Emmylou Harris Lyrics

Gold by Emmylou Harris


[Verse 1:]
Oh, the night is growing colder
And the stars have lost their shine
And I have been forsaken
By everything I thought was mine
For in the darkest hour
When the final story's told

[Chorus:]
No matter how bright I glittered, baby
I could never be gold

[Verse 2:]
You gave up your finest treasure
For the one you saw in me
But how could I know the measure
Of all you needed me to be
Though I came with sweet intentions
More my pockets could not hold

[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
I finally gave up counting
The ways you said I let you down
When I fell into that river of no return
And you watched me drown
Oh I could sparkle like a diamond
Have silver line my soul

[Chorus]

[Verse 4:]
You looked so high and low for heaven
I tried so hard to show the way
But though I flew on wings of angels
My feet were always made of clay
I could come trailing clouds of glory
But you saw nothing to behold

[Chorus][x2]
