I want to live,
I want to give
I've been a miner
For a heart of gold.
It's these expressions
I never give
That keep me searching
For a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.
Keeps me searching
For a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.

I've been to Hollywood
I've been to Redwood
I crossed the ocean
For a heart of gold
I've been in my mind,
It's such a fine line
That keeps me searching
For a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.
Keeps me searching
For a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.

Keep me searching
For a heart of gold
You keep me searching
For a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.
I've been a miner
For a heart of gold.

    Love is the reason for being alive,
    and it is the heart of gold for which we strive,
    lifetime after lifetime, might as well get it right this time!

    In the mind we seek love, we seek it in the outer world, but a heart of gold can only be found within. It cannot be found in the earth, it is found within ourselves.

    This song reminds me of my futile, lifelong search, for someone to share my meager existence with. I'm seventy years, now. And still no heart of gold.
