Watching the hands strike midnight
Reading the writing on the wall
Just in time to chase your dream
You got a chance to make it
You got a chance to take it all
Don't let it slip through your fingers

Runnin', hide'n
Slippin', slide'n
Wastin' time
You been there before

Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity

You got a hometown sweetheart
She's got love that won't stop
She's so satisfied to be right by your side
And if you both believe it
You know you can achieve it all
Don't let it slip through your fingers

Runnin', hide'n
Slippin', slide'n
Wastin' time
I've been there before

Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
Go, go
It's a golden opportunity
