09. Golden

Nothing Is Sound
by Switchfoot



 

(Like freedom in spring)
Shes alone tonight with a bitter cup and
Shes undone tonight, shes all used up
Shes been staring down the demons whove been screaming
Shes just another so and so,
Another so and so

You are golden, you are golden child
You are golden, dont let go, dont let go tonight

Theres a fear that burns like trash inside
And your shame the curse that burns your eyes
Youve been hiding in the bedroom hoping this isnt
How the story has to go
Its not the way it goes, its your book now

You are golden, you are golden child
You are golden, dont let go, dont let go tonight

Youre a lonely soul in a land of broken hearts
Your far from home is a perfect place to start
So this final verse, is a contradiction, and the more we learn, the less we know.
We've been talkin' about a feeling,
We both know inside but couldn't find the words,
I couldn't write this verse, I've seldom been so sure,
About anything before

Golden,
You are golden, child

You are golden,
Don't let go
Dint let go tonight

This world is a dead man down
Every breath is a fading crown we wear like some debilitated king
The earth spins and the moon goes round
The green comes from the frozen ground
And everything will be made new again like freedom in spring
(Like freedom in spring)

Behind the Song:
We are lonely souls in the land of broken hearts, far from home but this is where the story begins. And yes, you are the protagonist, you are the hero and the villain, the prince and the pauper and the clown all in one. So where do things head from here? well, that's your call... I remember drew laying down his line over top of the verses, this mellow, ethereal roof over top of the song. Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
