Thank you for coming home
Sorry that the chairs are all worn
I left them here I could have sworn
These are my salad days
Slowly being eaten away
Just another play for today
Oh, but I'm proud of you, but I'm proud of you
Nothing left to make me feel small
Luck has left me standing so tall

Gold (gold)
Always believe in your soul
You've got the power to know
You're indestructible
Always believe in, 'cause you are
Gold (gold)
Glad that you're bound to return
There's something I could have learned
You're indestructible (always believe in)

After the rush has gone
I hope you find a little more time
Remember we were partners in crime
It's only two years ago
The man with the suit and the face
You knew that he was there on the case
Now he's in love with you, he's in love with you
And love is like a high prison wall
And you could leave me standing so tall

Gold (gold)
Always believe in your soul
You've got the power to know
You're indestructible
Always believe in, 'cause you are
Gold (gold)
I'm glad that you're bound to return
Something I could have learned
You're indestructible (always believe in)

Love is like a high prison wall
And you could leave me standing so tall

Gold (gold)
Always believe in your soul
You've got the power to know
You're indestructible
Always believe in, 'cause you are
Gold (gold)
I'm glad that you're bound to return
Something I could have learned
You're indestructible, always believe in
(Gold)

    General CommentWell, clearly the song is about a mad scientist that creates the perfect cyborg made of pure gold. She runs off to rampage and destroy humanity but she comes back to him in the end.
    He starts singing to her, praising her sturdy design and solid armor plating. He talks abit about the crimes they committed and then has a bout of paranoia "The man with the suit and the pace. You knew that he was there on the case. Now he's in love with you, he's in love with you..." Classic lovers paranoia, thinking that everyone is after her for her love, when in truth they're out to destroy this abomination.

    The references to "High prison walls" is about that he was infact IN prison when she returned to him and now she's busted into the prison, toppling walls and such so the imagery is fresh in his mind.

    A revealing portion of the song comes at the end.

    "Glad that you're bound to return
    There's something I could have learned
    You're indestructable
    Always believe in"

    She was clearly programmed to return to him after a certain amount of time. But what he has realized is that she's indestructable, uncontrollable now that her program has run its course. The reason why the song trails off due to her most likely pulling him apart limb by limb, having now turned on her creator.

    Well...that's what I came up with atleast.

    General CommentI first heard this song when playing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. It's a nice song by SB and I thought that they only had one hit with "True." If you like this song, you might want to pick up the Wave 103 vice city compilation.

    General CommentIv always loved this song, its one of my many favourites from the 80's era. I dont think the original meaning of the song is that important. People put their own meaning to the song on account of thier own personal experiance, especially the chorus. But i wonder if anyone knows this true fact about the song... Gold holds the record of holding the longest single note than any other song from the 80's era. Next time you hear the song, listen out for that note that's held for over 1 minute.

    OK is it just me? are the chairs a bit tatty? Or has he carelessly misplaced them? If the latter then surely he would apologise for them not being there at all, not for them being worn. IOt doesn't make any sense unless the narrator is very confused.
