Gregory Porter – Everything You Touch Is Gold


Everything you touch is gold
That is why my soul is shinin’
Feel just like I’m just ten years old
Everything is new and surprisin’

You don’t have to dig too deep
To find out your effect on me
‘Cause everybody that I know can see
And they’re asking me
What is goin’ on in your life? Oh

Everything you touch is gold
That is why my soul is shinin’
Our story is not yet told
Oh girl, I think that you can stop minin’

I don’t have to dig to see
My treasure standin’ right in front of me
Everyone that I know is askin’ me
What is goin’ on in your life? Oh

And it feels like heaven
Touchin’ your hair
But it’s just like heaven
Callin’ your name

But it’s just like heaven
Sittin’ near you
But it’s just like heaven
Somebody’s gonna have to bring me back to ground

Everything you touch is gold
That is why my soul is shinin’
Feel just like I’m ten years old
Everything is new and excitin’

You don’t have to dig too deep
To find out your effect on me
‘Cause everyone that I know in my life
Is asking me, “Is she gonna be your wife?”

Everything you touch is gold
Everything you touch is gold
Everything you touch is gold
Everything you touch is gold

Everything you touch is gold
Needing you here
Touchin’ your hand
Seeing you in the mornin’

I could shine another song
I could write another song
There are a thousand things I could say

If I went there
I could write a thousand songs about you
If I went there
I could write a thousand songs about you

And I will
Gimme the time
Yes, I will
Gimme some time, yeah

And I will
Gimme some time
And I will

Keep it right there
Keep it right there
Don’t you go nowhere

Keep it right there
