Lyrics - original version

Rock on--gold dust woman
Take your silver spoon,
And dig your grave

Heartless challenge
Pick your path and I'll pray

Wake up in the morning
See your sunrise--loves--to go down
Lousy lovers--pick their prey
But they never cry out loud

Did she make you cry
Make you break down
Shatter your illusions of love
Is it over now--do you know how
Pick up the pieces and go home.

Rock on--ancient queen
Follow those who pale
In your shadow

Rulers make bad lovers
You better put your kingdom up for sale

Did she make you cry
Make you break down
Shatter your illusions of love
Is it over now--do you know how
Pick up the pieces and go home.

Lyrics - live version on The Dance video:

Rock on Gold Dust Woman
Take your silver spoon
And dig your grave
Well its a heartless challenge
You pick your path
And then you pray
You wake up in the morning
You see your sunrise, loves, to go down
Lousy lovers
They pick their prey
But they never cry out loud
No they don't try out, cry out

Well did she make you cry
Make you break down
Shatter your illusions of love
Well is it over now
Do you know how to pick up the pieces and go home

So rock on, ancient queen
Follow those who pale in your shadows
They say rulers,
They make bad lovers
You'd better put your kingdom up for sale
Well you'd better sell it, sell it

Well did she make you cry,
Make you break down,
Shatter your illusions of love
Well is it over now ,
Do you know how to pick up the pieces and go home

Well did she make you cry,
Make you break down,
Shatter your illusions of love,
Now tell me is it over now
Do you know how to pick up the pieces and go home
And go home
And go home....

Ooh pale shadow of a woman
Ooh black widow, ooh yeah
Ooh pale shadow, shes a dragon
Gold Dust Woman
Ooh pale shadow of a woman,
Ooh black widow, ooh yeah
Ooh pale shadow, shes a dragon
Gold Dust Woman
Runnin' in the shadows (woman)
Runnin' in the shadows (woman)
Runnin' in the shadows
Runnin' in the shadows
Said something
Runnin' in the shadows,
Gold Dust
Runnin' in the shadows,
Gold Dust
Runnin' in the Shadows,
Gold Dust
Runnin' in the shadows
