Poetry Friday: Gold by Fergus O'Farrell of Interference

March 23rd, 2012 (07:25 am)
optimistic

Current Mood: optimistic
Current Song: Gold from the Once motion picture soundtrack

And I love her so
I wouldn't trade her for gold
I'm walking on moonbeams
I was born with a silver spoon

And I'm gonna be free
I'm gonna be free
I'm walking on moonbeams
And staring out to sea

And if a door close
Then a road for home start building
And tear your curtains down
For sunlight is like gold

And you better be you
And do what you can do
When you're walking on moonbeams
Staring out to sea

'Cause if your skin was soil
How long do you think before they start digging?
And if your life was gold
How long would you think you'd stay livin'?
Hey

And I love her so
I wouldn't trade her for gold

- Gold by Fergus O'Farrell of Interference

This song can be heard in the film ONCE and the new stage adaptation of ONCE, which is now on Broadway. Listen to the version from the film - then get the original Broadway cast album, which has two beautiful versions, one fully orchestrated, one a capella.
