Years & Years – Gold lyrics

[Verse 1]
Am I defined, oh, by the way they look at me?
Will I be tried?
Oh, will they take what I believe?

[Pre-Chorus]
I shiver on a one, I breathe for two
I give you what you want
I bend the truth
And everything's aflame, it's all aglow
I know that I can play that game

[Chorus]
I'll fool them all
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, like gold)
Let it lead me astray
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, like gold)
Let it take me away
And if I turn my back and I leave it all
And I'll be running fast, 'cause I can't be owned
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, like gold

[Verse 2]
Do I belong?
Oh, I see it start to fade
Teach them a song, oh
Now I feel I've been betrayed

[Pre-Chorus]
I shiver on a one, I breathe for two
I give you what you want
I bend the truth
And everything's aflame, it's all aglow
I know that I can play that game

[Chorus]
I'll fool them all
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, like gold)
Let it lead me astray
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, like gold)
Let it take me away
And if I turn my back and I leave it all
And I'll be running fast, 'cause I can't be owned
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, like gold

[Bridge]
Everything is brighter now
It shimmers like a stone
And everything surrounds you now
It's you and you alone

[Chorus]
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, like gold
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, like gold
And if I turn my back and I leave it all
And I'll be running fast, 'cause I can't be owned
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, like gold

[Outro]
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, like gold)
I'm gonna be the one who sets it all alight
And I'm gonna be the one who sets it all alight
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, like gold)
And I'm gonna be the one who sets it all alight
And I'm gonna be the one who sets it all alight
