Tears of Gold

One day we are young
And by the next one we are old
Despite the years
And tears of gold precede the rapture

Time has it's way
With everyone in it's path
She combs her hair
And tears of gold fall on the gray

Tears of gold
Tears of golden restraint
As evidence of the pain
That we feel inside

Mary Anne, settle down
Let's bring the band around how 'bout
And we'll sing you to heaven and back

Laura Lee sets the food out
On the table top for us
And when she asks Mary Anne to say Grace

Mary Anne settles down
Wiping tears of gold from her face

Where we are strong
By tomorrow we will grow weak and disappear
Our families will gather 'round to remember

Where we are flesh and blood
By the next one we are dust under the wheels
Without a love we're only ash in urns of silver

Tears of gold
Tears of golden restraint
As evidence of the pain
That she feels

Tears of gold
Tears of gold promise the rapture
And heal the soul

Replacing tears of gold
With music and laughter
Tears of gold
Tears of gold
