Blue Fringe: City of Gold

A moving song to Jerusalem, City of Gold was written by Blue Fringe, an American Jewish band. 

City Of Gold

What have I become
When all I feel is numb
To the numbers
That’s all they are to me now

I can’t read the news anymore
It’s all the same to me
It’s all monotony
When did I grow so cynical?
Nothing helps me, nothings helps you see-
A wave of helplessness
Has washed me away
And I can’t get back

CHORUS:
I am lost without you; I need to be with you
How can I help ease your pain? Just tell me what to do
I am here without you, standing in the cold
How can I help ease your pain, city of gold

Not a day goes by
that you’re not on my mind
I’m mixed up with emotions
I wanna take up arms
I need a hand to hold.
But there’s nothing I can do
And there’s nothing worse than thinking back

CHORUS

I can’t stand to see the world close it’s eyes
To the truth
And I can’t stand to see myself
Standing still

Some days I just wanna put it all behind
And come to you and comfort you

I am lost without you; I need to be with you.
How can I help ease your pain? Just tell me what to do
I am here without you, standing in the cold
How can I help ease your pain, city of gold
