Gold Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
(Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand)
(Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand)
(Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand)
(Slippin' through my hand, hand, hand)
