Silver and Gold (c) Brian Bedford

Long long ago in a land far away
That's how the story is told
Picture book lives lived on picture book sands
Where a picture book history unfolds
A picture book face in a picture book time
A picture book child smeared with picture book grime
It's only a story, a tale often told
Wrapped in picture book silver and gold

Chorus
For here in the yule log and fantasy
I hide from the truth while I can
And far, far away, they're still fighting today
In the land where this story began

Songs full of meaning, but what do they hide
In carols of winter and snow
From a story of deserts, oppression and pride
That happened a long time ago
In shops full of goodwill and stores full of joy
An image of giving wrapped up in a toy
Presents and parcels and gifts to unfold
Wrapped with Ribbons of silver and gold
Chorus

On a night calm and bright, we sing Silent Night
And heavenly peace fills the air
And young folk and old in the flickering light
Create memories and moments to share
An album to open and look through each year
On days when reality's drawing too near
Stories to treasure and feelings to hold
Framed in pictures of silver and gold Chorus
Chorus

Bridge
Gold for the fighter who settles the score
Gold for the children you train for the war
Gold for the rifles that should have brought grain
Gold for the glory that hides every stain
Repeat first verse and chorus.
