You are golden child

Golden (by Switchfoot)

(Like freedom in spring)
She's alone tonight with a bitter cup and
She's undone tonight, she's all used up
She's been staring down the demons who've been screaming she's
just another so and so,
another so and so
You are golden, you are golden child
You are golden, don't let go, don't let go tonight
There's a fear that burns like trash inside
And your shame the curse that burns your eyes
You've been hiding in the bedroom hoping this isn't
how the story has to go
It's not the way it goes, it's your book now
You're a lonely soul in a land of broken hearts
Your far from home is a perfect place to start
So this final verse is a contradiction and the more we learn,
the less we know
We've been talking about a feeling, we both know inside
but couldn't find the words
I couldn't write this verse. I've seldom been so sure
about anything before
This world is a dead man down
Every breath is a fading crown we wear like some debilitated king
The earth spins and moon goes round
The green comes from the frozen ground
And everything will be made new again like freedom in spring
(Like freedom in spring)
