Marina And The Diamonds – Gold lyrics

[Verse 1]
You've got it in the palm of your hands
It's slipping through your fingers like sand
Cause they don't understand who you are
Does't matter long as I am your star, star

[Pre-Chorus]
Yeah I know that I need the gold
But what I love can't be bought or sold

[Chorus 1]
Don't think I want what I used to want
Don't think I need what I used to need
Don't think I want what I used to want
Don't think I see what I used to see

[Verse 2]
I've been waiting, waiting for the penny to drop
I've been working, working to get back what I lost
But whatever happens I'll be okay
Cause fortune's running out of my veins

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm coming for you like a Greek gold rush
Cause girls they wanna, they just wanna have fund$

[Chorus 2]
Don't think I want what I used to want
Don't think I need what I used to need
Don't think I want what I used to want
Don't think I see what I used to see
In El Dorado your gold
To Colorado can't be bought or sold

[Bridge]
Now there's no moral to this story
But I can hear my freedom calling me, calling me

[Chorus 2]

[Alternative Chorus]
I don't care that everybody knows
I'm a million dollars in the hole
I don't care that everybody knows
Baby I don't even want your gold
From El Dorado, your gold
To Colorado can't be bought or sold
Gold Rush
Gold Rush
Free, I am free
