Editors – Black Gold lyrics
[Intro]
(Black gold, black gold
Black gold, black gold)

[Verse 1]
I know you better than you know yourself
You're not a secret or a story to tell
I walk on runways just to know you're safe
Ain't nothing sacred in this hostile place

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't change, don't change
I need you tonight, I need you tonight
Don't change, don't change
We'll take down satellites
Take down satellites
You're not gonna be afraid
Now it's a little late

[Chorus]
Black gold is the colour
The dawn never comes
And we don't answer when you're wrong
Black gold like no other
Did we ever belong?
Just take them on and then we're gone
Black gold is the colour
The dawn never comes
And we can't answer

[Verse 2]
Put your hand up if you're running scared
Choke my engine, it cannot be repaired
Our superheroes, well, where are they now?
Put your foot down till the petrol runs out

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't change, don't change
I need you tonight, I need you tonight
Don't change, don't change
We'll take down satellites
Take down satellites
You're not gonna be afraid
Now it's a little late

[Chorus]
Black gold is the colour
The dawn never comes
And we don't answer when you're wrong
Black gold like no other
Did we ever belong?
Just take them on and then we're gone
Black gold is the colour
The dawn never comes
And we don't answer when you're wrong
Black gold like no other
Did we ever belong?
Just take them on and then we're gone

Black gold is the colour
The dawn never comes
Black gold is the colour
Did we ever belong?

[Outro]
(Black gold, black gold)
Black gold like no other
(Black gold, black gold)
Black gold is the colour
(Black gold, black gold)
Black gold, black gold
