"Temples Of Gold" as written by and Roy S./youngblood Khantatat....
I see you when it snows
In crystals dancing down
From a sultry sky
When silence is pure and unbreakable

I can see you smiling
In every frozen tear
I can hear you whisper "You and I?

Little did we know
That they were life itself
The days passing by
We both had our share in the sacrifice

Once upon a time
We had something beautiful
Once upon a time
I thought "you and I?

Take me wherever
The answer lingers in the sand
Show me the way as the story unfolds
Love is remote
In this wailing winter wonderland
Show me the way to the temples of gold

Bless me with a kiss
Across the universe
When day and night converge
And whisper my name till I fall asleep

Tell me tales from days bygone
Tell me little lies
Tell me once again it's just "you and I?

    General CommentAmazingly sad song. I'm assuming this man's love died. He misses her dearly and remembers the days when she was alive and how happy he once was. "we both had our share in the sacrifice"--> Her life ended, but he still has to carry on life without her. That's wut i get from it anyways. (this be my ringtone!!)

    General Commenttwo people falling out of love because of life's difficulties... one of them looks to their wonderful days together and would like to bring that back, however, everything is too late

    i dont know why "Temples of Gold" is used as a reference for the lost love. nothing seem to be romantic about it, so i kind of imagine two people (lovers probably) who lost their love for each other while on a quest for the "temples of gold" which is sort of a promise land for them.

    i would really want to hear what roy khan was thinking of when he wrote this, it just sounded so heartfelt
