Track Name: Sing Your Name
On a hill that overlooks the town
In the still of mourning laid you down
In the days upon your mother's knee
Would she say these words recalled to me?

You go round and round in circles
And you give it all away
But one day if you're lucky boy
Your friends will sing your name

So they came from miles all around
And they gave their hearts up with the sound
And the best of tales were told in kind
That you left with those who stay behind

You go round and round in circles
And you give it all away
But one day if you're lucky boy
Your friends will sing your name

So we'll raise our glasses and our voices in the sun
For there will come a reckoning for each and everyone

So we go into the passing light
And we know the bars won't close tonight

You go round and round in circles
And you give it all away
But one day if you're lucky boy
Your friends will sing your name
Your friends will sing your name
Your friends will sing your name

Now your time is short and quickly gone
But your life is greater than the sum

We go round and round in circles
And we give it all away
But one day with a heart of joy
Yes I will sing your name
Said one day with a heart of joy
Yes I will sing your name
Track Name: Made Of Gold
Turn all the lights down and strike up the band
Ours was a love neither governed nor planned
Gripped by the feelings we could not control
Your eyes shining blue and your hair made of gold

Gold, gold
Gold, gold
It's made, it's made of gold

Burn down the houses and scatter the herd
Him over me was the place you preferred
Heartbreak confirmed but could not be consoled
A band on your finger, a chain made of gold

Gold, gold
Gold, gold
It's made, it's made of gold
It's made, it's made of gold

Gold, gold
Gold, gold
It's made, it's made of gold
It's made, it's made of gold
It's made, it's made of gold

Turn all the lights down and strike up the band
Feel in the dark for the hold of my hand
Nothing there now but the reasons you told
Why your heart is so heavy, your love's made of gold

Gold, gold
Gold, gold
It's made, it's made of gold
It's made, it's made of gold
Track Name: You Only See
Well all the days and all the nights are going by
Help for that never-ending wander in your eye
I tried to give you everything your heart desired
Why did you throw all of your hopes onto the pyre?

When the morning comes between us
Do you just see what you want to see?
'Cause you know I want to love you
But I just don't have the energy

So there's a burden in a love you could defend
Lo and behold you went and fucked it up again
High time for you to go and shake it out the door
I don't care where you go you can't stay here no more

When the morning comes between us
Do you just see what you want to see?
'Cause you know I want to hate you
But I just don't have the energy

You only see what you want to see
You only see what you want to see
You only see what you want to see

Well can you feel it in the beating of your heart?
Tell me your truth and I will take it all apart
So is it easier to move on down the line?
Hold everything you have, it's yours until it's mine

When the morning comes between us
Do you just see what you want to see
'Cause you know I want to love you
But I just don't have the energy

When the morning comes between us
Do you just see what you want to see
'Cause you know I want to hate you
But I just don't have the energy

You only see what you want to see
You only see what you want to see
You only see what you want to see
