"Once You Had Gold" as written by Nicky Ryan, Roma Ryan and Eithne Ni Bhraonain....
Once you had gold,
Once you had silver,
Then came the rains
Out of the blue.
Ever and always.
Always and ever.
Time gave both darkness and dreams to you.

Now you can see
Spring becomes autumn,
Leaves become gold
Falling from view.
Ever and always.
Always and ever.
No-one can promise a dream come true,
Time gave both darkness and dreams to you.

What is the dark;
Shadows around you,
Why not take heart
In the new day?
Ever and always.
Always and ever.
No-one can promise a dream for you,
Time gave both darkness and dreams to you.

    General CommentIMO it sounds like gold and silver (especially with the sense of the tune) are very much reminiscent of fantasy and dream,
    it makes me think of the dreams and mindset of an innocent childhood, before the realities (the rain) of life were fully comprehended.

    With those things came the death of the early 'Golden Age' (darkness), but with them also came the depth needed for true greatness (dreams)
