[Official lyrics] Gold Dust – Changmin’s solo @ ‘The Mission II’

*8/18/2014 — This post was originally my ‘amateur transcription’ using a fancam of Changmin. To my surprise, Christopher Wortley, the songwriter of Gold Dust left a comment with the correct lyrics. I therefore deleted my transcription.

Please be respectful: do not redistribute without properly crediting Christopher Wortley. I would prefer you link back to this post as Mr. Wortley took the time to personally leave a reply here.

Gold Dust

[Verse]
Stay and make it right again
Stay and make it right again
Yes I know I hurt you, Baby
Witness one careless kiss
But stay tonight and make it right again

[Pre-chorus 1]
Used to end each day
Safely gathered in
And I was sure
Now I’m left standing by the door
Crying for the time when I
Was yours

[Chorus]
In the dark, by an open fire
We shone like gold dust
Gone, Gone, Gone
Gone, Gone, Gone
Now, I’ve lost it all
Slipped through my fingers
Shone, Shone, Shone
Gone, Gone, Gone
Beneath the stones

[Verse 2]
Tears between the silences
But tears can’t make it right again
Got some friends to take me places
Lately I’m smiling more
‘Cause tears will never make it right again

[Pre-chorus 2]
But I sometimes hear your key
Or dream that you’re asleep
Beside my touch
Because I can’t let go of love
And I can never say goodbye
Enough

[Repeat Chorus]

[Middle Section]
Silent dream
Set me free

[Repeat Chorus]

I can’t get enough of Gold Dust! It totally exploits my weakness being Changmin’s innately soft manner in song and as a person. Lyrics for Yunho’s lovely solo: “Tethered Ship”.

  1. I want to correct your ver of Gold Dust lyrics a bit :)
    But this is solesly my opinion based on what I heard kkk.
    So the ‘I’m here standing by the door’ should be ‘im left standing by the door’ ; ‘beneath the stars’ should be ‘beneath the stones’
    The first line of the reff sounds weird but actually I couldn’t catch the lyrics well, so

  2. Hi

    Thank you for liking the song :)
    The transcription of the lyrics isn’t quite right . . .
    Here are the lyrics as I wrote them:-

    [Verse]
    Stay and make it right again
    Stay and make it right again
    Yes I know I hurt you, Baby
    Witness one careless kiss
    But stay tonight and make it right again

    [Pre-chorus 1]
    Used to end each day
    Safely gathered in
    And I was sure
    Now I’m left standing by the door
    Crying for the time when I
    Was yours

    [Chorus]
    In the dark, by an open fire
    We shone like gold dust
    Gone, Gone, Gone
    Gone, Gone, Gone
    Now, I’ve lost it all
    Slipped through my fingers
    Shone, Shone, Shone
    Gone, Gone, Gone
    Beneath the stones

    [Verse 2]
    Tears between the silences
    But tears can’t make it right again
    Got some friends to take me places

    ‘Cause tears will never make it right again

    [Pre-chorus 2]
    But I sometimes hear your key
    Or dream that you’re asleep
    Beside my touch
    Because I can’t let go of love
    And I can never say goodbye
    Enough

  3. Thank you for sharing this! It’s extremely kind of Christopher Wortley to have replied to your request, been searching around for this and while Changmin’s English is pretty good, it can be confusing at times…
