Golden Hour
JVKE Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It was just two lovers
Sittin' in the car, listening to Blonde, fallin' for each other
Pink and orange skies, feelin' super childish, it's no Donald Glover
Missed call from my mother
Like, "Where you at tonight?" Got no alibi

I was all alone with the love of my life
She's got glitter for skin, my radiant beam in the night
I don't need no light to see you

Shine, it's your golden hour (oh)
You slow down time
In your golden hour (oh)

We were just two lovers
Feet up on the dash, drivin' nowhere fast, burnin' through the summer
Radio on blast, make the moment last, she got solar power
Minutes feel like hours
She knew she was the baddest, can you even imagine fallin' like I did?

For the love of my life
She's got glow on her face, a glorious look in her eyes
My angel of light
I was all alone with the love of my life
She's got glitter for skin, my radiant beam in the night
I don't need no light to see you

Shine, It's your golden hour (oh)




You slow down time
In your golden hour (oh)

Overall Meaning

JVKE's "Golden Hour" is a nostalgic reflection on a summer romance that was marked by moments of sheer happiness, exuberance, and closeness. The singer describes himself and his lover as "two lovers sittin' in the car, listening to Blonde, fallin' for each other" and emphasizes the relaxed, carefree nature of their time together with the lines "feet up on the dash, drivin' nowhere fast, burnin' through the summer." Throughout the song, the singer references the golden hour, a term used to describe the time just before sunset when the light has a golden quality that provides a romantic and peaceful ambiance. This is evident in the lines "pink and orange skies, feelin' super childish, it's no Donald Glover/minutes feel like hours" and the chorus which repeats "You slow down time in your golden hour."


The song suggests that the singer's romantic partner has magical qualities, almost angelic. Her "glitter for skin" and "radiant beam in the night" evoke images of a luminous figure that illuminates his life with positivity and love. Similarly, the singer describes her as having a "glorious look in her eyes" and being his "angel of light." The chorus reinforces this idea by comparing his lover to the golden hour, where she "slows down time" and brightens up his life.


Overall, JVKE's "Golden Hour" is a heartwarming and nostalgic representation of a summer love. The singer effectively captures the feelings of warmth and closeness that came from being with his partner, and his admiration and awe for her seems to shine through every lyric.
