Young God” is a song by American singer-songwriter Halsey, from her debut album, Badlands. It is the last song on the standard edition of the album.

Background

In a tweet, Halsey expressed what inspired the song: “I knew two complete strangers who were very similar to each other who’d use the phrase ‘we’re young gods.’ Trippy.”

This might even be a follow up to the song “Ghost”. In “Ghost” she is trying to find the right person, but while in the process, she has sex with many men and possibly women, as shown in the Ghost music video. And in this scene, it is one of the times that a man is having sex with her.

Lyrics

He says, "Oh, baby girl, you know we're gonna be legends
I'm the king and you're the queen and we will stumble through heaven
If there's a light at the end, it's just the sun in your eyes
I know you wanna go to heaven but you're human tonight"

And I've been sitting at the bottom of a swimming pool
For a while now, drowning my thoughts out with the sounds

But do you feel like a young God?
You know the two of us are just young gods
And we'll be flying through the streets with the people underneath
And they're running, running, running
But do you feel like a young God?
You know the two of us are just young gods
And we'll be flying through the streets with the people underneath
And they're running, running, running again

(And we'll be running, running, running again)
(And we'll be running, running, running)

He says "Oh, baby girl, don't get cut on my edges
I'm the king of everything you know my tongue is a weapon
There's a light in the crack that's separating your thighs
And if you wanna go to heaven you should fuck me tonight"

And I've been sitting at the bottom of a swimming pool
For a while now, drowning my thoughts out with the sounds

But do you feel like a young God?
You know the two of us are just young gods
And we'll be flying through the streets with the people underneath
And they're running, running, running
But do you feel like a young God?
You know the two of us are just young gods
And we'll be flying through the streets with the people underneath
And they're running, running, running again

(And we'll be running, running, running again)
(And we'll be running, running, running)
