Click to listen to the song, "Golden."

I'll see you once again
Where the sun doesn't shine 'cause the Lord is our light
And the streets are golden
No broken hearts, no tears in our eyes

Forever, my heart

'Til death did us part

Forever, my friend

'Til death, I'll see you again

I see you again
When time was young and we were strong
Now we are golden
And all I have is a hopeful song

Forever, my heart
'Til death did us part
Forever, my friend
'Til death, I'll see you again
