Treasures

Album: You Can't Teach an Old Dog New Tricks (2011)
  • When I walk down your street
    Through your barred windows you look at me
    And you wonder, have I come to ask
    For one of your precious things that do not last

    All your treasures
    All your treasures

    You think you know me but you don't know
    That there's more to this picture than that shows
    And you fear that I come to steal
    Your security that ain't real

    All your treasures
    All your treasures

    I will leave now and you won't cry
    With relief now you'll just sigh
    You'll remember come one day
    And you'll walk out your door
    'Cause you can't stay

    While all your treasures
    All your treasures slip away

    All your treasures
    All your treasures Writer/s: STEVE GENE WOLD
