It’s cold outside. It’s colder than it’s been in years
Perhaps because he knows this is the last
He can’t remember her face or the way she made him laugh
He can’t recall the colour of her hair
The end is not a parade of memories
No flags with faces waving in the wind
There are no balloons floating into the atmosphere
All he wants stays buried in the dirt

Gold miner you’ll never find her
She’s been gone since the day you set sail
She standing there waving, silently praying
It would turn out just like you said
But it never did

He stays in bed a little longer than he ever did
For once he doesn’t hurry to the pit
It’s a while before he has his coat in hand
Takes a look around and shuts the door
It’s a hard man that can last to the bitter end
It takes courage to forget the things he loves
He spent his youth digging through the muck and dirt
He knows it’s too late for regrets


from When You Were King, released July 15, 2013
