Lyric "Gold Dust"

Sights and sounds
Pull me back down
Another year
I was here
I was here

Whipping past
The reflecting pool
Me you
Skipping school

And we make it up
As we go along
We make it up we
Go along

You said
You raced from Langley
Pulling me underneath
A cherry blossom
Canopy

Do I have
Of course I have
Beneath my raincoat
I have your photographs

And the sun on your face
I'm freezing that frame

And somewhere Alfie cries
And says, "Enjoy his every smile
You can see in the dark
Through the eyes of Laura Mars"

How did it go so fast
You'll say as we are looking back
And then we'll understand
We held gold dust in our hands

Sights and sounds
Pull me back down
Another year
I was here
I was here

Gaslights
Glow in the street
(Flickering past)
Twilight held us in her palm
As we walked along

And we make it up as we go along
We make it up as we go along

Letting names hang in the air
What color hair
(Auburn crimson)
Autumn knowingly
Stared

And the day that
She came
I'm freezing that frame
I'm freezing that frame

And somewhere Alfie smiles
And says, "Enjoy her every cry
You can see in the dark
Through the eyes of Laura Mars"

How did it go so fast
You'll say as we are looking back
And then we'll understand
We held gold dust in our hands
In our hands
