Dermot Kennedy - Glory Lyrics




For all the moments never known
'Cause he stepped off of the tallest sail
For all the love he'd left below
In the waves

He made his peace with letting go
Said some things he'd never dared to say
The one the lighthouse left alone
Never saved

A set of eyes had pinned him
Became his version of a kingdom
Now I know they'll never hunt me

When she's singing to me "Glory"
(And a hopeful rhythm woke within him)
She's singing to me "Glory"
(Had some letters written, 'course she's in 'em)
She's singing to me "Glory"
(Tried to tell her, throat was linen)
She's singing to me "Glory"
I was only ever thinking about you, you know
She's singing to me "Glory"

They found a letter that he wrote
He said "it's best off if we burn the page"
I wrote it very long ago
In different days

I guess I'm tired of talk of hope
I've learned that doves and ravens fly the same (fly the same)
But suddenly she's all I know
An old refrain

A set of eyes had pinned him
Became his version of a kingdom
Now I know they'll never hunt me

When she's singing to me "Glory"
(And a hopeful rhythm woke within him)
She's singing to me "Glory"
(Had some letters written, 'course she's in 'em)
She's singing to me "Glory"
(Tried to tell her, throat was linen)
She's singing to me "Glory"
I was only ever thinking about you, you know
She's singing to me "Glory"
I was only ever thinking about you, you know
Singing to me "Glory" (Oh)
(Glory)
I was only ever thinking about you, you know
Singing to me "Glory"

A set of eyes had pinned him
Became his version of a kingdom
She's everything the devil can't be
When she's singing to me "Glory"

A set of eyes had pinned him
Became his version of a kingdom
She's everything the devil can't be
When she's singing to me "Glory"

(Glory, glory, oh)
She's singing to me "Glory", no (glory)
Singing to me "Glory" (glory)

  82. with a Story

    "For all the moments never known
    'Cause he stepped off of the tallest sail
    For all the love he'd left below in the waves
    He made his peace with letting go"

    ---

    Imagine part of your heart attached to certain people and experiences.
    When the dark half of that part gets more meaningful than the bright half, you feel like you can't go on.

    Sometimes, in order to continue, you have to move forward, detaching yourself from that part. A trunk locked by a key that weighs more than an anchor, which once left free of the mind's hand, collapses everything in the inner depths.

    Everything that could follow remains unknown, only some deserted waves could remind you of something forgotten long ago, and peace makes place for your spiritual rebirth.

    Your own deserted waves, what are they reminding you of?

  83. Brad MacDonald
