Bounce off the walls
Valentine, have your fun
Come on, be the one
Come on, be the one

Light up the floor
With your moves, Valentine
Come on, be the one
Come on, be the one

Do your worst, worst, worst
Do your worst, worst, worst

Valkyrie, don't go home
It's not right, not right
Leave with the lights up
It's half for me, half for love
You're a gold mine, gold mine

Stand in the puddles of the disco ball's glow
Come on, be the one
Come on, be the one

There, just like that
There, you're doing it again
Come on, be the one
Come on, be the one

And what's worst, worst, worst
There's no words, words, words

Valkyrie, don't go home
It's not right, not right
Leave with the lights up
It's half for you, half for love
You're a gold mine, gold mine

Valkyrie, don't go home
It's not right, not right
Leave with the lights up
It's half for me, half for love
You're a gold mine, gold mine

You're a gold mine, gold mine

    General CommentEncouraging someone to go out and have the time of their life. That person means a lot to the narrator (you're a gold mine) and they want the "valkyrie" to have some fun and not to leave until the lights go up. Pretty straightforward apart from the weird title.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs. It is an anthem of encouragement for a wallflower type individual. The narrator is coaxing them to step out of their comfort zone and do what they love to do. It is advising the individual to be the person that they want to be doing, perhaps, what they admire in others, thus "be the one."

    "Leave with the lights up" seems to be imagery with a concert how it isn't until the very end that all the lights of a venue come one. It is saying stay till the end; don't leave early; participate in living.

    I really see it as advice for someone struggling in life. They are saying get out and live, do what you feel like doing, and participate in all you dream about.

    Song MeaningI agree with the others about it being a song of encouragement for someone to have the time of their life, but the other interpretations are missing a significant detail: that this song is addressed to "Valkyrie." A valkyrie is a mythological woman who collects the souls of the dead who have fallen in battle. That seems like a very powerful symbol, that she is bringing about the end of something for somebody who was fighting to the end. My guess would be that "Valkyrie" is a woman who is ending a relationship with the singer, but it could be any situation where someone is bringing about the end of something.

    The rest of the song is saying that they shouldn't just end it quietly, but instead make a real night of it. Don't just go away quietly and let it end, but make it go out with a bang. If it is about a relationship, he is probably saying that they should have some amazing night together before the relationship is finally over.

    "Do your worst, do your worst" further sounds like she is ending something, and he is accepting that but he is going to make something of it before it's all over.

    General CommentThis song is an anti-suicide anthem. The band is supporting the song's association with thenewgay.net as an anthem against gay suicide. Perhaps it was written with that intention; it could have been equally written as an appeal to a friend or a bullied kid contemplating suicide. Valentine was a name given to 1st century Christian martyrs. The later meaning associated with Saint Valentine's Day is adjoined presenting a picture of dying for love or heartbreak. The narration is a pleading to Valentine live and live fully ("Come on, be the One" - be who you're meant to be) as well as a reprimand to the Valkyrie not to return to Valhalla with Valentine's soul, as the Valkyrie determines who is to die on the battlefield. Valentine is depicted as someone with self doubt who doesn't see him/herself as the goldmine they are.

    The lyrics "Do your worst, worst, worst; And what's worst, worst, worst; There's no words, words, words" rings of outrage at the bully or societal rejection or perhaps Valentine's inner demon. The roller disco is a symbol of the freeing of one's spirit, of not giving in to the darkness.

    Beautiful song
