Hey, Golden Boy
Don't let the darkness in to
Take you away from yourself
Nobody else
There's nobody left to make you run
Somebody new
Maybe it's you
Only bereft of meeting
One of these days
You're gonna wake up wondering
How it went down
Then in a daze
You're gonna make up something
And wallow around in your room
Maybe it's soon
Maybe it won't be for some time
I hope you'll be
Thinking of me
And I hope you won't be lonely

[Chorus]
Hang your head
But don't let your hair fall out
Just hang your hat
At somebody else's house

Game, set, and match
I have to give that to you
You are the man
But wait, there's a catch
Everyone sees right through you
But that was the plan all along
'Cause tell me I'm wrong
Tell me you wanted something else
Went to the cone
That made you explode
Now I hope you won't be lonely any more

[Chorus]

No, no, no, you're not a quitter
So don't, don't, don't, don't you be bitter
Go, go, go where you'll glitter
Away

[Chorus: x2]

Somebody else's house
Somebody else's house
