"Empty Gold" is the fourth song off of Halsey's debut extended play, Room 93. It is also featured on the Japanese edition of her debut album, Badlands.

Background

During the Room 93 Spotify commentary, Halsey said, "We must’ve sent “Empty Gold” to get additional production on it like eight times because it just has this HUGE cinematic feeling to it. Just like, this big action scene, like things are gonna come to a resolve, walking to the end of the sunset, credits-rolling kind of feeling, and we really wanted someone who was gonna nail that. “Empty Gold” is like one of those songs that really just built up for me. […] When we finally got this version back, we were all ecstatic about it because it gives you like this reckless, breathless feeling, but there’s also a sense of triumph in it, and I think that was really important to us in putting this song out."

Lyrics

I, I must confess
How hard I tried to breathe
Through the trees of loneliness.
And you, you must confess
How hard you need to see
Through the heart beating out my chest.

Feel like we've been falling down
Like these autumn leaves.
But baby don't let winter come,
Don't let our hearts freeze.

If the morning light don't steal our soul,
We will walk away from empty gold.

Dark as midnight sun,
Smoke as black as charcoal
Fills into our fragile lungs.
Cause when our demons come,
Dancing in the shadows,
To a game that can't be won.

Feel like we've been falling down
Like these autumn leaves.
But baby don't let Winter come,
Don't let our hearts freeze.

If the morning light don't steal our soul,
We will walk away from empty gold.
If the morning light don't steal our soul,
We will walk away from empty gold.

We're the underdogs in this world alone
I'm a believer, got a fever running through my bones.
We're the alley cats and they can throw their stones
They can break our hearts, they won't take our souls.

We're the underdogs in this world alone
I'm a believer, got a fever running through my bones.
We're the alley cats and they can throw their stones
They can break our hearts, they won't take our souls.

If the morning light don't steal our soul,
We will walk away from empty gold.
If the morning light don't steal our soul,
We will walk away from empty gold.
We will walk away from empty gold.
