lyrics

Down the river there's a field with grass and stones
I left my darling, when it was overgrown
The grass is long, the hill above is steep
I left my darling, when he was fast asleep
Between the mountain's shadow and the morning sun
Dirt beneath my feet, and the work here is done
Listen to the river, and at night the rain will fall
I left my darling… I did not leave him at all

You hair like spun gold, like spun gold…

I put to you the question of what follows now
Will you walk on in your pattern, or break the spell somehow?
How can you be so fragile, and yet be so strong?
How can I be by your side, and yet still go on?

You hair like spun gold, like spun gold
You hair like spun gold, like spun gold
Your eyes they grow cold, they grow cold
You hair like spun gold, like spun gold

Autumn comes and that's when all the hard work starts
No time in this day now for a broken heart
You don't understand, upon your throne the day is long
This is not the world you live in - this is not your song

You hair like spun gold, like spun gold…

Please stay, please stay
Even as you go
Please stay, please stay
With your hair of spun gold
