A ring sits on the bedside. It’s lost its love worn shine. (A Country Music Lovers Winner)
A Band of Gold

I wake up as the light unfolds;
another day of dread.
The sunlight paints a band of gold
across the empty bed.
It doesn’t warm the ling’ring cold
or change what lies ahead.

(Refrain)
A ring sits on the bedside.
It’s lost its love worn shine.
A circle holding loneliness
just like this heart of mine.


The wrapper on my cigarettes
is held by a thin band
reminding me of my regrets.
This isn’t what we planned
when first I placed a golden ring
upon your loving hand.

(Refrain)
A ring sits on the bedside.
It’s lost its love worn shine.
A circle holding loneliness
just like this heart of mine.


It seems that everywhere I turn
I can’t escape the signs
as thoughts of what we had return.
The images remind
me of the bridges we have burned.
They won’t go from my mind.

Each morning as I wake up,
the pain and hurt still linger
like the pale gold memory
that wraps around my finger.

(Refrain)
A ring sits on the bedside.
It’s lost its love worn shine.
A circle holding loneliness
just like this heart of mine.
