Rainbow Girls formed in the fall of 2010, right before going on a road trip to Joshua Tree National Forest and Big Bear Mountain. We spent the days practicing/writing our songs, taking breaks to explore the various rock formations and make tea to warm our freezing bodies. Once ready, we set up around a Snowball microphone attached to a mac book pro running GarageBand, and recorded each song on 1 track only. "Sally 'round the Sunshine" was created and recorded on our first night, shortly after pitching the tent; "Waterfall" was recorded in the freezing rain; "Old Fashion Passion" was recorded in a cave; and "Coyote" was written and recorded at sunset, on a rock in the middle of the desert. "Red Hand, Blue Hand" was recorded by a raging fire in a cabin near Big Bear Lake.

Track Name: Red Hand, Blue Hand
Ohhhh why can't I be that plant, my roots dug in the soil?
(Watching the air go high)
Watching the air go high, taking life as it flows by...
Ooo boy I told you twice, that shit is more than a vice
And if you wanna live long and you wanna be strong
you got to look up to the sky
And if you wanna drink liquor, you better think quicker,
you'll be running out of time.

I thought I'd catch you red handed,
instead I caught them blue.

I've been waiting for the winter,
but the storm has yet to rapture me.
I didn't think your arms would be enough
to keep the rain at bay,
And I'm surprised how dry that I have stayed.

I thought I'd catch you red handed,
instead I caught them blue.
In the time it takes to love a man,
your time on Earth was through.

Oh the rain never stops when the walls are made of foil
(Try to tear me down)
Try to tear me down, but my feet are roots buried in the ground.
Not trying to change it (Not trying to change it)
Just trying to re, Just trying to rearrange it!

Woah woah woah woah woah woah wo-ah-ohh

Trouble day for a ride, you let me off before I was through
Drop all the hearsay cause here I'm saying Imma stick with you
Stick with you (stick with you)
See you through (see you though)
Stick with yoouuuu, see you though

I thought I'd catch you red handed,
instead I caught them blue.
In the time it takes to love a man,
your time on Earth was through.

*instrumental*

I thought I'd catch you red handed,
instead I caught them blue.
In the time it takes to love a man,
your time on Earth was through.

Sometimes I'm sitting in this body,
wondering if it's really me livin' this life
of confusion and fun.
Fun is fun if you know what you're doing
with your life, oh oh, yes it is.

Tell me should I walk, should I run, should I dance
in the rain or the sun.

Tell me should I walk, should I run, should I dance
in the rain or the sun...
Should I walk, should I run, should I dance
in the rain or the sun...
Should I walk, should I run, should I dance
in the rain or the sun...
Should I walk, should I run, should I dance
in the rain or the sun...
Should I walk, should I run, should I dance
in the rain or the suuun...

I am gonna walk, I will run, I will dance
in the rain...bow
Track Name: Sally Round the Sunshine
Sally over the water
Sally over the sea
Sally catch a black bird
Can't catch me

Sally 'round the sunshine
Sally 'round the moon
Sally 'round my sister(s)
Every afternoon
Track Name: Waterfall
Waterfall, my waterfall, waterfall hangin' on the wall

Bubbly blue I want to swim in you
Bubbly blue said "I'm sorry, but I can't feel you"

Go to work, I have to go to work
Go to work, man I feel like a jerk

Oh this city is way too much for me
(I wanna go to the water, I wanna go to the water)
How can we even begin to feel free... here?
(I wanna go to the water, Come with me to the water)

Said I don't know, I don't know which way to go
Said I don't know, I don't know...

And as I burn my fingers on a hot plate
serving it to a big lady in a chair,
look in the mirror and rat up my hair

Oh this city is way too much for me
(I wanna go to the water, I wanna go to the water)
How can we even begin to feel free... here?
(I wanna go to the water, Come with me to the water)

Said I don't know, I don't know which way to go
Said I don't know, I don't know which way to go

Quit today, I'm gonna quit today, quit today
boss your money can never pay

Pay for my waterfall, my waterfall
my waterfall you're right in my eyes now
And the wind on my skin, it feels so nice

Waterfall, my waterfall, waterfall
boss your money can never pay

Pay for my waterfall, my waterfall
my waterfall you're right in my eyes now
And the wind on my skin, it feels so nice

~round x 2~

Waterfall, my waterfall, waterfall
hangin' ...
