Oh, the night is growing colder, And the stars have lost their shine And I have been forsaken, By everything I thought was mine For in the darkest hour, When the final story's told [Chorus] No matter how bright I glittered, baby, I could never be gold. You gave up your finest treasure, For the one you saw in me But how could I know the measure, Of all you needed me to be Though I came with sweet intentions, More my pockets could not hold [Chorus] I finally gave up counting, The ways you said I let you down When I fell into that river of no return, And you watched me drown Oh I could sparkle like a diamond, Have silver line my soul [Chorus] You looked so high and low for heaven, I tried so hard to show the way But though I flew on wings of angels, My feet were always made of clay I could come trailing clouds of glory, But you saw nothing to behold [Chorus: x2]
