Lyrics

[Verse 1]
When you were three, you knew that you could fly
Nothing in the world could hold you down
Nothing but the sun in your eyes
Imagination caught a ride
Tell me all the things you did before
Someone put the fears in your mind

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
When the world starts weighing you down

[Chorus]
Stay golden, keep going
Like a child with a heart that's open
Stay golden, keep hoping
For the ones who let it fade away
Keep going, you're golden
When it's hard and you're losing focus
Dance in the rain, that's all it takes, hey

[Verse 2]
Bet you're closing up and don't know why
Voices in your head will knock you down
Afraid to opеn up and you're so out of it
Overstressеd, couldn't pay your rent
Now your friends are pissed 'cause you made a mess
But I'll show you how
When the world starts weighing you down

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
When the world starts weighing you down

[Chorus]
Stay golden, keep going
Like a child with a heart that's open
Stay golden, keep hoping
For the ones who let it fade away
Keep going, you're golden
When it's hard and you're losing focus
Dance in the rain, that's all it takes, hey

[Bridge]
Don't you cry, don't let 'em break your heart
Just stay golden, you gon' notice
Look inside, don't let 'em dim your style
They gon' notice 'cause you're golden

[Chorus]
Stay golden, keep going
Like a child with a heart that's open (Heart's that's open)
Stay golden, keep hoping
For the ones who let it fade away
Keep going, you're golden
When it's hard and you're losing focus (Focus)
Dance in the rain, that's all it takes, hey (Hey, yeah, yeah)
