Seize upon that moment long ago
One breath away and there you will be
So young and carefree
Again you will see
That place in time...so gold

Steal away into that way back when
You thought that all would last forever
But like the weather
Nothing can ever...and be in time
Stay gold

But can it be
When we can see
So vividly
A memory
And yes you say
So must the day
Too, fade away
And leave a ray of sun
So gold

Life is but a twinkling of an eye
Yet filled with sorrow and compassion
Though not imagined
All things that happen
Will age too old
Though gold

    this song is based on the poem written by robert frost "Nothing Gold Can Stay" the true meaning of both the song and the poem is youth and how quickly it ends and that when u are young u r innocent and carefrre and once u r older u realize how quickly its gone and then u know better and therefore u r not innocent anymore.
