  • His love was like gold dust
    His desire took my lust
    He sent shivers down my spine
    His ghost echoes in my mind
    The one heart I thought I could trust
    His love was like Gold Dust

    His love was my oxygen
    He was my addiction
    He played such a beautiful game
    It used to drive me insane
    The one heart it thought I could trust
    His love was like Gold Dust

    You don't know what you feel as time moves on
    You don't know what you want until its lost and gone
    I never realised that my heart could rust
    Until love slipped through my fingertips like gold dust

    Now his love won't leave me alone
    His words are on my tombstone
    And tears won't wash them away
    I guess that's the price you pay
    To put faith in a heart you trust
    His love was Gold Dust

    You don't know what you fear until you powerless
    You don't know what you want until your truly obsessed
    I never realised that my heart could rust
    Until love slipped through my fingertips like Gold Dust

    His love was my final dance
    With such innocent romance
    The flowers will dry out with time
    His ghost echoes in my mind
    The one heart I thought I could trust
    His love was like Gold Dust
    The one heart I thought I could trust
    His love was like Gold Dust
    The one heart I thought I could trust
    His love was like Gold Dust
