Golden Embers Lyrics

Mandolin Orange
[Verse 1]
Just like an old friend kinder than expected
That Cadillac came and gave our girl a ride
Loss has no end, it binds to our connection
We don't speak of it, we don't even try

[Chorus]
If you could help me to share the trouble
But you got burned and then you, then you can help me
And in our time together
Her memory will ever
Shine like golden embers in the night

[Verse 2]
I miss the old hymns when she used to sing
The sparrows spread their mortal wings
Now they've all lighted with the silence of strings
Like notes on the pages she breathed life into all things

[Chorus]
If you could help me to share the trouble
But you got burned and then you, then you can help me
And in our time together
Her memory will ever
Shine like golden embers in the night

[Bridge]
Just like an old friend, reach out to me
Bathe me in the light of understanding

[Chorus 2]
Try to help me to share the trouble
But you got burned and then you, then you can help me
And in our time together
Her memory will ever
Shine like golden embers in the night
