(Like freedom in spring)
She's alone tonight with a bitter cup and
She's undone tonight, she's all used up

She's been staring down the demons
Who've been screaming she's just another so and so,
Another so and so

You are golden, you are golden child
You are golden, don't let go, don't let go tonight

There's a fear that burns like trash inside
And your shame the curse that burns your eyes

You've been hiding in the bedroom
Hoping this isn't how the story has to go
It's not the way it goes, it's your book now

You are golden, you are golden child
You are golden, don't let go, don't let go tonight

You're a lonely soul
In a land of broken hearts
Your far from home
Is a perfect place to start

So this final verse is a contradiction
And the more we learn, the less we know

We've been talking about a feeling,
We both know inside but couldn't find the words
I couldn't write this verse.
I've seldom been so sure
About anything before

Golden, you are golden child
You are Golden, don't let go, don't let go tonight

This world is a dead man down
Every breath is a faded crown we wear,
Like some debilitated king
Don't let go tonight

The earth spins and the world goes round
The green comes from the frozen ground,
And everything will be made new again,
Like freedom in spring,
Hey, like freedom in spring,
Like freedom in spring

    General CommentThis is just a really sweet song. It's fairly simple I think, well the way I interpret it is. Simply about someone who's down and out, depressed and who's self esteem has taken a battering and the singer is telling them that they're 'golden'. I love the way that's put, 'you are golden'. It's just so pure. I can hear this as if it's saying it to me, 'you are golden child', and it is such a comfort. I love how positive it is about everything. Just one of those simple, positive messages that mean so much. John Foreman, don't ever stop writing songs.
