Lyrics:

Thank you for coming home
I’m sorry that the chairs are all worn
I left them here I could have sworn
These are my salad days
Slowly being eaten away
Just another play for today
Oh but I’m proud of you but I’m proud of you

Nothing left to make me feel small
Luck has left me standing so tall

Gold (gold)
Always believe in your soul
You’ve got the power to know
You’re indestructible
Always believe in
‘Cause you are
Gold (gold)
Glad that you’re bound to return
There’s something I could have learned
You’re indestructible
Always believin’

Oh after the rush has gone
I hope you find a little more time
Remember we were partners in crime
It’s only two years ago
The man with the suit and the face
You knew that he was there on the case
Now he’s in love with you he’s in love with you

My love is like a high prison wall
But you could leave me standing so tall

Gold (gold)
Always believe in your soul
You’ve got the power to know
You’re indestructible
Always believe in
‘Cause you are
Gold (gold)
Glad that you’re bound to return
There’s something I could have learned
You’re indestructible
Always believin’

My love is like a high prison wall
And you could leave me standing so tall

Gold (gold)
Oh always believe in your soul
You’ve got the power to know
You’re indestructible
Always believe in
‘Cause you are
Gold (gold)
Glad that you’re bound to return
Something I could have learned
You’re indestructible
Always believin’
