Brighter Than Gold
The Cat Empire Lyrics


Four steps in the morning,
Two steps in the day,
Three steps in the evening,
The darkness is a?blazing all the angels? seats
And soldiers step to liberate
Ola e, ola e

I run out like a cheetah
Monkey's in the blood
What a piece of work this man
Who screams the name of love
But all his brothers, cousins, sisters, and others hear his fuss
Ola e, ola e

[Chorus]
All night awake,
In the moonlight I'm with you
In the moonlight I'm with you brighter than gold

Born on the horizon,
Beaming through the sky
Someone's seen what none can dream,
But light calls it a lie
And all the sinners, saints and winners,
Just wait to walk on by
Ola e, ola e

The Brando's in the forest,
And Nancy's in the flood
The ? makes a pirouette
The gods cry from above
And all the rain keeps falling,
I'm bare-feet in the mud
Ola e, ola e

[Chorus]

Ola e, ola e

Come northern lights of Norway
Come sunrise to the East
Come wicked witches of the west,
West-south time with a beat
And all the lions, riots and preachers come down into the street
Ola e, ola e

All night awake,
In the moonlight I'm with you
In the moonlight I'm with you brighter than
All night awake,
In the moonlight I'm with you
In the moonlight I'm with you brighter than gold

Four steps in the morning
Two steps in the day
Three steps in the evening and the darkness is ablaze
And all the angels cease, soldiers come step to the parade

Run out like a cheetah
Monkey's in the blood
And what a piece of work is man who screams the name of love
And all his brothers, cousins, sisters and others hear it's fuzz

All night awake
In the moonlight I'm with you
In the moonlight I'm with you
Brighter than gold!

Born on the horizon
Beam me through the sky
Some have seen what none can dream but life calls it a lie
And all the sinners, saints and winners just wink and walk on by

Brando's in the forest, Nancy's in the flood
The black swan makes a pirouette, the gods cry from above
And the rain keeps falling on bare feet in the mud

All night awake
In the moonlight I'm with you
In the moonlight I'm with you
Brighter than gold!

Come Northern nights from Norway
Come sunrise from the East
Come Wicked Witches in the West, we're South-bound with the beat
And all the lions, prides and preachers come down into the street

All night awake
In the moonlight I'm with you
In the moonlight I'm with you
Brighter than,

All night awake
In the moonlight I'm with you
In the moonlight I'm with you
Brighter than gold!

Cat Empire is definitely the "just randomly found this band and I'm now in love" band.
