  • Love is not made of gold
    No matter what you've been told
    It's nothing but a lie
    It'll begin to rust
    Tarnish and turn to dust
    Where once it used to shine

    Cause it's only an illusion
    A cruel trick of the light
    Blinding your sight
    And that warm sweet delusion
    Will soon enough turn cold
    Crumble and corrode
    Love is not made of gold

    Love is not built to last
    It shatters just like glass
    Time and time again
    No more precious than jewels
    Just a game that's played by fools
    That always ends in pain

    Yes it's only an illusion
    A cruel trick of the light
    Blinding your sight
    And that warm sweet delusion
    Will soon enough turn cold
    Crumble and corrode
    Love is not made of gold

    It'll turn a beggar into a believer
    Build a shrine
    And fall to his knees
    Cause it all glitters until
    It deceives you
    Curse the day
    That he finally sees

    Well it's only an illusion
    A cruel trick of the light
    Blinding your sight
    And that warm sweet delusion
    Will soon enough turn cold
    Crumble and corrode
