Lyrics

Here we are again
Dancing in the dark
All the flashing lights
Lend me a spark
I wanna know your name
This ain't my style
I wanna take off
And be gone for a while
No steps to retrace
3000 miles
There’s no more room for mistakes

Now I’m banging on your door
Just like four upon the floor
This is happening too soon
Why are we battling the moon?
You are my golden boy, you are my golden boy, you are my golden boy

Now I’m banging on your door
Just like four upon the floor
This is happening too soon
Why are we battling the moon?
You are my golden boy, you are my golden boy, you are my golden boy

I wanna know your name
I’m lost in the dark
There’s no one to blame
It’s always good when it’s dark
Here we go again
Midnight to dawn
I forgot your name
And now everything’s gone
Everything’s gone, everything’s gone
There’s no more room for mistakes

Now I’m banging on your door
Just like four up on the floor
This is happening too soon
Why are we battling the moon?
You are my golden, you are my golden, you are my golden

Now I’m banging on your door
Just like four upon the floor
This is happening too soon
Why are we battling the moon?
You are my golden boy, you are my golden boy, you are my golden boy

Now I’m banging on your door
Just like four upon the floor
This is happening too soon
Why are we battling the moon?
You are my golden boy, you are my golden boy, you are my golden boy
