​Silver And Gold

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album On A Wing And A Prayer (1981) and on the album Early (2003).

When I see you cry, well, you know
That I just feel such desperation
And it seems that I'll never understand
This crazy situation
And it looks like lovers must be sad
Just to make some complication

'Cause you can't hold on
To the silver and gold
'Cause the silver won't have you
And the gold's been sold

When I close my eyes on the long hard day
And I drift into my dreaming
Well, it's the brightest lights that I want to hold
All the rest have no real meaning
And it looks like good friends have to part
If they stay it's too revealing

'Cause you can't hold on
To the silver and gold
'Cause the silver won't have you
And the gold's been sold

That's the way it seems when there's nothing
In this world of which we're certain
And you can see we're lost and it's obvious
We're in need of some direction
But all the shadows closing round
Well, they're just some old reflection

'Cause you can't hold on
To the silver and gold
'Cause the silver won't have you
And the gold's been sold
