dust to gold
(rossi/bown/edwards)

we know you're watching over us
the job you took for better or worse
guiding us in from the burning cold
you turn this desert from dust to gold

so i was born to be a beauty king
all rippling muscles with a sun-kissed skin
and getting paid for the shape i'm in
god's gift to women and i knew it then

i loved to sting 'em like a butterfly
i used tequila as a natural high
a real hoot - such a crazy guy
i know they should have hung me out to dry

suddenly the blind man can see
suddenly the force is with me, oh lord
to have, to hold
like dust to gold

you wouldn't ever want to treat with me
i fell faster than a downhill ski
no-one would touch me with a ten-foot pin
'cos there was no telling where i'd been

a multi-national waste of space
by 5 o'clock-ish i'd be off o' my face
without a single little saving grace
and yet you caught me for the human race
thank you

suddenly the blind man can see
suddenly the force is with me, oh lord
to have, to hold
like dust to gold

we know you're watching over us
the job you took for better or worse
guiding us in from the burning cold
you turn this desert from dust to gold

suddenly the blind man can see
suddenly the force is with me, oh lord
to have, to hold
like dust to gold
with me , oh lord
to have , to hold
like dust to gold
