On a hill that overlooks the town In the still of mourning laid you down In the days upon your mother's knee Would she say these words recalled to me? You go round and round in circles And you give it all away But one day if you're lucky boy Your friends will sing your name So they came from miles all around And they gave their hearts up with the sound And the best of tales were told in kind That you left with those who stay behind You go round and round in circles And you give it all away But one day if you're lucky boy Your friends will sing your name So we'll raise our glasses and our voices in the sun For there will come a reckoning for each and everyone So we go into the passing light And we know the bars won't close tonight You go round and round in circles And you give it all away But one day if you're lucky boy Your friends will sing your name Your friends will sing your name Your friends will sing your name Now your time is short and quickly gone But your life is greater than the sum We go round and round in circles And we give it all away But one day with a heart of joy Yes I will sing your name Said one day with a heart of joy Yes I will sing your name

Turn all the lights down and strike up the band Ours was a love neither governed nor planned Gripped by the feelings we could not control Your eyes shining blue and your hair made of gold Gold, gold, gold It's made, it's made of gold Burn down the houses and scatter the herd Him over me was the place you preferred Heartbreak confirmed but could not be consoled A band on your finger, a chain made of gold Gold, gold, gold It's made, it's made of gold It's made, it's made of gold Gold, gold, gold It's made, it's made of gold It's made, it's made of gold It's made, it's made of gold Turn all the lights down and strike up the band Feel in the dark for the hold of my hand Nothing there now but the reasons you told Why your heart is so heavy, your love's made of gold Gold, gold, gold It's made, it's made of gold It's made, it's made of gold It's made, it's made of gold It's made, it's made of gold

Well all the days and all the nights are going by Help for that never-ending wander in your eye I tried to give you everything your heart desired Why did you throw all of your hopes onto the pyre? When the morning comes between us Do you just see what you want to see? 'Cause you know I want to love you But I just don't have the energy So there's a burden in a love you could defend Lo and behold you went and fucked it up again High time for you to go and shake it out the door I don't care where you go you can't stay here no more When the morning comes between us Do you just see what you want to see? 'Cause you know I want to hate you But I just don't have the energy You only see what you want to see You only see what you want to see You only see what you want to see Well can you feel it in the beating of your heart? Tell me your truth and I will take it all apart So is it easier to move on down the line? Hold everything you have, it's yours until it's mine When the morning comes between us Do you just see what you want to see 'Cause you know I want to love you But I just don't have the energy When the morning comes between us Do you just see what you want to see 'Cause you know I want to hate you But I just don't have the energy You only see what you want to see You only see what you want to see You only see what you want to see
