"Double Rainbow" is a song written by Katy Perry and Sia Furler for Perry's fourth studio album, PRISM. Perry announced the title of the song in an interview during the ASCAP's I Create Music Exposition in April 2013.

Background and composition

When asked about the track, Perry said that "[Sia Furler] came in from a yoga class and said, 'I want to write a song called "Double Rainbow", so we have a song called "Double Rainbow"'." During a preview event for Prism, Perry revealed to industry insiders that writing and recording this track "allowed her to 'dump' pent-up emotions and gets [sic] things off her chest."

Perry co-wrote "Double Rainbow" with Greg Kurstin and Sia Furler. Kurstin produced the song and handled its guitar, keyboards, and programming. Audio engineering was helmed by Kurstin and Jesse Shatkin at Echo Studio, located in Los Angeles, California, with additional engineering handled by Alex Pasco. The final task of audio mixing was done by Manny Marroquin, who was assisted by Chris Galland and Delbert Bowers, at the Larrabee Sound Studios, located in Universal City, California.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]:
You're a one of a one, a one of a kind,
That you only find once in a lifetime.
Made to fit like a fingerprint,
A code that clicks open a gold mine.
They say one man's trash is another man's treasure,

When I found you it was all pitter-patter.
Secretly, I hit the lottery,
'Cause you're brighter than all of the Northern Lights.
You speak to me, even in my dreams.
Wouldn't let you go for even the highest price.

[Hook]:
They say one man's trash is another girl's treasure,
So if it's up to me I'm gonna keep you forever.

[Chorus]:
'Cause I understand you,
We see eye to eye.
Like a double rainbow in the sky.
And wherever you go, so will I,
'Cause a double rainbow is hard to find.

[Verse 2]:
Was a phenomenon when you came along,
Yeah, our chemistry was more than science.
It was deafening, a lot like lightning, it was striking,
You couldn't deny it.

[Hook]:
They say one man's trash is another man's treasure,
The two of us together make everything glitter.

[Chorus]:
'Cause I understand you,
We see eye to eye.
Like a double rainbow in the sky.
And wherever you go, so will I,
'Cause a double rainbow is hard to find.

[Bridge]:
To the bottom of the sea,
I'd go to find you.
Climb the highest peak,
To be right beside you.
Every step I take,
I'm keeping you in mind.

[Chorus]:
'Cause I understand you,
We see eye to eye.
Like a double rainbow in the sky.
And wherever you go, so will I,
'Cause a double rainbow is hard to find.

[Outro]:
It's hard to find.
Oh, it's hard to find.
Once in a lifetime.
Once in a lifetime.

Notes

  • Even though interviews say Bonnie McKee co-wrote the song, Sia mentioned on her personal Twitter account she had co-written it.
