Golden Gaze



Through the haze of the smoke in the room
I caught your golden gaze
Knew these were better days

With the rays of the sun through the roof
I caught your golden gaze
Knew these were better days
Your golden gaze

Star spangled shades shade your eyes
But could never hide your golden gaze
Red summer skies bright your smile
And could never hide your golden gaze
Your golden gaze
Your golden gaze
Your golden gaze
Your golden gaze

In the dawn of the morning rain
I caught your golden gaze
Your golden gaze

Through the haze of the smoke in the room
I caught your golden gaze
Knew these were better days
Your golden gaze

Your golden gaze
Your golden gaze

Details:
Golden Gaze draws inspiration from 'Golden Lady' by Stevie Wonder.

'Golden Lady' is to be found on Stevie Wonder's 1973 LP, 'Innervisions'. Ian's presentation of Golden Gaze is this front cover set to words: "It came from a visit to Jamaica, sitting in a straw hut on the beach, with the sun rays pouring through the roof. All I could see was gold."

This is Ian talking about Gettin' High:

Steve's sound is also evident here on Golden Gaze. Compare the following two sound clips; the first is the intro to Golden Gaze, the second is the intro to 'Crazy' by Seal.
