"The Gold It's in the..." as written by and David Gilmour Roger Waters....
Come on, my friends,
Let's make for the hills.
They say there's gold but I'm looking for thrills.
You can get your hands on whatever we find,
Because I'm only coming along for the ride.

Well, you go your way,
I'll go mine.
I don't care if we get there on time.
Everybody's searching for something, they say.
I'll get my kicks on the way.
Over the mountains, across the seas
Who knows what will be waiting for me?
I could sail forever to strange sounding names.
Faces of people and places don't change.

All I have to do is just close my eyes
To see the seagulls wheeling on those far distant skies.
All I want to tell you, all I want to say
Is count me in on the journey.
Don't expect me to stay.

    General CommentI totally love this song. It's like, Pink Floyd does the Steve Miller Band or something.

    And I love La Vallee. If it didn't have a totally anticlimatic ending, I'm sure that I would be able to find it in non-bootleg form.

    General Commentthe narrator is looking for adventure and excitement "i'm lookin for thrills" and he isnt worried about getting things or becoming something "cause ive only come along for the ride". This is about a feeling of going places and seeing faces. It's about the journey and not the destination. It's all there in the lyrics.

    I LOVE this song! It's about people trying to find gold everywhere they possibly can. The lyrics just give me goosebumps.

    General CommentI was just kind of thinking about this and I believe sort of that gold is used figuratively... like just going along with life and finding your own gold, as in whatever makes you happy.

    vida está buena, por el momento.
    meta sonrisa aquí.
