Golden Embers 

Just like an old friend 

Kinder than expected 

That Cadillac came and gave our girl a ride 

Loss has no end 

It binds to our connection 

And we don’t speak of it, we don’t even try 


If you could help me to share the trouble 

that you’ve got burning in you, then you can help me 

And in our time together 

Her memory will ever shine like golden embers in the night 


I miss the old hymns 

when she used to sing 

The sparrows spread their mortal wings 

Now they’ve all lighted 

with the silence of strings 

Like notes on the pages, she breathed life into all things 


Chorus

 

Just like an old friend 

Reach out to me 

Bathe me in the light of understanding 


And try to help me to share the trouble
that you’ve got burning in you, then you can help me 

And in our time together 

Her memory will ever shine like golden embers in the night
