This could be the song
Everyone relates to
A another melody,
Something we go through

These could be the words
To use in good fortune
To keep in the back of mind
For your back up plan

It's the beat
That keeps you marching on
So take your chance,
I've got armor on

Reasons will reveal itself
In due time
So for luck,
Will you cross your fingers?

You and I, girl,
We've got something golden
Did you know,
They say it never lasts
And oh-woah
We've got something golden
We can't, can't break
Everyone, everyones wrong
Everyone, everyones wrong

This could be the first,
Always reminding you
Of your battle scars
All your could have been's
Only I know what I've been through
But for luck I still cross my fingers

You and I, girl,
We've got something golden
Did you know,
They say it never lasts
And oh-woah
We've got something golden
We can't, can't break
Everyone, everyones wrong
Everyone, everyones wrong
Everyones wrong

I could have used this
Long ago
Yeah, took my own advice
I could have used this
Long ago
Should have crossed my fingers

You and I, girl,
We've got something golden
Did you know,
They say it never lasts
And oh-woah
We've got something golden
We can't, can't break
Everyone, everyones wrong

You and I, girl,
We've got something golden
Did you know,
They say it never lasts
And oh-woah
We've got something golden
We can't, can't break
Everyone, everyones wrong
We can't, can't break
Everyone, everyones wrong
Everyone, everyones wrong
Everyones wrong

So cross your fingers

    General CommentOH MY GOSH I'VE NEVER BEEN THE FIRST PERSON TO COMMENT A SONG BEFORE!!!!
    ok, i'll just calm myself... try and be cool, not a make a big deal about it...
    oh yes this is a great song by the way, although to be honest i can't really analyse what it means.... so this was completely pointless really. But oh well, i don't see anyone else commenting it.

    General Commenti like how they made a reference to "nothing gold can stay" and saying that they do have something golden and everyone keeps saying it won't last b/c well, nothing gold can stay. he believes that it will last, though, and the cliche saying is completely wrong. that's what i think, i don't know if they did that on purpose or not, but i think it's awesome.

    General CommentHow this song didn't make the final cut is beyond me, I love it. It's so anthemic (but in a knowing way, as the first verse illustrates). This band has a track record of putting out bonus tracks that are better than some of the album tracks (Forget Everything from Sticks And Stones, which this song is actually pretty similar to). Anyway, I love it to death, and I love shesamaverick's interpretation as well!

    General Commentit's not hard to translate. but here's my input. it's about a couple that loves each other, hence they got something "golden" meaning it is different than any other. everyone think they won't last but they don't know how they feel about each other.

    Lyric CorrectionAre there official lyrics for this? Because I hear it slightly differently:

    This could be the song
    Everyone relates to
    Another melody,
    Something we go through
    These could be the words
    To use in good fortune
    To keep in the back of mind
    For your back up plan
    It's the beat that keeps you marching on
    So take your jabs,
    I've got armor on
    Reasons will reveal itself
    In due time
    So for luck,
    Will you cross your fingers?

    This could be the verse,
    Always reminding you
    Of your battle scars
    All your could have been's
    Only I know what I've been through
    But for luck I still cross my fingers

    My OpinionI think that this song is not just about a couple. It's about everyone as he says. It's a song that everyone can relates to. To him, everybody has something golden inside
