Perry, Katy - Black And Gold 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 wanna 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 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
That is all just a bunch of matter

'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

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That is all just a bunch of matter

'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

Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold

Perry, Katy Black And Gold Comments
  1. Jeff Rush

    This is bad!

  2. Jason Scott Smathers

    anything below 120 bpm is actually harmful to your health. Leads to death. Country folks have and data to support this?

  3. ASMR Cats

    Damn, she butchered it pretty quickly. At least the song died a fast death.

  4. олег семенов

    The best cover of this song 😍😍

  5. Jessica Wyatt

    I wish she did more songs like this . Still love her though🌟🤘❤️

  6. I don't give a fuck!!!!!

    Great song & cover!

  7. sean clerkin

    a beautiful song ruined by a self -confessed hollywood satanist..gotta luv murica....

  8. JustMeGeorgie !

    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 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
    That it's all just a bunch of matter

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

    Mmm
    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
    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)
    Mmm (black and gold, black and gold, black and gold)
    Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold, oh oh

    '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
    I don't want to be either
    I wanna be next to you
    Black and gold, black and gold, black and Gold!

    Katy,

    Hey, what's going on? Not much here! Just passing the time at the cafe. How was your day? Mine, was ok alittle slow nothing much to talk about really. I'll tell ya that Israeli election was tight! Your probably not into politics being a giant rock star. Maybe, though! You are pretty smart and witty. I've seen your interviews very charming and handsome for a tall girl! Anyway, just stopping by to say hello and tell ya someone's thinking of you. Hope you had a nice day. Have a lovely evening! Sweetdreams. Sleep well. Goodnight...

    Love,
    A Secret Admirer

  14. saya saya

  15. MiloPepe Hairdesign

    Superba.

  16. Matty K 414

    She's insane in concert, if you ever get the chance...

  17. Danielle Gordon

    Before I heard this I thought she was completely autotuned, that was back in 09 when I was 19 it kinda grew me up to make up my own mind about songs but shh blew me away & the lyrics to this song will forever be one of my top love songs, could you imagine having someone sing this about you

  18. Selyna Bogino

    Favourite version after Brenna Whitaker's one. But I believe she took some ispiration from Katy's on this one.

  19. Brandon L

    Obsessed with this. Love you Katy ❤️😍

  20. Felipe Piña

    Hurts my ears.

  21. WillsATMOsphere

  40. saya saya

  41. Michael G

  42. Daryl Reinne

    how did she change her outfit that quick? 😂

  43. Petr Šimon

    yesssssssss i love katy

  44. LastTram 90

    She's got ugly profile

  45. Danny Perry

    QUEEEEEEN! 💗👑

  46. Temi Kadine

    Not even a Katy Perry fan but this is legit.

  47. Yasodia Delgado

    I Love You KT <3

  48. Relya Voy

    I have the feeling her voice back then was way more powerful and she didn't feel under pressure showing off her beautiful voice. She slayed some latest performances though. I loved her performance of Dark Horse at Harpars Bazar 2015.

  49. drabnail777

    This song with lyrics require deep voices and heavy bass to get that kinda classy feel to it this is too high pitch and that acoustic guitar is just no.

  50. JHNNtube

    i msis this era of Katy Perry soo much...

    Relya Voy

    me too :/

  51. biancarap

    Brenna Withaker version beats EVERY cover!!!! Go check it out!

  54. MassDynamic

  55. Donald D

    It's nice to see n hear black n gold? It works ;) great work (;

  56. Zephyrus0127

    Really didn't want to like that, but I did... Sam Sparrow though...

  57. Zoltán Imreh

    nyaf-nyaf....

  58. Nicholas Didio

    Katy's news on her new album coming most likely in 2016 is that she plans to "reinvent herself". Hopefully she will move on to this kind of music that she was CLEARLY MEANT to sing. She is absolutely amazing in the acoustic and this sorta soft jazzy pop genres. Don't get me wrong,I LOVE pop Katy, but this is the kind of music that will really shut all the haters up bc bae can SING. End of story. #queen

    Isaac Navarro

    I agree that Katy definitely sounds really amazing in this type of music but I don't know if it's the genre she's meant to be in. We haven't really seen a whole lot of Katy in this style aside from when the whole I kissed a girl thing happened and she sang in a lower register than she does now. I'm a katycat and just ughh. I don't know I just really hope whatever happens happens 😁😁

    rafik germany

    Xe Are In 2017 And We Didnt Get It Yet

    Relya Voy

    @rafik germany I think it's coming in May. We won't get the singer/songwriter Katy, but definitely a more mature Katy. Witness is a song that will stand out.

    rafik germany

    WITNESS wil Be My Song oF 2017 And Its Legendary Lovers 2.0

    Relya Voy

    OMG you know it already! I was feeling the same, Legendary Lovers 2.0! I was so obsessed with Legendary Lovers, I still am. And Witness is just stunning..I loved Katy for her One Of The Boys album and wasn't a big fan of Teenage Dream (instead of a few songs), but with Witness..god it's so so good. Legendary Lovers mixed with I'm Still Breathing in a modern way.

  59. martina de santis

    i love her amazing voice😍
    is so cute and sweet but is perfect for katy😍😍😍

  60. Andrea kobe

    she should move on this music

  61. Rebecca Lousin

    This sucked. In comparison to sparrow, she RUINED this song!

    Edwin Nunez

    Go jump off a star.

  62. Dominick Kasza

    This is a great example that the right lyrics, and melody can make all the difference in a song. This was a perfect cover for Katy to do; it allowed her vocal ability to shine brightly. This was amazing!

    Dontay Staples

    out of all the cover i like hers the best. ellie goulding, adele, and others just dont do it for me like sam sparro and katy perry

    PeezaPizza

    Dominick Kasza You should watch the youtube channel Saara on her video, house tour (I'm extremely rich), she sings a part of this song and it sounds like heaven.😇😍😢👌👍👏

  63. Thaís Braga

    Creio que esta é a melhor versão (cover) desta canção, pois Katy não precisou GRITAR em momento algum para justificar uma boa interpretação.

  64. gc nj

    Kathy Perry ....sound better at my mind wt same song

  65. Eduardo Arce

    She is singing very good, but, honestly, I prefer the Sam Sparro's original version

    TheMasterMaggwheels s

    Yeah true

    DrTomoculus

    I think it's because he left that melody very simple, with little inflections. It's a very direct vocal, which lets you concentrate on what he's saying, rather than how he's saying it. I found with this version, her inflections and "flutterings" only distracted me from the melody, and the words didn't have as much weight. She sings it nice, but it's like listening to a bumblebee going from flower to flower.

  66. Jesse Weiman

    Great cover I truly love your singing! Fantastic look and sound! If you have time check out my Taylor swift Wildest Dream cover I did! We got to shoot it with a Swat team!

  67. Darude Sandstorm

    song name?

    S Hudson

    +Darude Sandstorm black and gold

  68. Scott Goulet

    This is actually not too bad. Well done.

  69. Dieanah Williams

    I see why everyone loves katey perry. I fall in love with her vocals here.

  70. TheGodParticle

    Not as good, sorry

  71. Francesco Puccini

    Her singing is so good here!

  72. Gonzalo Escalante

    1:54 amazing note.

  73. bondquartetfan

    Katy did a great job, these ugly hipsters in the comment section can go shove it.

  74. BlockShoe

    Fifa 09!

  75. Chocoholic Princess

    Loooool I'm doing this at school dreading it but this made it slightly more better

  76. Tiernan Baker

    Shit cover

  77. Klaus Geltl

    Listening to it again, loving it again ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  78. MRrandomdude42

    To day is the 4th of march 2015. I wish to to preserve  this day, for on this day, Katy with her beautiful voice helped me deal with some of the most emotional turmoil I´ve gone through in a long time. 

  79. Hellkitten

    Hmm.. no. Not feeling it at all. Sam's is so much better.

  80. Jeff K

    Better than the original.  

    Kathy Avalos

    Oh, yes.

  81. MacSpray

    She looks like Dorothy from Wizard of Oz maybe if she taps her red shoes together she will magically sound good without digitally enhanced studio equipment 

  82. Regina Mills

    i always thought she was terrible but she actually sounds so good here! 

    katyswift1233

    ikr, same here

    Daniel Oloyede

    @Cersei Lannister I know what you mean I don't rate Katy as an incredible vocalist but I can cope with her voice here

    orangegrape

    @Cersei Lannister SHAME!

    Matter?

    U can cope? lol i wish i can show you all of her outstanding performances... maybe start with brick by brick?

  86. Mami Chula

    Adele sang this better...

    Klaus Geltl

    Absolutely NOT

  87. Allen Costello

    She killed electric feel but I dunno about dizzz shizzz

  88. Moises Salvador Osorio González

    sinceramente adele contará esta canción mejor que Katy, pero si la escuchan, la canta sin sentimiento, en cambio katy perry transmite el sentimiento!

    Nicko Troncoso

    NO! Adele no la interpreta mejor!

  89. 1960gal

    Vicky Pattison - Geordie Shore!

  90. 1960gal

    I really like this version. Strangly. Considering I can't stand this bird, or her prat of an Ex (RB)

  91. Anahí TheKatyCat

    She is so talented,I loved the cover..

  92. Sergey Titarenko

    bad cover...

  93. Dyodoleu

    let me tell you something y'all already know: people hating on her only hate because it's katy LOL. She could've done absolutely perfect and i dunno what and people would still say it is shit because they're that mad, come on
