Silver on my toes and in my teeth,
Around my neck.
Why not gold –
The color of wealth, luck and fortune?
Because silver is beauty and lovely and fine,
How it’s sprinkled in the sky and
Across the sea.
There’s gold in your eyes but there’s
Silver in your voice and
In your touch As they
Across my skin.
It’s a silver moon that drowns us and keeps our
Golden warmth can make me smile,
But it’s the silver lights
That make me fall in love.
