I wrote this poem/lyrics on 2014-05-04. I wrote it after a long time not writing. I lost my muse, but I love this poem. This one is one of my favorite. I dedicate "Black Gold" to Jeff Buckley. He inspired me to write "Black Gold". I wrote it while I was listening to his album "Grace". Rest in peace.

Black Gold

You died too young
Your angels' voice
Your deep deep sorrow
Don't you know how I need you?

You left too soon
Your wicked heart
Your drunk drunk love
Don't you know how I need you?

You are from the black gold era
Black is for your melancholy
Gold is for your inexpressible soul

You said goodbye too young
Your golden tears in the paradise
Your rousing heartbreak
Don't you know how I need you?

You passed away too soon
Your mysterious disappearance
Your breathless dream brother
Don't you know how I need you?

You are from the black gold era
Black is for your melancholy
Gold is for your inexpressible soul

You fell asleep too young
Your American breath
Your rootless trailer trash
Don't you know how I need you?

You gone to glory too soon
Your curly dark hair
Your heavenly muse
Don't you know how I need you?

Petroleum is also called Black Gold, put a catalytic Converter along with it and you get your wah wah woom.... Take care....

With regard to leaving too soon, well its highly combustible as it uses natural resources and leaves you falling asleep for millions of years before coming back as Petrol. Take care.
