Riches Lyrics

by Deacon Blue

It's good to know how big a life can be
Especially when it falls away so easily
And how hard it is to let you take your leave
Also I wish you all the things that you believe in

Like riches, now that they're different
And work with your burden lifted
Like riches, now that they're different
And work with your burden lifted

I wish all those things if you would leave
Bright clothes for winter
Bright clothes for winter

When you go on your journey don't say goodbye
Don't need clothes to wear, money to buy
Don't take a bed to sleep in or sleeves to cry on
And don't go gently into that good night

And take riches now that they're different
And work your burden lifted
Take riches now that they're different
And work with your burden lifted

I wish all those things if you would leave
Bright clothes for winter
Bright clothes for winter

You found a great big kingdom
And you gave it all away
And how I want live there
And how I hope you'll stay

And take riches now that they're different
And work with your burden lifted
Take riches now that they're different
And work with your burden lifted

I wish all those things if you would leave
Bright clothes for winter
Bright clothes for winter
Bright clothes for winter
