Andra Day – Gold lyrics
He don't know I call him the teacher
He had hard lessons for the kid
I could offer you true hell he put me under the same spell
He lied and he stressed me out

You love me like a precious gift
And he loved me like a sloppy kiss
You would tell me your heart aches
now I understand the pain
Oh why did I let you drown

Baby, would you believe that I been broken
You say memories again and again
I see the reel now it's real to me
I gave up gold for grains of sand
Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand, hand
Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand, hand

You had no problems with commitment
Like a king is loyal to what's his
You look for a ring to fit
while I played wifey with the kids
Oh the irony makes me sick

He tried to make me look crazy
Nothing new about his kind of scheme
I laugh when I think about his face
when truth nearly spilled out
He looked like me I get that now

But Baby, would you believe that I been broken
You say memories again and again
I see the reel now it's real to me
I gave up gold for grains of sand
Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand, hand
Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand, hand
Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand, hand
Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand, hand

Ah, ah, ah, ah
Baby, would you believe that I been broken
You say memories again and again
I see the reel now it's real to me
I gave up gold for grains of sand
Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand, hand
Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand, hand
Slippin' through my hand, ooh
Slippin' through my hand, hand

(Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand)
(Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand)
(Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand)
(Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand)
