Lyrics

Golden lights displaying your name Golden lights it's a terrible shame But oh my darling WHY DID YOU CHANGE ?

Boy in a million, idol, a big star I didn't tell you how great you were I didn't grovel and scream And rip your brand new jacket at the seams

You made a record, they liked your singing All of a sudden the phone stops ringing Ah ... I never thought that you would let The glory make you forget

Golden lights displaying your name Golden lights it's a terrible shame But oh my darling WHY DID YOU CHANGE ?

Top ten idol, king of your age Who do you turn to when you're backstage ? Don't you remember you once knew a girl You loved her more than the world

Is life always like this, brother ? Good for one side but bad for another I must put you behind me tonight 'Cause you belong to the lights

Those golden lights displaying your name Golden lights it's a terrible shame But oh my darling WHY DID YOU CHANGE ?

Oh, oh my darling WHY ? WHY DID YOU CHANGE ?

Oh ...
