lyrics

Soft like Gold

Picture us by this old and soundless river
On the outer edge of space,
Where the body comes not ever,
But the absent dream has a place,
Where we loved and laughed and sorrowed
In a thousand worlds of old;

Neither sun, nor star, behold—
Such a beauty, soft like gold,
Now we rest and dream for ever...

And I wander there in my mind sometimes when my heart is clear,
Vistas of vast arch and column, Shadowed by unearthly trees—
We can tell the paths and seasons
Of the farthest suns that shine.
Where we loved and laughed and sorrowed
In a thousand worlds of old;

Neither sun, nor star, behold—
Such a beauty, soft like gold,
Now we rest and dream for ever...
--
Lyrics based on a poem by Archibald Lampman (1861-1899)

about

October Gold Montréal, Québec

October Gold, an alt-folk duo based out of Montreal, is the latest collaboration of singer/songwriter Kit Soden and his partner in music (and life), violinist Aliza Thibodeau. This marriage of Soden's folksy roots and Thibodeau's classical sensibilities has created a unique sound described as "painting your imagination with song."

October Gold recently released their sophomore album in July 2013.
