May All Your Days Be Gold

13 Jan

I heard this song in the car the other day on KEXP. It reminded me of my recent manifesto to start every day cuddling with my baby.

If you’re in the mood for a feel-good tune, this is well worth a listen.

“In silver piles of smiles,/May all your days be gold, my child … ”

Gold Day

By Sparklehorse

Good morning, my child.

Stay with me awhile.
You’ve not got any place to be.
Won’t you sit a spell with me?

You’ve got diamonds for eyes.
It’s time for you to rise
And evaporate
in the sun.
Sometimes it can weigh
A ton.

Keep all your crows away.
Hold skinny woves at bay.
In silver piles of smiles.
May all your days be gold my child.

A necklace of leaves,
Spirits in the trees,
And drown all the clocks,
Till there’s none.
Little pendium in the sun.

Keep all your crows away.
Hold skinny wolves at bay.
In silver piles of smiles,
May all your days be gold, my child.

Good morning, my child.
Stay with me awhile.
And evaporate in the sun.
Sometimes it can weight a ton.

Keep all your crows away.
Hold skinny wolves at bay.
In silver piles of smiles,
May all your days be gold, my child.
May all your days be gold, my child.
May all your days be gold, my child.
May all your days be gold, my child.
