Don't try to possess me, I'll slip from your grasp
The things that you seek have already passed
In rushing to own everything that's in sight
Nothing is left no, not even your life

You can't take it when you go
That's something that you oughta know
Love isn't counted in gold
Only in heart and soul

Lies can't hurt, at least that's what you say
But there'll be confusion as sure as night turns to day
Truth is a feeling you just can't deceive
Life's an illusion when you don't believe

Can't take it when you go
That's something that you oughta know
Love isn't counted in gold
Only in heart and soul

Can't take it when you go
That's something that you oughta know
Love isn't counted in gold
Only in heart and soul

Over and over, day after day
Life's precious moments are wasting away
If dreams are the schemes on which futures are made
Dream on sweet dreamer until you reach your grave

You can't take it when you go
That's something that you oughta know
Love isn't counted in gold
Only in heart and soul
