lyrics: Smiles and rainbows never made a garden grow.
Flowers need rain and light.
Lace and dreams don't sew a shirt, don't you know?
And only birds have flight.
You cannot live on love alone, so they say.
You cannot dine on dreams,
Nor take i-deals for every meal, like bread all day;
Nor songs like chocolate creams.
But when all I have to give to you
Is songs and dreams and flight,
When it's all I have to give to you,
I hope...
It's all right.
