Natalie Merchant Golden Boy Lyrics

Last updated:

Top of the fold
Toast of the town
Everyone stops when you come around
They hold their breath for you

Heroes are born
Idols are made
We're all fools for this factory fame
And you've got the brand new face

You've got the brand new face
Golden boy

Beauty untamed
Stupid and wild
Poster boy, you're society's child
Cut your teeth
Cut your mouth
Cut it out

Meteor rise from obscurity
All it took was a killing spree
And the whole world was lying at your feet
Golden boy

I know my place
Stick to my lines
Stay in your shadow
Don't block your light

So you can shine divine
Golden boy

The song every writer wishes they had written... | Reviewer: Phil | 7/2/2007

Achingly beautiful, with a sharp sting in that one definitive line in the second verse that brings everything into focus.

love it | Reviewer: Donny | 9/19/2006

I love the demo version of this song. The slow steady rythem with the hard background guitar sound is addictive.
