lyrics

You’re the folk song's hero

the girl with her hair blowing in the breeze

come to climb the mountain

see if you can catch a glimpse of me today



Cause our love is Golden light

strong enough to last the strongest night



I’m a long lost sailor

stranded out at sea

pining for my homeland

and the girl waiting for me, back home



Cause our love is Golden light

strong enough to last the strongest night



And I miss my homeland far across the seas

misty mountains and the rain

just waiting for me, back home



Cause our love is golden light

strong enough to make the distance seem alright.
