Lose the jewels, there's diamonds in your eyes
Lose the look, your painted-on disguise
Lose the dress, that hides the fairest prize
Lose the time, this time belongs to me
Lose your mind, and let the moments be
Lose your all, you're all I'll ever need.
Chorus:
On the outside a plain brown wrapper
On the inside solid gold
But the insides all that matters
And the outsides just for show.
--- Instrumental ---
Soon the years will surely fade away
Soon the time with lines and shades of gray
Soon the dreams will all be yesterdays
If all that's left is what we're feeling now
All that's changed won't matter anyhow
Rearranged, it's still the same somehow
when the outsides.
Chorus:
On the outside a plain brown wrapper
On the inside solid gold
But the insides all that matters
And the outsides just for show.
Chorus:
On the outside a plain brown wrapper
On the inside solid gold
But the insides all that matters
And the outsides just for show.
So lose the jewels (plain brown wrapper)
There's diamonds in your eyes (plain brown wrapper)
It hides the fairest prize (plain brown wrapper)
Rearranged, it's still the same (plain brown wrapper) all the years
(Plain Brown Wrapper) on the insides solid gold
On the outsides (plain brown wrapper) just for show...
