Ribbon Road lyrics


Broken Gold

Seasons meet, I overflow
You keep the depth in me
Reasons weep, but are overthrown
'Cos you believe in me

Fighting over times gone by
Then fighting on for more
May lightning strike just one more time
Then strike me to the floor

Every mystery is crowned to make a queen
And every lily was a dream
Every final shout, another knife in me
A broken heart I didn't really mean

The fields of youth I feel in you
You feel the truth in me
The silver moon has moved away
The moon was cruel to me

The gold that grows in bridal sheen
The gold that grows apart
They spat and spurned that bridal turn
Enfolded in my heart

Every mystery is crowned to make a queen
And every lily was a dream
Every final shout another knife in me
A broken heart I didn't really mean

So rock the boat, go gently now
And whisper the sweet lullaby
Tell them how you're empty now
The reason why I cry

Tell them how you're empty now
The reason why I cry
