"Stay Gold" as written by Paul Richard Epworth, Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell....
A time to laugh, a time to cry
And beat the darkness into light
We'll write our names across the town
Up is up and so is down

Forgive your lovers, but don't forget their names
And let their spirit remain
Stay gold, gold
You shine the light for us to follow, gold
You shine the light for us to follow, gold
You shine the light for us to follow

The stings our fingers just won't go
Chrome letters, outlines, arrows fall
The words took off, we watched them fall
Desire of our mind is now written on the wall

Forgive your lovers, but don't forget their names
And let their spirit remain
Stay gold, gold
You shine the light for us to follow, gold
You shine the light for us to follow, gold
You shine the light for us to follow

How vast the darkness
We disappear into the light
Follow the torch we made
In the end, we're all made of gold
And now I know, I will not be saved
Unless I follow
And now I know, I will not be saved
Unless I follow

Stay gold, gold
You shine the light for us to follow, gold
You shine the light for us to follow, gold
You shine the light for us to follow

If you lead, I will follow

    General CommentI love this song! I think The Big Pink made a mistake in their choice of single for this album. I can see this song getting a LOT of radio play and becoming a common track at parties and clubs.
    I think it's a simple "live for the moment and be happy" sort of song, accepting your mistakes but not regretting them "forgive your lovers but don't forget their names" although that may also be, remember their wrongs but forgive them.

    Overall though it's such a catchy and upbeat song, I love it!
