Years ago, and so luckily, there was a little gold spark that came to me
Oh it shined so bright, and it danced around, so that I'd rub my eyes just to believe I'd found-
I tucked it in my pocket then, so the little gold spark could be my friend
I fanned it air, and then I held it tight, so my little gold spark could stay alive

{Chorus 1}
My eyes are wide, happy days
Little gold spark come lead the way
My saving grace, my favorite thing
Little gold spark so interesting

Nine to fives and the dreary days, and the overcast sky, and there's bills to pay
But my mind's ajar, and the door's askew
And a little bright hope comes jumping through
I hoped that it would be the same, but my little gold spark was a roaring flame
The crackling blaze was so beautiful
And the sky had cleared, and we ignored the world

{Chorus 2}

My back is perked, my ears are primed
Little gold spark, come blow my mind
My wild card, my skeleton key
Little gold spark, come dance with me

As the grind went on, and the years passed by
Had my little gold spark burned up and died?
Had it fizzled out while I looked away
And the dull machinery ruled my days
I ran back home and I cried its name
And saw the little gold spark by the window pane
It bounded in and I hugged my friend
And my little gold spark was shining bright again

{Chorus 1}
{Chorus 2}
{Chorus 1}
