  1. Band Of Gold

From The Recordings Html

Lyrics

We kissed on that first day in May
As sunlight cut through the rain
It was like a metaphor
Of everything in store
For you and me
We took that gamble
On a band of gold
Thinking there’s nothing else we’d rather hold
With vows to your mother
And advice from my dad
Thinking this is the best thing we ever had
It was like we set fire to fear
As we burned so very bright
From a deep spark of life
In you and me
Then the next seven!
Breaks the metaphor for happy endings
But you could say that every boardwalk summer love is just pretending that
Winter never comes
Like it’s done
For you and me
But we took that gamble
On a band of gold
Thinking there’s no one else we’d rather hold
With a vow to your mother
And advice from my dad
Thinking this is best we could ever have
Now the years we’re spending single
From the spark we once had kindled
Even now we intermingle
With the ghost of it all
With the ghost of it all
We meet every now and then
Watching movies like dear old friends
It’s another metaphor
Of sunlight through the pouring rain…
We took that gamble
On a band of gold
And found out how much love our hearts could hold
With a vow to your mother
And advice from my dad
Still seems to be the best thing that we could have ever had
A band of gold
For as long as you can hold
A band of gold
It’s never easy
But thank you for a life
With a little shine from a band of gold
We took a chance
Living life with a little shine from a band of gold
We took a chance…
We didn't find a way to stay
Couldn’t make it all the way
It’s alright
It’s still a happy ending
Cuz I was broken at the start
You came along and held my heart
You saved me
When you took the gamble
When you said you loved me…

Thanks for the love and
Thanks for the band of gold
For as long as we can hold on
