Concrete and Gold

Album: Concrete and Gold (2017)
  • You lost your mind
    I could not go
    What little time we spent
    A penny on the floor

    My desperation
    A spinning top
    Revolving on and on
    A world that never stops

    Is it all mine?
    How could I know?
    We threw the rind away
    Swallowed all the core

    Tried levitation
    You're not alone
    The stars are holding open
    A door we'll never close

    I have an engine made of gold
    Something so beautiful
    The world will never know
    Our roots are stronger than you know
    Up through the concrete we will grow

    Is it all mine?
    I can't let go
    What little time we spent
    A penny on the floor
    My desparation
    Is this a curse?
    'Til death do us part
    For better or for worse

    I have an engine made of gold
    Something so beautiful
    The world will never know

    Our roots are stronger than you know
    Up through the concrete we will grow
    Our roots are stronger than you know
    Up through the concrete we will grow Writer/s: David Eric Grohl, Odie Hawkins, Rami Jaffee, Nate Mendel, Georg Ruthenberg, Chris Shifflet
