lyrics

You plate your heart with gold

You can polish all you want to
but the stains will never leave you
you can try to make it show
but we all know
You plate your heart with gold

You can pretend to be the good guy
but those moments seem to fly by
yet a promise you can’t keep
you skip a beat and
plate your heart with gold
you plate your heart with gold

It’s cheaper than the real thing
nobody has to know
the anger and frustration inside
is cold as stone
You think that we are stupid
but no one here is fooled
we all know
you plate your heart with gold
you plate your heart with gold

You’re just going
through the motions
of what you think
is wrong or right
you’ve been lucky all these years
No one cared
you plate your heart with gold
you plate your heart with gold

It’s cheaper than the real thing
nobody has to know
the anger and frustration
We all see seeping through
You think that we are stupid
but no one here is fooled
we all know
you plate your heart with gold
you plate your heart with gold

You’re going through the motions
but no one here is fooled
You’re going through the motions
but everybody knows
you plate your heart with gold

She is a veteran performer with 6 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more
