Is there ever enough space between us
To keep us both honest and true?
Why is it so hard just to sit in the yard
And stare at the sky so blue?

I've got a new way of walking and a new way of talking
Honey, when I'm around you
But it gives me the blues when I've got some good news
And you're not there to bring it to

Life is a blessing, it's a delicatessen
Of all the little favors you do
All wrapped up together no matter the weather
Baby, you always come through

Well it's a measure of treasure that gives me the pleasure
Of loving you the way I do
And you know I would gladly say I need your love badly
And bring these little things to you

'Cause you got gold
Gold inside of you
You got gold
Gold inside of you
Well, I got some
Gold inside me too

Well, I'm thinking, I'm knowing that I gotta be going
You know I hate to say so long
It gives me an ocean of mixed up emotion
I'll have to work it out in a song

Well, I'm leaving a lot for the little I got
But you know a lot a little will do
And if you give me your love, I'll let it shine up above
And light my way back home to you

'Cause you got gold
Gold inside of you
You got gold
Gold inside of you
Well, I got some
Gold inside me too

You got wheels
Turning inside of you
You got wheels
Turning inside of you
Well, I got wheels
Turning inside me too

You got gold inside of you
