If you don't wanna hurt me, then don't
If you don't wanna cheat, then stay faithful
If you'd rather avoid causing damage,
Then avoid it as best as you're able

Stay golden, stay golden
Stay golden, stay golden

If you don't wanna bruise me, then stay away
But do it in your most affectionate way

Stay golden, stay golden

If you don't wanna make me pine for you,
Then tell me you'll always be mine like it's true

Stay golden, stay golden

Imagine how different your life would be if you'd stay
How different the lovers you always leave naked and splayed
Go over the doubts, the what if's, and the weary if only
And realize if you destroy all your friends you'll be lonely

If the apocalypse comes in a week,
Then you'll be left mumbling and meek

Stay golden, stay golden

And meet some new people, but see,
That they're not a replacement for me

Stay golden, stay golden

Open your mind to the chance that you'll be changed
Open your mind and let your silly self be rearranged
Stop expecting love to make you feel small
You might even find you like it after all

Stay golden, stay golden
Stay golden, stay golden
