Golden years, gold whop whop whop

    David is expressing his eternal love and encouragement to his wife Angela who was lost in all her anxiety and depression. Every one loves you and you will be ok again so come get up my baby and lets bask in the shadows of the success and riches that we are lucky enough to have and in the prime of our lives

    It means you are living now. Appreciate what you have then it's golden and then it shines. Do your best and give your best to the world.

    Bowie is trying to commit to one woman and to commit to God but he is not sure... read Johannes Climacus by Kierkegaard

    This song is about selling your soul to make it big. "Run for the shadows in these golden years." Bowie was an occultist, not a Christian.

    What idiotic "interpretations"!! Nazis? Not a Christian are you? This song is about someone lost in faith and being encouraged to come back and not be lost. Jesus reign for a thousand years when he returns. He is the one that will stick with you for a thousand years and nothing can touch you. The song ends with "wish upon wish upon day on oh lord I believe all the way.

    A uptomistically hopeful song by BOWIE[r.i.p] about still continuing believing and having faith in the coming ''Golden Years'' with The Lord in mind and encouraging His love[baby,angel] to rise in thought and spirit from the ashes of the past and not to look back at The Fall of Germany's ''Golden Years'' that was supposed to last for a thousand years, which was cut short and put on hold by The Zionist Communist Nazis on the left who scattered the social Fascists[democrats] and their shadows all over the world after the war. Where he once did, and would still sleep with her for those thousand years promised, out of love and emphaty for her and her country. Now being and traveling on the future's ''Golden Years'' that met her there again in order to bring her back from her beaten past with hope for making a new and better life for themselves.
