All I hold is fool's gold, the rest is out of sight
So I'm waiting for
So I'm waiting for li-li-li-light
(Yeah)

I'm stuck in a hole of my mind and soul and my yellow canary is dead
I've been down here years digging for tears and excavating my head
I've been scrimping, saving, dreaming, scheming, tripping all through the night
But all I hold is fool's gold, the rest is out of sight

Lying in the darkness, waiting for the light
Lying in the darkness, until the day
Lying in the darkness, waiting for the light
Lying in the darkness, waiting waiting waiting

Well the boys up top better pull me up 'cause the oxygen has got low
I lost all my friends and I got the bends digging myself into this hole
With my head to the stone, the grinding bone, but try and try as I might
All I hold is fool's gold, the rest is out of sight

Lying in the darkness, waiting for the light
Lying in the darkness, until the day
Lying in the darkness, waiting for the light
Lying in the darkness, waiting waiting waiting

So there I sat with my black flat cap on a catnap miner's stride
Through the gloom of my pitman tomb, me and the golden bride
Sun rays clippin' through the black of night
Now I see that fool's gold, kept me out of sight

Lying in the darkness, waiting for the light
Lying in the darkness, until the day
Lying in the darkness, waiting for the light
Lying in the darkness, waiting waiting waiting

Dark days are these, yeah
I can't get no peace, no
No change of season
No rhyme or reason
And my fingers are cold, yeah
I'm just savin' away my
I'm just savin' away my soul
For fool's gold

(waiting for the light)

Yes I'm waiting for the light, yeah

The li-li-light
