When Hearts Were Gold

A Small Victory

We were never ones

To give it all up and just let go

And no matter what

I can't help but think

Of when our hearts were gold.

I remember that new morning

When the sun never came up.

I remember that look in your eyes,

Remember that look in my eyes.

That's when you thought you lost it all.

I've been doing some thinking,

I'm sick of hearing my favorite songs

Play on your stero.

Well every rock

Seemed to fall into place

And just where we wanted them to.

Those steps were as rusty

As our perception of days ahead.

Sometimes we can't stop

The wind from changing

And darling it will be alright

If we give it a good fight

Because some things

Are worth holding on to forever,

Like autumn nights, we can't let this end.
