emmylou harris – gold lyrics

gold

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,
no matter how bright i glittered, baby,
i could never be gold.

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.
no matter how bright i glittered, baby,
i could never be gold.

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.
but no matter how i glittered, baby,
i could never be gold.

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.
no matter how bright i glittered, baby
i could never be gold.

no matter how bright i glittered, baby,
i could never be gold.
