"Gold" as written by and Marina Lambrini Diamandis....
You've got it in the palm of your hands
It's slipping through your fingers like sand
'Cause they don't understand who you are
Doesn't matter as long as I am your star, star

Yeah, I know that I need the gold
But what I love can't be bought or sold

Don't think I want what I used to want
Don't think I need what I used to need
Don't think I want what I used to want
Don't think I see what I used to see

I've been waiting, waiting for the penny to drop
I've been working, working to get back what I lost, I lost
But whatever happens, I'll be okay
'Cause fortune's running out of my veins, my veins

You can't take away the Midas' touch
So you better make a way for a Greek gold rush

Don't think I want what I used to want
Don't think I need what I used to need
Don't think I want what I used to want
Don't think I see what I used to see

In El Dorado, your gold
To Colorado can't be bought or sold

Now, there's no moral to this story
But I can hear my freedom calling me, calling me

I don't care that everybody knows
I'm a million dollars in the hole
I don't care that everybody knows
Baby, I don't even want your gold

From El Dorado, your gold
To Colorado can't be bought or sold

Gold rush
Gold rush
Free, free, free, free, free, I am free

    General CommentThis song is about freedom from an empty desire and going after morally,personally fulfilling things instead. :)

    General CommentI think this song is incredible, esp after Electra Heart when it was all about doing ANYTHING to be wanted, even to be the bad guy. It's about casting off things for other people, earning things and feeling worthwhile for yourself
