Just Like Gold

This song is by Aztec Camera and appears on the single Just Like Gold (1981).

Over fields and hills,
Waits a train for us,
But we're here because,
And I'm counting,
Up to 9 again,
Up to 9 again,
That's how long it lasts.

Is this still a gift?
Something we can use,
Oh, I'm sorry I'm late,
But I started to wait,
And discovered I'd lost my shoes,
The gold in my excuse,
Is only there for you.

I show you jewels you've seen a thousand times,
And then I tell you that those jewels were never mine,
So when you're asking me to,
Define that feeling for you,
What can I say?
It's there until it goes away and,
If they had voices then they'd whisper threats,
When they come, they come in silhouettes.

Take my arms and tell me:
"Don't forget",
I had a story, oh I hope I hadn't told it yet, I
If I could take you there again, someday,
You'd only say we've been there, anyway.

You'd find your diamonds,
But they fade away to ask,
You're flying backwards,
Now you lose more every time you crash and...

Now I'm aware of where it's safe to meet
I find my shoes and then I find my feet,
So when you're asking me to,
Define that feeling for you,
That's what I'll say,
It's only there until that gold just slips away.
