Stay Gold

First Aid Kit

Sun shone high those few summer days
Left us in a soft, wide-eyed haze
It shone like gold, it shone like gold
But just as the moon, it shall stray
So dawn goes down to day
No gold can stay, no gold can stay

What if our hard work ends in despair?
What if the road won't take me there?
Oh, I wish for once we could stay gold
What if to love and be loved's not enough?
What if I fall and can't bear to get up?
Oh, I wish for once we could stay gold
Could stay gold

On our way through rugged land
Top of that mountain we wanted to stand
With hearts of gold, with hearts of gold
But there is only forward, no other way
Tomorrow is your hope at the end of the day
And gold turns grey and gold turn grey

What if our hard work ends in despair?
What if the road won't take me there?
Oh, I wish for once we could stay gold
What if to love and be loved's not enough?
What if I fall and can't bear to get up?
Oh, I wish for once we could stay gold
Could stay gold

All of my dreams they fall and form a bridge
Of memories where I can't get back
All of my dreams they fall and form a bridge
Of memories where I can't get back to you, to you

What if our hard work ends in despair?
What if the road won't take me there?
Oh, I wish for once we could stay gold
What if to love and be loved's not enough?
What if I fall and can't bear to get up?
Oh, I wish for once we could stay gold
Could stay gold
Could stay gold

Stay gold
