I met you in the spring of one fight,
And the hunger for love and a mouth full of jive,
Id look at you then you'd look away,
When I couldn't think of anything else to say,
You just sound sadder when you tried to sound glad,
I tried to bring it up but it'd make you mad,
It'd make you mad,
But I'd see right through,
Cause all it really made you was all the more blue,

Won't you take this monkey off my back,
I couldn't put forth what I had to hold back,
Then you showed up and you broke the mold,
With a past full of scars and a heart of gold,
A heart of gold,
With your heart of gold,

So the angel she came down to me and filled me with anxiety,
And scuffed my boots and tore my socks,
And filled my pockets up with rocks,
I told her, as she was about to go,
To do take care and rock the show,
She looked at me as she flew away,
She said if you'd a left I might have stayed,

Won't you take this monkey off my back,
I couldn't put forth what I had to hold back,
And you showed up and you broke the mold,
With a past full of scars and a heart of gold,
A heart of gold,
With that heart of gold,

Then I went out and I found a friend,
Who filled my glass and talked of sin,
He said of sin you can't escape,
But when New Year's comes,
It's always belated,
I remember when the world was created,
God's plan was good but his vision was jaded,

Won't you take this monkey off my back,
I couldn't put forth what I had to hold back,
Then you showed up and you broke the mold,
With a past full of scars and a heart of gold,
A heart of gold,
With your heart of gold,

So we proceeded to knock them down,
And quench our thirst round after round,
I woke in the next morning feeling quite a clown,
I shut my mouth moved to the next town,
It didn't get better when I got there,
Cause I was seeing you everywhere,
Sittin' by the window standing by the door,
Just like the town and that town before,

Won't you take this monkey off my back,
I couldn't put forth what I had to hold back,
Then you showed up and you broke the mold,
With a past full of scars and a heart of gold,
A heart of gold,
With that heart of gold,

Like the Ferris wheel,
And the candy man,
We'd lived in cotton candy land,
You wanted picket fences,
And a pink home,
But you knew deep down,
I had the hunger to roam,
And we drank more than sailors on leave,
The sun in my eyes
On New Year's eve
New Year's eve
At the start of one seven
I'd rather keep moving than stopping heaven,
Rather keep on moving than stopping heaven,

Won't you take this monkey off my back,
I couldn't put forth what I had to hold back,
Then you showed up and you broke the mold,
With a past full of scars and a heart of gold,
A heart of gold,
With that heart of gold,

Won't you take this monkey off my back,
I couldn't put forth what I had to hold back,
Then you showed up and you broke the mold,
With a past full of scars and a heart of gold,
A heart of gold,
With your heart of gold,
