Band Of Gold

This song is by Greg Brown and appears on the album Down in There (1990).

This band of gold never meant much to me
A link in the chain that the world wants to see
A part of the show that the world asks you for
You can do what you want behind any closed door

This band of gold slips off easily
But there's a mark underneath it anybody can see
The sun and the wind, the years and the days
Made that mark a part of me and it won't go away

And just like that mark there's a part of my heart
Your love protects from the storm
And there I can be a child who's free
Though my body is weary and worn

And that band of gold is as big as the sky
No ocean is wider-no mountain as high
It's as soft as your kiss is and as warm as our bed
And with that band of gold every day I thee wed
