Inspiring women: Lhasa de Sela

Over the holidays, Lhasa was my constant soundtrack. So I was sad and shocked to learn that Lhasa passed away on New Year's Day of breast cancer. She was so young and so full of talent. And I'd just discovered her and was excited to hear more and more from her. Laura (who introduced me to her) and I were only recently hoping she'd play a show in Toronto soon. Fool's Gold will be the song that if I listen to 5 years from now will take me right back of winter 2009/2010.



You told me that you'd stay with me
And shelter me forever
That was a hard promise to keep
I can't blame you for the bad weather

After all that has been said and done
I won't ask you where you're going
Don't keep in touch, I don't miss you much
Except sometimes early in the morning

Now use your silver tongue once more
There's one thing that I'd like to know
Did you ever believe the lies that you told?
Did you earn the fool's gold that you gave me?

I forgive you wanting to be free
I realize you long to wander
And I sympathize with your roving eyes
I just can't forgive your bad manners

Now use your silver tongue once more
There's one thing that I'd like to know
Did you ever believe the lies that you told?
Did you earn the fool's gold that you gave me?
Did you ever believe the lies that you told?
Did you earn the fool's gold that you gave me?
