A heart of gold stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
The leaves and flowers may wither
The golden sun may set
But the hearts that love so dearly
Are the ones who won’t forget.

Un cuore d’oro s’e fermato di battere
Mani di gran lavoratore a riposo.
il Signore ha spezzato i nostri cuori
per farci capire che Lui si prende
solo il migliore.
Le foglie, I fiori forse appassiscono
il sole dorato forse si posa
ma i cuori che amano cosi
caramente sono quelle che
non dimenticano.
