Stay Gold

Album: Stay Gold (2014)
  • The sun shone high those few summer days
    Left us in a soft, wide-eyed haze
    It shone like gold
    It shone like gold

    But just as the moon, it shines straight
    So dawn goes down today
    No gold can stay
    No gold can stay

    What if our hard work ends in despair?
    What if the road won't take me there?
    Oh, I wish, for once, we could stay gold

    What if to love and be loved's not enough?
    What if I fall and can't bear to get up?
    Oh, I wish, for once, we could stay gold
    We could stay gold, oh, gold

    We're on our way through rugged land
    Top of that mountain we wanted to stand
    With hearts of gold
    With hearts of gold

    But there is only forward, no other way
    Tomorrow is your hope at the end of the day
    And gold turns gray
    And gold turns gray

    What if our hard work ends in despair?
    What if the road won't take me there?
    Oh, I wish, for once, we could stay gold

    What if to love and be loved's not enough?
    What if I fall and can't bear to get up?
    Oh, I wish, for once, we could stay gold
    We could stay gold, oh

    All of my dreams, they fall and form a bridge
    Of memories where I can get back
    All of my dreams, they fall and form a bridge
    Of memories where I can get back to you

    What if our hard work ends in despair?
    What if the road won't take me there?
    Oh, I wish, for once, we could stay gold

    What if to love and be loved's not enough?
    What if I fall and can't bear to get up?
    Oh, I wish, for once, we could stay gold
    We could stay gold, oh, gold

    Could stay gold, gold
    Stay gold, oh, gold Writer/s: Johanna Kajsa Soederberg, Klara Maria Soederberg
