"Green Eyes and a Heart of Gold" as written by Zach Williams and Brian Elmquist....
Green eyes and a heart of gold
All the money’s gone and the house is cold
And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

You wear your faded old dress
The night of the 4th of July
The darkness kept your silhouette
When light flash crossed the sky
One crash at a time
One crash at a time

Green eyes and a heart of gold
All the money’s gone and the house is cold
And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

We are broke in New York City
The F-train takes us home
Oh what our ways may look like
Back where we're from
It's harder than we thought it'd be
We're losing blood with every beat
Our song is not a dying dream
You're not alone, you’re not alone

Green eyes and a heart of gold
All the money’s gone and the house is cold
And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

One crash at a time

You wear your faded old dress
The night of the 4th of July
Your face a lovely song where
The fireworks crash
We broke in New York City
The F-train takes us home
Oh what our ways may look like
Back where we're from

Green eyes and a heart of gold
All the money’s gone and the house is cold
And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright

    I think this should be:

    "Our wide eyed ways may look like
    A wreck where we are from"


    This song is amazing by the way. Surprised no one else has even commented on it. It's a wonderful depiction of facing all of life's hardships together with your lover and conquering it together. "Your face a lovely song where the fireworks crash" gives me chills the way he sings it. Makes me think of my wife every time, and puts a smile on my face

    General CommentI agree with the guy above me. And I can relate. I'm moving cross country for law school on the East Coast. I've never done something like that before. Even though - I'm going on my own I still relate to the sentiment which is, at least I think it is, have the courage to chase your dreams, with or without your partner. It may seem crazy to everyone else - but do it anyway. You'll never regret it.

    But I do agree, this song is about facing the hardships with your partner in a new place. Being broke and maybe a little lost in a new place - but are happier than you've ever been at the same tie.
