City of Gold

Album: Maximum Overload (2014)
  • Her dream was to shine on the screen
    Felt that was why she was born
    Left all behind without a fear inside
    But sometimes there's no lucky star to help you

    Sun will go down, and she's all alone
    Can't help but feel insecure
    She'll never stop, the way to the top
    Is more than she had bargained for

    Her quest for the glory was real
    But somehow it turned out all wrong
    Heartache was never a part of the dream
    Can't find a reason to keep on trying

    Turn out the lights, 'cause deep in the night
    Just like the thousands before
    Hold up your hand, there's hope at the end
    But be careful what you wish for

    Now the lights are all gone
    You find yourself on your own
    Welcome the night, 'cause not all that glitters is gold
    Now the city has gone
    You find your own way back home
    Keep up the fight, and you'll find your kingdom of gold

    Another night out on the streets
    Finding a way to survive
    Wasting your chances, destroying your dreams
    Counting the tears that you cried

    Hiding the pain that drives you insane
    But still you're craving for more
    So give me your hand, hold on till the end
    And you can have what you wish for

    Now the lights are all gone
    You find yourself on your own
    Welcome the night, 'cause not all that glitters is gold
    Now the city has gone
    You find your own way back home
    Keep up the fight, and you'll find your kingdom of gold

    Now the lights are all gone
    You find yourself on your own
    Welcome the night, 'cause not all that glitters is gold

    Now the lights are all gone
    You find yourself on your own
    Welcome the night, 'cause not all that glitters is gold
    Now the city has gone
    You find your own way back home
    Keep up the fight, and you'll find your kingdom of gold Writer/s: FREDERIC LECLERCQ, HERMAN LI, SAM TOTMAN, VADIM PRUZHANOV
