Intro (Jungkook)

In a world where you feel cold

You gotta stay gold oh baby yeah

The charming moonlight

Another sleepless night

Relying on the light of the moon towards you

I can see into your heart

Sneaking in right up to you

I’ll be close before you know it

Don’t know of impurity

Your eyes are diamonds

More beautiful than any gem

I’m constantly captivated, truly

Can’t take my eyes away from you no more

Pre-Chorus (V)

Even a clock hand will stop moving

Oh let it glow whoa

Chorus (Jungkook, Jimin, Jin)

Stay gold, even in my dreams

Stay gold, we search for each other

Stay gold, gold Just want to touch you

Stay gold, your everything Stay gold, captures my heart

Stay gold, I want to obtain it

Stay gold stay gold stay gold

Stay gold eternally forever gold

Verse 2 (J-Hope)

Without your notice

I approach you slowly

I’m notifying you baby

Your defenseless self

Will be gently taken by me

Your deepest parts now

Treasured memories speed up like this

Oh it’s a secret whoa

Chorus (Jungkook, Jimin, Jin, V)

Stay gold, as long as you’re here

Just want to hold you

Stay gold, love is endless

Stay gold, releasing light

Stay gold, more than any star

Stay gold stay gold stay gold

Stay gold eternally forever gold

First close your eyes

Don’t say anything

I’ll steal your heart

Like magic

If it’s a miracle, I’ll show you yeah

Reach out your hand
