It was a hard five years
living with a soft dull hurt
all the money in the
whole wide world
couldn't make it work
I was a damn fool
I know
smiling like it wouldn't show
it was never gonna go
on its own
I had to walk away

It wasn't too soon
before it got too late
there was a
blue, blue moon
shining like silver plate
it was a loose night
I was scaring all the boys away
you took my hand
walked me home like a man

You have a heart of gold
hidden underneath a pile of snow
and I only want to hold you
and never let you go

The the buzzing of the bees
and the magpies in the trees
they made a lot of noise
threw their sticks and stones and boy they
really wanted us to bleed
it was a hard year
living with those sharp jeers
I don't care
you're still gonna be my man

Let them throw their stones
rip my flesh right
to my bones
they don't understand
You're still gonna be my man

You have a heart of gold
Hidden underneath a pile of snow
and I only want to hold you
and never let you go
