New Song: Tokens & Trinkets & Gold

Tokens & Trinkets & Gold

Newspapers, letters and things that are written
Goldfish and birds and an unwanted kitten
Trophies and gold rings and bouquets of flowers
A grandfather clock that makes noise every hour

So leave it all for me to find
The things you cannot leave behind
All your tokens and trinkets and gold
And though it is quite plain to see
That none of this means much to me
I will wait for you ’til I am old
You’ll come back with you stuff’s still unsold
I will wait for you ’til all the oceans rise, skies will tear open and rain will unfold

An old record player and some records with scratches
A candle and four hundred boxes of matches
The things that you love and those things you forgot
And these walls that contain all those things that you’ve got

So leave it all for me to find
The things you cannot leave behind
All your tokens and trinkets and gold
And though it is quite plain to see
That none of this means much to me
I will wait for you ’til I am old
You’ll come back with you stuff’s still unsold
I will wait for you ’til all the oceans rise, skies will tear open and rain will unfold
I will wait for you ’til I am old

Goldfish and birds and an unwanted kitten
Newspapers, letters and things I have written
I know that I can’t make you stay
So I just hope that you’ll come back someday

So leave it all for me to find
The things you cannot leave behind
All your tokens and trinkets and gold
And though it is quite plain to see
That none of this means much to me
I will wait for you ’til I am old
You’ll come back with you stuff’s still unsold
I will wait for you ’til I am white haired and wrinkly, my looks will be gone I am told
I will wait for you ’til I am old
I will wait for you ’til I am old
