"Halo Of Gold" as written by and Alexander Lee Spence....
Have you got a fine place to slip to
When you're feeling down
Have you had a week or two
Just to get your troubles down
Found a lot of life and laughter
With a grandfather in the bowery
She had a body of sixteen or seventeen
She had a mind of forty

I met her on a cold day
In a city far away

With the worlds about zero
And i saw at once,
Into her soul
She's gonna call me her hero

Never like a walk in the rain or the lane
I found a lot of death that day
With the grandfather in the bowery
'Cause i like her like the world

She had a halo of gold
Told me stories of her life and the courage was sublime
Pantomime
I walk the line
Cause you're blind
I walk the line

    General CommentI don't know what this song mean exactly, but I have to say even though I like Skip SPence's original version better I have to say Beck's cover is totally genius, and if it weren't for this song I never would have heard of Skip SPence to begin with.
    As far as what the song means I always felt like it was about following someone you love and hoping they'll notice you and come over to say hi or something. But that's just what I think.
