Now if all my golden moments
Could be rolled into one
They would shine just like the sun
For a Summer day
And after it was over
We could have it back again
With credit to the editor
For striking out the rain (very clean)
And all it really needed
Was the proper point of view

No one's gonna bring me down
No one's gonna stop me now

Now I gathered up my sorrows
And I sold them all for gold
And I gathered up the gold
And I threw it all away
It all went for a good time and a song (come on)
The laughter was like music
It did float my soul along for awhile
And all it really needed was the proper point of view

No one's gonna reach me here
No one's gonna know I'm gone

You may think I might be crazy
And I guess you might be right
But I know the way I feel today is out of sight
I do not trust your senses to remember your name
Without corrective lenses
Things are never twice the same anyway
And all it really needed
Was the proper point of view

No one's gonna bring me down
No one's gonna stop me now
No one's gonna reach me here
No one's gonna know I'm gone

    General Comment:This song meant a lot to me coming into adulthood. It served to remind me that my most cherished times were being somewhat carefree and having fun rather than being anxious or depressed. It's about having a healthy outlook on life.

    It also reminds me of those times and places, like after six form lectures on a sunny day, driving down to a local abandoned chalk quarry to go for a swim with my mates or lie about in meadows of long grass enjoying the sun and truly relaxing. Something about the combination of those last two repeated major 9th chords puts me right back there.

    I love his follow up to this on the next album, Secret O' Life.
