I dig for gold

from by a Singer of Songs

lyrics

I would rather smile
Than sigh
Or feel the dark inside
I dream of nails sometimes
Pin me down
Rust like moss on my mind
You could never hide
You’d leap forth
Into the starlight
To think of you sometimes
In polaroids
Tiny treasures in soil

You look at stars
I dig for gold
At the end of each night
We both end up cold

The fields ahead of us
The world to come
The roads to run
You laid down your dress
On the grass
Like a burden from the past
I sat silently
While you slept
You cheek on my knees
The wind blew through the leaves
Your face lit up
With each waving of the tree

You look at stars
I dig for gold
At the end of each night
We both end up cold

Now I would rather hide
Than leap forth
Into the spotlights
I would rather die
Than live
Without you by my side

about

a Singer of Songs Barcelona

a Singer of Songs' music has been compared to snowflakes falling in slow motion. To a blanket on a cold night and dogs howling into the night. Somebody called their album the soundtrack to a loser's life. The band thinks that's the biggest compliment they ever got.
But yeah, you probably want some useful information. Well, they live in Barcelona and they sing songs. That's about it.
