lyrics

Would I still feel the chill creeping up and down my spine
And a heart falls apart when your loving it turns to greed

A sea of opportunities is crashing down on me
Trading copper for gold
What does it mean for me to climb the taller tree
And trade in copper for gold

Would I still feel the chill creeping up and down my spine
When your hand brushes against mine
And your eyes meet mine

What kind of prominence is worth the accident
Of trading love for gold
Listening to the lies instead of living life
Trading love for gold

And a heart falls apart when your loving it turns to greed
A gilded spade plants the seed
Of an unclimbable tree

What does it mean for me to climb the taller tree
And watch it cut down beneath my feet
What kind of prominence is worth the accident
Of losing the only one who sees
How I feel when I kneel to the one who stands on my hands
Instead of the one who holds my hand
The one who holds my hand
