lyrics

What once was gold to me is nothing but concrete
like everything I dreamed.
I've forgotten where I'm from,
lost sight of what's to come.
I lay awake at night hoping to go back home.

I was gold.
I took the world in stride but I...
I was gold.

The green grass grayed by time away holds me to blame.
My own heartbeat is the only thing that's left of me.

And even though my time is fleeting, I think back to those years. Years before I grew away, before I became so lost. I find myself gripping the memories I still have tighter than ever before. But now I've seen what it's become, I've seen the cracked pavement and hopelessness swallow everything I used to love. Everything I thought I knew is breaking when it was gold!

I was gold.
I was.
