Hall of the stone tower in the foothills
Why should we hide from anyone?
Held you in my arms for the first time that day
Felt like God's annointed when you didn't push me away

Gold light shining on
So many things
In the age of kings

Gold light shining on
So many things
In the age of kings

Lean on the concrete walls in shadow
Why should we wait to throw the switch?
Felt your name burn in, like a tattoo into my skin
Rain on the clay tiles all night
Your head nestled beneath my chin

Gold light shining on
So many things
In the age of kings

Gold light shining on
So many things
In the age of kings

In the lost age
Where the jewels hide
And the sword sticks in the waiting stone
Still warm

Small chambers shrinking til they vanish
Wolves in the hallway gaining ground
Reached down to the moment when I should have said something true
Shadows and their sources now
Stealing away with you

Gold light shining on
So many things
In the age of kings

Gold light shining on
So many things
In the age of kings
