  • Lyrics
  • The second single from Nation of Two, finds a grieving Vance Joy reminiscing on a failed romance. "I wrote 'Like Gold' after coming off the road at the start of 2016," Joy said. "It started with a simple melody I was humming and the idea of looking back at a relationship."

    "'Nation Of Two' describes a perfectly self-contained couple," Joy added in regard to the album. "Their world beginning and ending at the bed they share, the car they ride in, or any other place where they're together…the idea that their love for each other gives them their bearings; a point of reference that makes sense of life."
