Mika – We Are Golden lyrics

Teenage dreams in a teenage circus
Running around like a clown on purpose
Who gives a damn about the family you come from?
No giving up when you're young and you want some

Running around again
Running for running

Waking up
In the midday sun
What's to live for?
You could see what I've done
Staring at emotion
In the light of day
I was running
From the things that you'd say

We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden.
We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden.

Teenage dreams in a teenage circus
Running around like a clown on purpose
Who gives a damn about the family you come from?
No giving up when you're young and you want some

Running around again
Running for running
Running around again
Running for running

I was a boy
At an open door
Why you staring
Do you still think that you know?
Looking for treasure
In the things that you threw
Like a magpie
I live for glitter, not you

We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden.
We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden.

Teenage dreams in a teenage circus
Running around like a clown on purpose
Who gives a damn about the family you come from
No giving up when you're young and you want some

Now I'm sitting alone
I'm finally looking around
Left here on my own
I'm gonna hurt myself
Maybe losing my mind
I'm still wondering why
Had to let the world let it bleed dry

We are not what you think we are
We are not what you think we are
We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden

Teenage dreams in a teenage circus
Running around like a clown on purpose
Who gives a damn about the family you come from
No giving up when you're young and you want some

Running around again
Running for running
Running around again
Running for running

We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden.

    Aparently I can't find myself, bit it doesn't means that I'm afraid to go out and try it over and over again, my most fear is socialize, it can sound ridicules bit I don't care, anyway I trying so hard to be happy, and I hope to wake up some day so I can say I'm golden.
    Because it's for that life is about to find yourself and tell people you worth, you deserve it, cause you're someone.
    I'm. I'm golden. Thanks.

    To me this song is almost parallel to how I entered my new high school after going to small private school, where everyone is family to each other, and we all totally know each other. I had some friends at the new school already who were somewhat popular, including my sister who is only a year ahead of me. Everyone thinks they know who I am and so they expect so many things from me. Things I couldn't always do. I started to become a mix of the people they thought I should be like. I couldn't handle the constant pressure. I started to hurt myself in ways no one would see. Luckily I heard this song before I ever did anything serious. :) I don't need to please people so early in life, especially not based off a reputation built by anyone but me. I'm young enough that I can do anything I'm interested in and I don't need to worry about what other people think of me. I can goof off. I can try crazy things. I am my own, beautiful person. I am golden. And so is mika, and everyone who has ever felt the same.

    I got bullied in School quite for a Long time, because I'm overweight and everybody was making fun of me. Also the "cool Kids", like all those Fashion b*****s made fun of me and my friends, because we weren't that cool and didn't go to parties. I listened to this song so often, because for me it says that you are better than People like that, they don't know anything about your passions or your interests, nothing about what makes you the Person you really are. I just kept thinking that I'm hiding my interests in my personality, so I have it for my own. And my passions gave me strength and power to let all those b*****s talking and I didn't care about them. Of course this didn't work all the time, but I felt so much better with this thoughts. You think I suck? You think my friends and me are pieces of s**t? We are not what you think we are, we are golden!
