Liner Notes: 

This song was written by my partner Nicole and I (she isn't on 50/90 yet, I'm trying to get her to sign up). She created most of the lyrics and I added instrumental.

I needed a happy, non-angsty song to perform for a pride event and she started coming up with lyrics and told me to run with it. I really love how it turned out!

Lyrics: 

To make a rainbow - Sebastian and Nicole
G F Dm G
G F
Do you know our flag?
Dm G
Well it used to be bigger
F
The first one was created
Dm G
by a man named Gilbert Baker
F
It had eight stripes
Dm G
All with a meaning

F
Hot pink for sex (woo!)
Dm
Red for life, healing orange
G
The yellow of sunlight
Dm C
and green for na-ture
G F
magic turquoise, blue harmony
Dm
and violet spirit
G G7
colours to encompass our joy

[Chorus]
C E7
Oh cant you see
F G G7
This is who we're supposed to b-e
C
Loud and proud
E7 F
We let our colors show
G
It takes all of us
F
to make a rainbow
F C E7 G G7
F
We will stand true
Dm G
even if we’re feeling blue!
F
Because all the Rainbow
Dm G
isn't complete without you
F
And if you cant stand tall
Dm G
we wont let you feel so small

[Bridge]
G7 C
Even if you cant see your shine
E7 G
you need to close your eyes
E7 G7 C
We will push through the stor-ms
G
so you can rise
E7 C
and show the world

[Chorus]
E7
We can all see,
F G G7
This is who we're supposed to b-e
C
Loud and proud
E7 F
We let our colors show
G
It takes all of us
F C
to make a rainbow
x 2
G F
It takes all of us, to make a rainbow (x 2)

When you were working this up in the basement and the living room, I kept thinking... Wow, that's a strong chorus. Well done, son.

I never knew the history behind the rainbow flag, so this is educational as well as festive. Love the inclusive message and warm feel of the music.
