  • [Verse 1: Ezra Koenig]
    Something's happening in the country
    And the government’s to blame
    We got married in a gold rush
    And the rush has never felt the same

    [Verse 2: Danielle Haim]
    Shared a moment in a café
    Shared a kiss in pouring rain
    We got married in a gold rush
    And the sight of gold will always bring me pain

    [Chorus: Ezra Koenig & Danielle Haim]
    I don't wanna hear the rumors, please don't say it loud
    I just wanna go out tonight and make my baby proud
    Boy, who’s your baby?
    Girl, if you don't know by now
    There's two seats on the midnight train
    The gold won't weigh us down

    [Verse 3: Ezra Koenig, Danielle Haim & Both]
    Hanging gardens turned to desert
    All that loving turned to hate
    We got married in a gold rush
    And those wedding bells were ringing out our fate

    [Chorus: Ezra Koenig, Danielle Haim & Both]
    I don't wanna hear the rumours, please don't say it loud
    I just wanna go out tonight and make my baby proud
    Boy, who's your baby?
    Girl, if you don't know by now
    There’s two seats on the midnight train
    The gold won’t weigh us down

    [Verse 4: Ezra Koenig, Danielle Haim & Both]
    The rush is on to somewhere else, we're running out of time
    Everything was ours, now it’s just an empty mine
    Animals don't understand the words on the danger sign
    For them, it's just some shade from the morning shine
    I thought you might learn the language
    I thought you might learn to sing
    We were born before the gold rush
    So why can't I remember anything?
    I want to put things back together
    I wanna give, I don’t wanna take
    Time to disavow the gold rush
    And the bitterness that's flourished in its wake

    [Chorus: Ezra Koenig, Danielle Haim & Both]
    I don't wanna hear the rumours, please don't say it loud
    Please don't say it loud
    I just wanna go out tonight and make my baby proud
    Boy, who's your baby?
    Girl, if you don't know by now
    There's two seats on the midnight train
    The gold won't weigh us down
    I don't wanna hear the rumours, please don't say it loud
    Please don't say it loud
    I just wanna go out tonight and make my baby proud
    Boy, who's your baby?
    Girl, if you don't know by now
    There's two seats on the midnight train
    The gold won't weigh us down
