From the recording A Rude Awakening


Now that hard times leave us shakenSwaying as the cruel wind blowsOne possession can’t be takenA single jewel still glowsI say to you words fair and trueOne treasure stands aboveI’d trade all the gold in Spanish ships of oldFor a deep and abiding loveGalleons sailing through the agesHad riches from stern to bowUseless when the fever ragesGive me a cool soothing hand on my browSo take your gold and take your silverBut leave our love aloneWe made a vow to last foreverTill the sun’s just a cold grey stone
