"Golden Street" as written by and Benjamin Heyward Allen Kate Earl....
people keep saying that i'm a little short on mercy
say my god forsaken soul will buy me things
fame and fortune pearly gates and silver wings
yeah i picked out curtains for my place on golden street

people been calling me sinner
been calling me wayward saint
caught a snag along the path that they call straight
looked down and i saw that i had lost my faith
turned my back on promises i'd never break

these days i'm just trying to find out what love means
find my place within this crazy scene
these days i'm just trying to find out what love means
find my place within this dream

people been saying i'm going to hell if i don't change
but i sold my soul to god when i was barely eight
all of jacob's ladders couldn't rescue me
all because i bought that house on golden street

built a bridge between our hearts but it was weak
little did i know it wouldn't hold my weight
now i'm falling fast into a great ravine
wonder when i land if i'll be on my feet

these days i'm just trying to find out what love means
find my place within this crazy scene
these days i'm just trying to find out what love means
find my place within this dream

can you spare me father
a moment of your time
why’d you hide the answers
in, in between the lines
life has many colors
more than black and white
why do i have questions
if you’re always right

these days i'm just trying to find out what love means
find my place within this crazy scene
these days i'm just trying to find out what love means
find my place within this dream
