Heart Of Gold


I was born with the mark of the devil’s luck
Blessed with a life busted, I’m hurt, I’m torn, I am struck
Yesterday you were just a dream in my bed
A gypsy angel calling to me from beyond the dead

I been told only give your soul to a heart of gold
I believe that a heart and soul are sacred to the love we breed

I’d never doubt about finding you in my fate
I walk this world knowing you could be only steps away
I don’t know when, I guard the hope it ain’t long
You are the part of me that keeps me young and holding on

I been told only give your soul to a heart of gold
I believe that a heart and soul are sacred to the love we breed

You have got a heart of gold
You have got a heart of gold
You have got a heart of gold
You know that I know

SOLO

I been told only give your soul to a heart of gold
I believe that a heart and soul are sacred to the love we breed
You been told only give your soul to a heart of gold
And you believe that a heart and soul are sacred to the love we breed

You have got a heart of gold
You have got a heart of gold
You have got a heart of gold
You know that I know

Sha na na..

“Searching for that someone who completes you more than you could ever possibly be. Your ‘soulmate’ redefined. Composed on a rocky beach in Victoria, BC back in the late ’90s, this is one of the first songs I ever wrote.”
