Song Lyrics

Oh, the night is growing colder
And the stars have lost their shine
And I have been forsaken
By everything I thought was mine
For in the darkest hour
When the final story’s told
No matter how bright I glittered, baby
I could never be gold

I believe your finest treasure
Would be the one you found in me
But how could I know the measure
Of all you needed me to be
Though I came with sweet intentions
More my pockets could not hold
No matter how bright I glittered, baby
I could never be gold

I finally gave up counting
The ways you said I let you down
When I fell into the river of no return
You watched me drown
Oh, I could sparkle like a diamond
Have silver line my soul
But no matter how hard I glittered, baby
I could never be gold

You looked so high and low for heaven
I tried so hard to show the way
But though I flew on wings of angels
My feet were always made of clay
I could come trailing clouds of glory
But you saw nothing to behold
No matter how bright I glittered, baby
I could never be gold
