24 Karat Gold

(4:53)

Ooh…ooh…
When  she lay face-down in the rain
What kind of freedom that she wanted
What kind of game
He was nowhere to be found
Here comes the cold chill
It’s too bad

(There were dreams to be sold)
They were my dreams to be sold
You like my 24 karat gold chain of chains
Some islands to be found
They said you might be coming back to town

Ooh…

In the wind and rain and far beneath
There was this castle
And they tried to keep it
In deep dreams and my sleep
And each one of us must finally keep some kind of promises to you
In my deep and hidden dreams
Do you choose to remember your dreams
In those deep and hidden dreams
But there were dreams to be sold

They were my dreams
My 24 karat gold
(chain of chains)
You said “return to me”

Don’t blame me, set me free
I myself, see myself differently
Than the one that only you see
But he nowhere to be found
Cold chill
But it’s just me, it’s just me
But it’s just me, it’s just me
In deep dreams, in my deep dreams
And to my lost and my crying angels
Ooh..
And to my lost and my crying angels

Set me free….
Set me free….
(Set me free…)
Set me free…
Set me free….

5:30 (music box in background)

Ooh..ooh…
When she lay face-down in the rain
What kind of freedom that she wanted
What kind of game
He was nowhere to be found
Here comes the cold chill
It’s too bad
(It’s too bad)

They were my dreams to be sold
(my dreams to be sold)
My 24 karat gold chain of chains
(24 karat gold…chain of chains)

Some islands to be found
They said you might be coming back to town…

Ooh…
(ooh…ooh…)
In the wind and the rain and far beneath
And there was this castle and they tried to keep it
(and there was this castle and they…tried to keep it)
In deep dreams and my sleep
And each one of us must finally keep some kind of promises to you
In my deep and hidden dreams
If you choose to remember
(if you choose to remember your dreams)
Those deep and hidden dreams

But there were dreams to be sold
You like my dreams, my 24 karat gold
(you like my dreams…my gold…chain of chains)
You said ‘return to me’…

Don’t blame me, set me free
I myself, see myself differently than the one that only you see
But he was nowhere to be found
Cold chill
But it’s just me, it’s just me
But it’s just me, it’s just me
In deep dreams, in my dreams
(in those deep and hidden dreams)
And to my lost and my crying angels
And to my lost and my crying angels
Ooh…
And to my lost and my crying angels

Set me free….
Set me free….
(ooh…)
Set me free….

Set me free, set me free
Is this what you wanted to happen to me
Golden wings in the sunset
Take me back
All alone I waited
There was no one…to be there
Mmm…

There were dreams to be sold
Yeah…
You like my 24 karat gold chain of chains
Yeah…
There was some love to be shown
They said you might be coming back to town…
Ooh…
Said you might be coming back to town….

Let me be
Set me free
All alone I waited
There was…no one…to be there
In the rain she lay face down
What is this freedom that she wanted
What kind of freedom
What kind of…game
Ooh…
What kind of freedom
What kind of game

There was some dreams to be sold, my dreams
My 24 karat, my 24 karat,, my 24 karat chain of chains
Is this what you wanted
Oh, but he was nowhere to be found
Here comes the cold chill

And there is a world that rises in beside the windrows
And there is a world that rises within the windrows

Set me free…

In and out of strange relationships

Ooh, but it’s just me, it’s just me
And to my lost and my crying angels

There is a world that rises within the windrows
So it grows
