Black and Gold
Katy Perry Lyrics


The fish swam
Out of the ocean
And grew legs
And they started walking
And the apes climbed down
From the trees
And grew tall
And they started talking

And the stars
Fell out of the sky
And my tears
Rolled into the ocean
Now I'm looking
For a reason why
You even set my world
Into motion

Cause if you're not
Really here
Then the stars
Don't even matter
Now I'm filled
To the top with fear
That it's all
Just a bunch of matter
Cause if you're not
Really here
Then I don't want
To be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold

I looked up
Into the grey sky
And see a thousand eyes
Staring back
And all around
These golden beacons
I see nothing but black

I feel the weight of something
Beyond them
I don't see
What I can feel
If vision
Is the only validation
Then most of my life
Isn't real

Cause if you're not
Really here
Then the stars
Don't even matter
Now I'm filled
To the top with fear
That it's all
Just a bunch of matter
Cause if you're not
Really here
Then I don't want
To be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold

Cause if you're not
Really here
Then the stars
Don't even matter
Now I'm filled
To the top with fear
That it's all
Just a bunch of matter
Cause if you're not
Really here
Then I don't want
To be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold

Mmm

If the fish swam out of the ocean
And grew legs and they started walking
And the apes climbed down from the trees
And grew tall and they started talking
And the stars fell out of the sky
And my tears rolled into the ocean
And now I'm looking for a reason why
You even set my world into motion

'Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't wanna be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

Mmm

'Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't wanna be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold


I look up into the night sky
I see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black
I feel the weight of something beyond them
I don't see what I can feel
If vision is the only validation
Then most of my life isn't real

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That it's all just a bunch of matter
'Cause if you're not really there
Then I don't wanna be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
(Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold, black and gold, black and gold)

Mmm
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

I honestly like this version better than the one Adele did, she put her own spin on it. Sounds like shes having fun with it too. I prefer my covers to have a little original spin to it rather than just being a contest of who can sound the most like the original.
