lyrics

His heart
Is a complicated vessel
Pumping strange blood through his veins

Her love
And loyalty got broken
Swallowed and regurgitated pain

When she told him of the butterflies and diamond skulls so bold
His scorn and derision left her cold
The compensation that his ego drew
Made her realise, made her blue

Mother, all that glitters is not gold
Mother, all that glitters is not gold

Three years
Since her world began to crumble
An abandoned orphan in the sun

It's been 2 years
Since she saw his true colours
Like dollar signs on fruit machines undone

When she told him of the butterflies he made a mockery
Pouring scorn and derision on where he’d like to be
The compensation that his ego drew
Made her realise, made her blue….

Mother, all that glitters is not gold
Mother, all that glitters is not gold

He took away the things he loved
And all the things he never sold
And he took his cold plaster of paris heart
Dipped and in sparkles rolled
Dipped and in sparkles rolled

Mother, all that glitters is not gold
Mother, all that glitters is not gold
