"Where There's Gold" as written by and Christopher Andrew Carrabba....
Step on the stage
The lights, the praise
The curtain calls
And the big parade
You know that life all too well

The promise, the pain
The valor, the rage
Hold up your hands
For the bow and the wave
You know his touch
A little too well

You throw yourself
Into their arms
Mistresses have all the fun
But no one's ever there to take you home

Box up your gloves and your
Down coats
Bound for the sun and the
West coast
Where upper crust tragedies abound

A tip for the girl at the
Coat check
The guy at the door and the
Bar back
They know your face
Oh so well

But movies never made you famous
All your dreams got lost or traded
And all you ever cared about got lost

But you were surely still an actress
Older men would find attractive
And all you ever dreamed of was the cost

Where there's gold, there's a gold digger
Where there's gold, there's a gold digger
Where there's gold, there's a gold digger
Where there's gold, there's a gold digger
Where there's gold, there's a gold digger
Where there's gold, there's a gold digger
You throw yourself
Into their arms
Mistresses have all the fun
But no one's ever there to take you home

    General CommentThe worst song he's written? Really? Wow. I think this is one of the best on the new album and very good next to the best in the Dashboard library.

    This seems to be about fame and how someone became lost in it. Gone are the ambitions and the person he or she once was. Despite the celebrity, this person is now very alone in the world and doesn't know who to trust.
