The real gold of this land, Is not found in the earth
It’s in every woman and man, deep in their souls since their birth
I’ve been talking to the spirit, He says it’s time for revolution
And even if you can’t hear it , You know that Love is the solution
We’re all a part of one family, With one Father up above
One day if we all agree on that, Think of all the good that will come
You say it’s my youthful exuberance , That makes my heart a little deranged
That I’m just a dumb enough kid to think that the world just might change
‘Cause I know love
Love’s the solution
Love
Love’s the solution

Look at you just standing there
Your gorgeous self it ain’t fair
I've been trying to rectify
This burnin' feelin' I cannot hide

I just want to kiss you
Can't get the urge out of my mind
I just want to kiss you
Enter a place where there's no time

Linked up fingers and twisted knees
Close enough I can feel you breathe
I know this moment won't be complete
Until we do what we came here to do
So baby let me kiss you

Now you're givin' me the eye
And movin' that body to my side
Good Lord the things she's sayin'
She keeps me guessin', I ain't complainin' 
I just want to kiss you
Can't get the urge out of my mind
I just want to kiss you
Enter a place where there's no time
Linked up fingers and twisted knees
Close enough I can feel you breathe
I know this moment won't be complete
Until we do what we came here to do
So baby let me kiss you

Well my baby’s lookin' alright,
that dress it fits her real fine
And I’m about to loose control
Her hips are talking to me,
like x-rays they shoot through me
And we gon’ get in some trouble
Heart is thumping like the bass now
Every time I see her move her feet
Might as well alert the whole damn town now
Cause you and me gon’ be dancing on the street
 
So come on let’s step out outside,
there’s a beautiful world here to find
And it was made for You and me girl

So baby let’s let the starlight
Illuminate our love tonight
Let’s do what we were made for
Heart is thumping like the bass now
Every time I see you move you feet
Might as well alert the whole damn town now
Cause you and me gon’ be dancing on the street
Do what, Do what

There you were suddenly in my sight
And I knew that everything changed tonight

We were there huddled under the snow
I looked at you and everything was slow
There was a bang in my chest
It was the start of everything
That I knew I had ever wanted
Baby I know you and I are not perfect souls
Even when we fail, together we come pretty close
Oh, we still have room to grow
Each day with you is a seismic symphony
Violently trembling with possibility
Like volcanoes in the sea
And we dance so close
And we begin to understand
The rhythm that is each other  
Oh and Baby I know, you and I are not perfect souls
But even when we fail, together we come pretty close
Oh, We still have room to grow
Oh and Baby I know that I may sound a bit absurd
When I say all that I have I give including these few words
All, my love is yours
Now here we are standing under that light
And I know that everything is right
Oh tonight
Oh cause Baby I know you and I are not perfect souls
But even when we fail, together we come pretty close
Oh, we still have room to grow
Oh and Baby I know that I may sound a bit absurd
When I say all that I have I give including these few words
All, My Love is yours

And throughout the hands of time
It has been held up in grandeur
Sultans, queens and the divine
Have sought it out for their own splendor
Oh Lord I need
That funky love
And I don't want that
That puppy love
But when your eyes
Meet my eyes
It's no surprise
That we got
Solid Gold, Baby
It's wonderful there is no doubt
Solid Gold, Baby
And you know what I'm talkin' 'bout

That Solid Gold
Girl you must be Cleopatra
'Cause you know that I am ready
To give the riches of Rome to ya
For your heart there's not too many
Cause when your eyes
They meet my eyes
It's no surprise
That we got
 

Solid Gold, Baby
It's wonderful there is no doubt
Solid Gold, Baby
And you know what Im talkin' 'bout
That Solid Gold
And I said yo fellas
YEAH?
What kinda love you want?
SOLID GOLD!
And I said yo ladies
YEAH?
What kind of love you want?
SOLID GOLD!
And I said yo people!
YEAH?
What kind of love you want?
SOLID GOLD!
Everybody! What kind of love you need? 
This is solid gold
Solid Gold, Baby
It's wonderful there is no doubt
Solid Gold, Baby
And you know what Im talkin' 'bout
That Solid Gold

I’ve got a burning fever
Started in my soul
In a world of smoke and mirrors
You are something whole
But am I out of my mind thinking I could
Is it alright to feel this way
If I give it time I will find there is still good
But I’m scared I can’t wait
Cause I’ve been losing my faith
 
I’ve got a resolution
To get back to the truth
But I lack the constitution
For finding my way through
Am I out of my mind thinking I could
Is it alright to feel this way
If I give it time I will find there is still good
But I’m scared I can’t wait
Cause I’ve been losing my faith
Faith

OH MY (WHAT WILL BE?)

I said I want it, I take it
I grab it, to have it
Slip through my fingers like the sand of the earth
Standing in what people believe
I’ve been crying every day
but my tears dry in the desert of people's faith

Somebody please explain it to me
Cause I know it ain’t real
She don’t need to grab it but she has got to feel
I know it ain't time
She has got to know this before she’s lost her mind
 
 
 
 
I said my heart is an ocean I’m tossed to and fro in
Hopin' that I would reach the other side
I’m a ship lost out at sea

And I’ve been waiting for the day when stupid men won’t get in our way
You can’t feed me shit and tell me it is steak
Cause I know it ain’t real
(It ain't real nah)

She don’t need to grab it but she has got to feel
I know it ain’t time
(It ain't time, nah)

She has got to know this before she’s lost her mind
She's got to feel this oh me
Oh my what will be

Everyday, tryin' to find my way out
Where do I begin, and when, much to my chagrin
I’m about to fray now
I just want, some clarity, cause it’s too noisy, help me
To find my escape from these endless waves of worry
To clear my head now
Then I listen to the birds sing
I listen to the birds sing
I listen to the birds sing
I listen to the birds sing
Everyday, I’m on the run
What do I do now, I’m down and how, I still hear that sound
Oh this web that I’ve spun
And I’m trying to breathe but the air around me seems to fade away
And I’m looking out, the horizon’s doubt, I shout
To clear my, to clear my, to clear my head now
 
 
Then I listen to the birds sing
I listen to the birds sing
I listen to the birds sing
I listen to the birds sing
And I got to get away
I got to fly away
You gon' see me on that day

So I  
So I listen to the birds sing
I listen to the birds sing
I listen to the birds sing
I listen to the birds sing

You say I'm living life in dreams
This life ain’t more than what it seems
Well I may be a witless fool
Just dumb enough to think that hope might breakthrough
We gonna touch the sky
Brothers and sisters why don’t you gather round
We were made for glory days
But we chose to let them slip away
There’s a way for us to reach our heights
But until then for love we fight
We gonna touch the sky
Brothers and sisters why don’t you gather round
We gonna touch the sky
Ain’t nothin’ going to bring us down
No matter what runs in your blood
You know we all came from the mud
The sooner that we all agree
The sooner we can find our peace
We gonna touch the sky
Brothers and sisters why don’t you gather round
We gonna touch the sky
Ain’t nothin’ going to bring us down
