"Golden Gates" as written by and John Mellencamp....
Ain't no golden gates gonna swing open
Ain't no streets paved in natural pearl
Ain't no angel with a harp come singin'
Leastways not that I know of in this world

In these days of uncertain futures
Who knows what the masters might do
They got their big deals goin' on, goin' on
Got nothing to do with me and you

If I could I'd get us a big suite
Overlooking the park
Only promise I know to be true
Are the promises made from the heart

I don't need to see the whole thing go down
I don't need to see another lonely man
I don't need to see a woman crying for the savior
Holding on to some moneyman's hand

Who can I call to make my reservations
Forever thrown in the dark
The only promises I know to be true
Are the promises made from the heart

I don't believe in the authorities
They ain't gonna take care of me and you
I don't have all the strength that I need
To love the way that I want to

The only promises I know to be true
Are the promises made from the heart
