Heart of Gold

We were young, we were strong,
back in '69;
the world, it was yours,
as much as it was mine;

We were free and we could see
through the empty lies
of those who had
no truth in their eyes;

and it went, our freedom went away,
before I could even say
good-bye to you all, and tell you
that I love your heart of gold . . .

Now we work - we are told -
for a pot of gold,
that is waiting where the rainbow's end
will be sold;

(but) I still long - for so long -
for your heart of gold
and remember the disdain
of those who were old;

and I cry that we didn't say good-bye,
but our freedom was no lie;
the lie was to try believing
that compromise would work . . .

Now we're here, in this year
of '89;
the world is not your's
and neither is it mine;

we're not free,
as you can see;
they were empty lies
of those that never had truth in their eyes;

we never said good-bye, as in our hearts we knew
that we would meet again
without searching truth, but believing
in what is promised by Optionality.
