Analysis of " Golden Keys"

Golden; hiding the key
stored away from pain
containing all of me
Protection is what I need
 My dreams will not be in vain

Golden; showing the good
hidden away, is darkness
an explosion of self destruction
My dreams will not be in vain

Hoping for a chance
to show the  light
shining so bright.....
hidden behind shadows
unable to shine through
unable to resurface

I try my chain
No keys fit
I needed protection....
from myself

I gave my "Key" to you
Ever since then
I knew......
                            DREAMS ARE NEVER IN VAIN.
