Fields of Gold











Angelique first turned me on to this song by Sting. I thought I would check it out and see if it could still make me close my eyes. I feel inspired after listening to it being sung by Eva Cassidy.

You’ll remember me, when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in its jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

So she took her love for to gaze a while
Among the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
And you can tell the sun in its jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
There’ve been some that I’ve broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold

We’ll walk in fields of gold

Many years have past, since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
As you lie in fields of gold

You’ll remember me when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in its jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

~~ Lyrics by Sting ~~

I love this song and it always makes me want to be lying back in a chair with my eyes closed just enjoying the song. I have not heard it by Eva Cassidy but I will listen to her as I do feel so peaceful and relaxed when I hear Sting sing it. Beautiful song.
