Manchester Orchestra – The Gold lyrics

[Verse 1]
Couldn't really love you any more
You've become my ceiling
I don't think I love you anymore
That gold mine changed you
You don't have to hold me anymore
Our cave's collapsing
I don't wanna be me anymore
My old man told me

[Pre-Chorus 1]
"You don't open your eyes for a while
You just breathe that moment down."
Forty miles out of East Illinois
From my old man's heart attack

[Chorus 1]
I believed you were crazy
You believed you loved me

[Verse 2]
I don't wanna bark here anymore
Black hills, the colly
Wasn't really dangerous for us
We just catch you coughing
What the hell are we gonna do?
A black mile to the surface
I don't wanna be here anymore
It all tastes like poison

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Can't open your eyes for a while
You just breathe that moment down
Forty hours out of Homestake
And I'm trying to translate you again

[Chorus 2]
I believed you were crazy
You believed you loved me
You and me, we're a daydrink
So lose your faith in me

[Bridge]
Can't open your eyes for a while
You just beat that moment down
You can't open your eyes for a while
You just breathe

[Chorus 2]
I believed you were crazy
You believed you loved me
You and me, we're a daydrink
So lose your faith in me
Lose your faith in me
Oh, lose your faith in me
