Charted: 40
  • Gleaming
    Twinkling
    Eyes like sinking ships
    On waters so inviting
    I almost jump in

    But I don't like a gold rush, gold rush
    I don't like anticipating my face in a red flush
    I don't like that anyone would die to feel your touch
    Everybody wants you
    Everybody wonders what it would be like to love you
    Walk past, quick brush
    I don't like slow motion double vision in rose blush
    I don't like that falling feels like flying 'til the bone crush
    Everybody wants you
    But I don't like a gold rush

    What must it be like
    To grow up that beautiful?
    With your hair falling into place like dominos
    I see me padding 'cross your wooden floors
    With my Eagles t-shirt hanging from the door
    At dinner parties
    I call you out on your contrarian shit
    And the coastal town
    We wandered 'round had never
    Seen a love as pure as it
    And then it fades into the gray of my day old tea
    'Cause you know it could never be

    'Cause I don't like a gold rush, gold rush
    I don't like anticipating my face in a red flush
    I don't like that anyone would die to feel your touch
    Everybody wants you
    Everybody wonders what it would be like to love you
    Walk past, quick brush
    I don't like slow motion double vision in rose blush
    I don't like that falling feels like flying 'til the bone crush
    Everybody wants you
    But I don't like a gold rush

    What must it be like
    To grow up that beautiful?
    With your hair falling into place like dominoes
    My mind turns your life into folklore
    I can't dare to dream about you anymore
    At dinner parties
    Won't call you out on your contrarian shit
    And the coastal town
    We never found will never
    See a love as pure as it
    'Cause it fades into the gray of my day old tea
    'Cause it will never be
    Gleaming
    Twinkling
    Eyes like sinking ships
    On waters so inviting
    I almost jump in Writer/s: Jack Michael Antonoff, Taylor A. Swift
