Ajakan Refleksi Sting Bersama Fields of Gold

Fields of Gold bercerita tentang perasaan gembira. Namun lewat lagu ini juga Sting mengingatkan, sukacita bisa berakhir, pada suatu ketika. 


Sting terinspirasi untuk menulis lagu ini ketika pada sebuah sore menikmati matahari tenggelam. Menghayati kehidupan cintanya yang indah bersama Trudie Styler, yang dinikahinya tahun 1992. Sting menggambarkan dengan cerdas perihal kehidupan dengan kalimat yang penuh metafor. Doktor musik ini mengakui Fields of Gold sebagai salah satu lagu favoritnya.

Fields of Gold rilis tahun 1993 dalam album Ten Summoner's Tale. Lagu ini juga rilis dalam single dan mampu meraih posisi 16 pada tangga lagu Inggris dan 23 di Billboard Hot 100 serta nomor 2 pada Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart. Lagu ini menjadi hit banyak negara Eropa, seperti Irlandia, Jerman, Belanda, Swiss, dan beberapa negara lain.

Fields Of Gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in fields of gold

So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in fields of gold

See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of barley
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold
I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We'll walk in fields of gold
We'll walk in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
