Somewhere, Over the Rainbow

This morning on my way to work, this song came on my iPod--the Ray Charles/Johnny Mathis version. Like everyone else, I have heard this song hundreds of times. But today it seemed like a different song or as if it was the first time I had ever really heard it. Today I felt the emotion in Johnny's voice as he seemed to be longing for the things he was singing of in this 'oh too familiar' song...and it brought me to tears.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,

There's a land that I heard of

Once in a lullaby.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true

The song played in my head all day at work...especially as I walked outside and looked out across the ocean..."to the other side."
Is there somewhere where skies are blue and the dreams that you dare to dream come true?
I want to go there. I really do.
