Bought for a Song

lyrics

it’s not that nothing gold can stay
it’s that it feels so right, you just can’t keep it at bay
she said, “oh, darling, what a mess we’re making,
I’m so in love, so why this hesitation?”

I came here of free will and got bought for a song
the second that the band caught me singing along
with its melody, its energy
somehow, it all belonged

I’m so tired of people getting more than they deserve
or maybe we’re just not deserving anymore
she said, “oh, darling, what a mess we’re making,
you’re so in love, so why this hesitation?”

so, darling, just let me play it like it’s religion
because I can’t control the feeling I’ve been given

it’s not that nothing gold can stay
it’s that it feels so right, you just have to laugh and say,
“oh, darling, what a mess we’re making,
in this love it’s all just hesitation.
oh, darling, what a mess we’re making,
we’re so in love, so why this hesitation?”
