             Nothing Into Gold

                       Lyrics by Dave Hall & Tim Sulka

                       Music by Dave Hall

 

 

           HOW DOES NOTHING BECOME SOMETHING?

           HOW DO CLOUDS BEGIN TO FORM?
           HOW DO CLOUDS TURN INTO RAINDROPS?

           HOW DO RAINDROPS MAKE A STORM?

 

                     MR. MILLER
           HOW DOES NO ONE BECOME SOMEONE?

           HOW DOES A BABY BECOME A LITTLE GIRL?

 

           HOW DOES A GIRL BECOME A WOMAN

           IN AN INSTANT

           FASTER THAN A WHIRL?
 

           I'M COMPLETELY MYSTIFIED

           THOUGH IT'S MAGIC

           I'VE BEEN TOLD

           

                     JANE
           WELL, I'VE TRIED AND I’VE TRIED

           BUT I'M NOT COMPLETELY SOLD

           

           I NEED MORE THAN LUCK ON MY SIDE

           TO TURN NOTHING

 

                     JANE/MR. MILLER

           NOTHING INTO GOLD

           NOTHING INTO GOLD!

           WHAT WAS ONCE ETHEREAL

           CAN IT BECOME MATERIAL?

 

           NOTHING INTO GOLD

           NOTHING INTO GOLD!
           TO TAKE WHAT ISN'T THERE

           PLUCK IT FROM MID-AIR
           MAKE SOMETHING YOU CAN HOLD

           MAKE NOTHING INTO GOLD!

 

                     MR. MILLER
           HOW DOES NOTHING BECOME SOMETHING?

           HOW DOES A CHILD BECOME A YOUTH?

 

                     JANE
           HOW CAN WISDOM COME FROM IGNORANCE?

           HOW DOES FICTION BECOME TRUTH?

 

                     JANE/MR. MILLER

           I'M COMPLETELY MYSTIFIED

           THOUGH IT'S MAGIC, WE'VE BEEN TOLD

           WELL, I'VE (YOU) TRIED AND TRIED

           AND I'M (NOT) COMPLETELY SOLD

           I'LL (YOU'LL NOT) NEED MORE THAN

           LUCK ON MY (YOUR) SIDE

           TO TURN NOTHING

 

           NOTHING INTO GOLD

           NOTHING INTO GOLD!
           WHAT WAS ONCE ETHEREAL

           CAN IT BECOME MATERIAL?

 

           NOTHING INTO GOLD

           NOTHING INTO GOLD!
           TO TAKE WHAT ISN'T THERE

           PLUCK IT FROM MID-AIR
           MAKE SOMETHING YOU CAN HOLD

           MAKE NOTHING INTO GOLD!

 

           GOLD THAT NEVER FADES AWAY

           GOLD THAT HOLDS ITS SHINE

           THERE’S MAGIC IN EACH GOLDEN RAY                            FOREVER YOURS AND MINE

 

                     JANE
           IF ONLY THERE'S SOME WAY

           THAT I CAN FIND

 

                     JANE/MR. MILLER
           TO TURN, TURN, TURN, TURN, TURN

           NOTHING INTO GOLD

           NOTHING INTO GOLD!

 

           WHAT WAS ONCE ETHEREAL

           CAN IT BECOME MATERIAL?

 

           NOTHING INTO GOLD

           NOTHING INTO GOLD!

           TO TAKE WHAT ISN'T THERE

           PLUCK IT FROM MID-AIR

 

           MAKE SOMETHING YOU CAN HOLD

           MAKE NOTHING INTO GOLD!

           GOLD!

           GOLD!
