Golden Days

  • I found a pile of Polaroids
    In the crates of a record shop
    They were sexy, sexy looking back
    From a night that time forgot, hmm

    Boy he was something debonair in 1979
    And she had Farrah Fawcett hair
    Carafes of blood red wine, hmm

    In the summertime
    In the summertime

    Oh don't you wonder when the light begins to fade?
    And the clock just makes the colors turn to grey
    Forever younger growing older just the same
    All the memories that we make will never change

    We'll stay drunk, we'll stay tan, let the love remain
    And I swear that I'll always paint you
    Golden days!
    Golden days!
    Golden days!
    Golden days!

    I bet they met some diplomats on Bianca Jagger's new yacht
    With their caviar and dead cigars
    The air was sauna hot, hmm

    I bet they never even thought about
    The glitter dancing on the skin
    The decades might've washed it out
    As the flashes popped like pins, hmm

    In the summertime
    In the summertime

    Oh don't you wonder when the light begins to fade?
    And the clock just makes the colors turn to grey
    Forever younger growing older just the same
    All the memories that we make will never change

    We'll stay drunk, we'll stay tan, let the love remain
    And I swear that I'll always paint you
    Golden days!
    Golden days!
    Golden days!
    Golden days!

    Time can never break your heart
    But It'll take the pain away
    Right now our future's certain
    I won't let it fade away

    Golden days
    Golden days
    Golden days
    Golden days

    Golden days!
    Golden days!
    Golden days!
    Golden days! Writer/s: Brendon Boyd Urie, Jacob S. Sinclair, Samuel Hollander
