"G0LD" is the title track from an upcoming album and the 3rd single released from it. This song is a somewhat a departure from Asela's signature style, featuring Guzheng as an instrument of choice, while maintaining that Indie quintessence. This song is a tiny narrative on a man's journey from riches to rags, from the weight of the world to being afloat in blissful space.


There once was a man,
Who lived in fear,
Of the day that would come,
Take all he holds dear.

From house to clothes,
To glory gold.
Torn to shreds,
He silently wept.

From the depths of the flood,
Grew firmer the mud,
Rooted his feet,
In earth so complete.

As the skies pelted rain,
The sun called his name,
Warmth filled his soul,
Ran thicker than gold.

Gold, Gold.

The man looked around,
What was lost is now found,
A house of the Earth,
The joy of the word,
When nothing is all,
And all is but love,
From the wrecking of a house,
A home he had found.

Found, Found.
