Married in a Gold Rush 3:42

(feat. Danielle Haim)

Ezra:

Something’s happening in the country
And the government’s to blame
We got married in a gold rush
And the rush has never felt the same

Danielle:

Shared a moment in a café
Shared a kiss in pouring rain
We got married in a gold rush
And the sight of gold will always bring me pain

Chorus:

Ezra:

I don’t wanna hear the rumors
Please don’t say it loud
I just wanna go out tonight & make my baby proud

Danielle:

Boy, who’s your baby?

Ezra:

Girl, if you don’t know by now...
There’s two seats on the midnight train
The gold won’t weigh us down

Ezra:

Hanging gardens turned to desert

Danielle:

All that loving turned to hate

Together: We got married in a gold rush
And those wedding bells were ringing out our fate

Chorus

Bridge

Ezra:

The rush is on to somewhere else
We’re running out of time
Everything was ours
Now it’s just an empty mine

Danielle:

Animals don’t understand
The words on the danger sign
For them, it’s just some shade from the morning shine

Ezra:

I thought you might learn the language

Danielle:

I thought you might learn to sing

Together:

We were born before the gold rush
So why can’t I remember anything?

Ezra:

I want to put things back together

Danielle:

I want to give, I don’t wanna take

Ezra:

Time to disavow the gold rush
And the bitterness that’s flourished in its wake

Chorus
