Dan Fogelberg – The Power Of Gold lyrics

The story is told of the
Power of gold
And it's lure on the
It glitters and shines
It badgers and blinds
And constantly needs protecting.
Balance the cost of the soul
You lost
With the dreams you lightly
Are you under
The power of gold?
The letters and calls
Got you climbing the walls
And everyone wants a favor
They beg to remind you
Of times left behind you
But you know the past is a
The face you're wearing
Is different now
And the days run hot and cold
Are you under
The power of gold?
You're a creature of habit
Run like a rabbit
Scared of a fear you can't name
You own paranoia
Is looming before you
But nobody thinks that
It's a game.
Balance the cost of the soul
You lost
With the dreams you lightly
Then tell me
That you're free
Of the power of gold.
The women are lovely
The wine is superb
But there's something
About the song
That disturbs you...
