Mike & The Mechanics

Mike & The Mechanics - A Beggar On A Beach Of Gold

rate me

I didn't know when I was lucky

Discontented feeling bad

Filled with envy

For possessions other people had

I found my pride had always hurt me

Fought the world to gain control

Not realising

I was sitting on a beach of gold

Oh lord I'm a poor man

With all the riches I can hold

I'm a beggar

And I'm sitting on a beach of gold

The problems I encountered

Gave me strength helped me sustain

To know the pleasure

First I had to cure the pain

When I was searching for solutions

I found the answer lay in me

I'm a drifter

But I'm drifting on a silver sea

Oh lord I'm a poor man

With all the riches I can hold

I'm a beggar

And I'm sitting on a beach of gold

I didn't have courage

My life was as dark as night

When alone in the darkness

I saw the brightest light

Let the light shine down

Are you out there now on empty

Feel you've nothing left to give

Sick of trying

Have you lost the will to live?

Don't be drowning in the shallows

With the beach so near at hand

Hear the voice say

Stand up get up

And join me on the gilded sand

Come and join me on the beach

With all the riches I can hold

Cause I'm a beggar

And I'm sitting on a beach of gold

Oh lord I'm a poor man

With all the riches I can hold

I'm a beggar

I'm sitting on a beach of gold

My children my salvation

The father to this man

They're my teachers

Playing on the golden sand

With my family all around me

I've all the riches I can hold

I'm a beggar

Sitting on a beach of gold

Oh lord I'm a poor man

With all the riches I can hold

I'm a beggar

Sitting on a beach of gold
