Katy Perry – Black and Gold Song Lyrics

About Katy Perry: Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (born October 25, 1984), known professionally as Katy Perry, is an American singer, songwriter, and television judge. After singing in church during her childhood, she pursued a career in gospel music as a teenager. Perry signed with Red Hill Records and released her debut studio album Katy Hudson under her birth name in 2001, which was commercially unsuccessful. She moved to Los Angeles the following year to venture into secular music after Red Hill ceased operations and she subsequently began working with producers Glen Ballard, Dr. Luke, and Max Martin. After adopting the stage name Katy Perry and being dropped by The Island Def Jam Music Group and Columbia Records, she signed a recording contract with Capitol Records in April 2007.

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 look 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
