Stay Gold

Album: Future This (2011)
  • A time to laugh, a time to cry
    And beat the darkness into light
    We'll write our names across the town
    Up is up and so is down

    Forgive your lovers, but don't forget their names
    And let their spirit remain
    Stay gold, gold
    You shine the light for us to follow, gold
    You shine the light for us to follow, gold
    You shine the light for us to follow

    The stings our fingers just won't go
    Chrome letters, outlines, arrows fall
    The words took off, we watched them fall
    Desire of our mind is now written on the wall

    Forgive your lovers, but don't forget their names
    And let their spirit remain
    Stay gold, gold
    You shine the light for us to follow, gold
    You shine the light for us to follow, gold
    You shine the light for us to follow

    How vast the darkness
    We disappear into the light
    Follow the torch we made
    In the end, we're all made of gold
    And now I know, I will not be saved
    Unless I follow
    And now I know, I will not be saved
    Unless I follow

    Stay gold, gold
    You shine the light for us to follow, gold
    You shine the light for us to follow, gold
    You shine the light for us to follow

    If you lead, I will follow Writer/s: ABRAHAM ORELLANA, LAVARAK MILO NAPOLEON CORDELL, ROBERTSON DAVID FRANCIS FURZE, PAUL RICHARD EPWORTH
