    It's basically a break up song. He thought he had found a heart of Gold but it was not. He is not giving up. He recognizes that part of the problem is that he holds back his feelings, so doesn't share his heart of Gold. As is often with a break up there is the feeling that we are too old to start over. A relationship that took years to build is now over. But he is not giving up is the consistent message. He will never give up and he is explaining why he will never give up. It is difficult to figure out the cause of a failed relationship. That's the fine line reference after internal contemplation (my mind).

    these were the times were neil young in being a searcher and a explorer in the goldmine of his own mind to find that purness of somekind of truth to live up to in shareing the find with someone. ''it's these expressions I never give'' - anotherwords I guess that he wants to live and give to what he feels, but for now he is having a difficult time to commit to anything in being grounded, it is out of his reach in reality 'cause he is not standing still on the journey, he seeks in hope of the ''yearning'' that is upahead in his travels to find a heart of gold. I feel that he wants to be caught in the experience of the love object to commit, or vice versa in being saved by the'' heart of gold'' that can be a metaphor for ''the saviour'' to save him as he is getting a little older.

    This song is mainly talking about searching for fulfillment. He describes how he been to Hollywood and Rockwood but never found the meaning of his existence.
