Lyrics

Katy Perry's version

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
But 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 A Way 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
But 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

Sam Sparro's version

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 the 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 the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
But 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 look up into the night sky
And see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black

I feel a way 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
But 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 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, 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
But 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, black and gold, black and gold
Black and gold, black and gold
