Silver And Gold

When I see you cry well you know that I just feel such desperation
And it seems that I'll never understand this crazy situation
And it seems that lovers must be sad just to make some complication

And you can't hold on to the silver and gold
'Cause the silver won't have you and the gold's been sold

When I close my eyes on the long hard day and I drift into my dreaming
It's the brightest lights that I want to hold all the rest have no real meaning
And it seems that good friends have to part, if they stay is too revealing


And that's the way it seems when there's nothing in this world of which we're certain
You can see we're lost and it's obvious we're in need of some direction
Oh and all the shadows closing in are just some old reflection
