Rubies and Gold

(unreleased song, 1980)

Words and Music by Tori (Ellen) Amos and Mike Amos

Rubies and Gold
star of my moonlight
warmer than a rose in spring
The kingdoms were sold
to hold their beauty, well
I'd sell my life anyway
just to say I held their heart in my arms
there's strength in my soul

Rubies and Gold
are you to me
You're a jewel upon my chest
warming my heart with your kisses,
a peaceful way to rest
fulfilling my life long wishes
And silently you're watching me
stroking my cheek with your hand
your eyes are deep yet filled with tears
I've never seen so much love in a man.

Rubies and Gold
star of my moonlight
warmer than roses in spring
The kingdoms were sold
to hold their beauty, well
I'd sell my life anyway
just to say I held their hearts in my arms
there's strength in my soul
