Stand on up and take a bow
There's something there, and it's showing
There's no need to look around
You're the best we've got going

Shout out to the dreams you'll chase
Shout out to the hearts you'll break
Nothing's gonna stop you now
I guess you better be goin'

You'll never be far, I'm keeping you near
Inside of my heart, you're here
Go on, it's gotta be time
You're starting to shine

'Cause what you got is
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, You're gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, I know
I don't need the stars in the night,
I found my treasure.
All I need is you by my side
So shine forever
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, You're gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, You're gold.

It wont take you long to get
When you feel like you're soarin'
So write it all and don't forget
You gotta tell us your story

Shout out to the friends back home
Shout out to hearts you've known
You gave 'em nothing but the best
Yeah, and you can tell 'em your story

You'll never be far, I'm keeping you near
Inside of my heart, you're here
Go on, it's gotta be time
You're starting to shine

'Cause what you got is
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, You're gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, I know
I don't need the stars in the night,
I've found my treasure.
All I need is you by my side
So shine forever
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, You're gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, You're gold.

'Cause what you got is
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, You're gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, I know
I don't need the stars in the night,
I've found my treasure.
All I need is you by my side
So shine forever
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, You're gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, You're gold.

You're gold
You're gold
You're gold

    Gold to me is about finding the one your supposed to be with. Like their your everything and you dont want anyone else. Their your light. Their your treasure.

    Obviously with adam young being who he is it's hard not to see how god-breathed these lyrics are (reminiscent of "this little light") "so shine forever... " however, with this being an olympic year and me being super excited about it i wonder if he was also inspired by the olympics when writing this:
    "stand up and take a bow-there's something there, and it's showing-there's no need to look around-you're the best we've got-shoutout to the dreams you'll chase-shoutout to the hearts you'll break-nothing's gonna stop you now-i guess you better be going"
