Threads of Gold

 

 

Threads of darkness

   threads of gold

Bind our hearts

   and connect our souls

Weave the tapestry of our days

The songs we sing

   and the games we play

 

Are we prisoners of a love gone crazy

The night is cold and the truth is hazy

Do we care too much

   are we still friends

Will we ever know

   a moments peace again

 

Threads of silk

   threads of steel

Bind our thoughts

   and how we feel

Weave the blanket ‘neath which we sleep

A desperate promise

   we long to keep

 

Are we prisoners of a love gone crazy

The night is cold and the truth is hazy

Do we hurt too much

   are we still friends

Will we ever know

   a moments peace again

 

Threads of fear

   threads of hope

The ties that bind

   a knotted rope

A spider’s web….a curtain lace

I could never find someone

   to take your place

 

Are we prisoners of a love gone crazy

The night is cold and the truth is hazy

Do we care too much

   are we still friends

Will we ever know

   a moments peace again

 

Threads of darkness

   threads of gold

Bind our hearts

   and connect our souls

ooooh….oooh
