Dermot Kennedy - Moments Passed Lyrics




Maybe it's all down to the thought of her
Maybe it's all down to the loss we learned
Knew for a long time, for all it's worth
I wanted to run to you
What if I'm caught up on it's me you're calling
What if I'm lost now, plus if demons come in
When she kissed me I felt a new freedom or something (well)
Move on
I found a moment to be brave, so I let her know
And she said, "how could I love you back, you who dropped your dreams in the gutter"
In my winter, she'll be burning slow
Feels like December knows me well

'Cause I loved ya
Does that mean nothing to you now?
I loved ya
Get me back on homely ground
She said, "oh I know that love is all about the wind
How it can hold me up and kill me in the end"
Still I loved it
Does that mean nothing to you now?

Days when we all watched 'till we lost the birds
Threw a rose in, 'till it caught the turn
Knew it felt right, we were bound to burn
I wanted to run to you
Maybe I've lost count of the rooms you're tall in
Maybe I've lost count of the nighttime all ins
So the trees and her were first to know
It'll all be good, just hold me well

'Cause I loved ya
Does that mean nothing to you now?
I loved ya
Get me back on homely ground
She said, "oh I know that love is all about the wind
How it can hold me up and kill me in the end"
Still I loved it
Does that mean nothing to you now?

Wasn't easy to go, I know
You shouldn't have no seat in the front row
I know, I know
Wasn't easy to go, I know
And the sun came out, day late though
I know, I know
Wasn't easy to go, I know
He pulled up, flat tyres, ten spokes
I know I know
Wasn't easy to go, I know
He came all that way just to say hello
I know, I know

'Cause I loved ya
Does that mean nothing to you now?
I loved ya
Get me back on homely ground
She said, "oh I know that love is all about the wind
How it can hold me up and kill me in the end"
Still I loved it
Does that mean nothing to you now?

  23. Denise Glavin

    Someone please tell me the lyrics at the start, there's a few versions going around, it's driving me mad, cause I have it on repeat

    Lucia Reiter

    I'd love to tell you but only Dermot himself and a few other people know the real lyrics to it 😅 For me it's "Dull & Worn" because if you listen closely @ 0:03 the high pitched voice sounds like it's saying "Dull & Worn" as well but i guess it's something different for everybody 🤷🏻‍♀️But you're more than right, it's driving me mad as well 😂

    8 Eighties Baby0

    Only when it’s God n war? That’s what I thought I was hearing

    Absolute Muppet

    I have seen the lyrics written as "hold on darling one, only when its darling one" and also seen them as "dull and worn old and dull and worn, well only when its dull and worn". Dermot put the lyrics to the song on his Facebook page a few years back but left those lyrics out and everyone in the comments were asking for them. I'm not sure anybody knows, he seems to keep it a secret for whatever reason.

  24. Rosie Mclane

    Woke up with 3:19 on in my head. This album is magic. ✨🌈🎶💫

  25. official sadgirl

    Him and NF should make a song together

  26. alice grimes

    Wow Brilliant what a beautiful voice.... One could get lost in his beautiful voice...Total chill out 💕

  27. lithium _

    Does anybody else hear Gloworm’s song “ Carry me home” at a certain part? The loop part?

  28. Truus Plekkenpol

    Helaas voorbij

  29. joe mcginnis

    Saw Dermot at the House of Blues in Boston a few weeks ago... this kid is the illest singer songwriter ive ever seen. His band is just as good. They sound live exactly how they do recorded...

    nane6

    I thought that they were even better live. Btw they had the entire set from the house of Blues here on yt, it was brilliant, better than Munich. But unfortunatelly it got deleted a few day ago.

  30. julesxo

    hes so amazing 🖤 his music helps through the darkest times

  31. SMG Motoring Inc.

    Just heard you for the first time on WGBH tv in Boston. It was this song with just you and the piano. Absolutely AMAZING!!!!! You have a new fan. Best of luck to you and your career! PLEASE record a version of this song with just you playing the piano and singing!!!

  32. Rachelle Peters

  49. Amber Youngblood

    I assume this was supposed to make me cry, to make me feel the break in my own soul, the pain of my own world and be held higher for knowing that the experience is shared in this world, that we feel this, so many of us.

    [Lyrics]


    [Intro]

    hold on
    hold on
    hold on
    hold on
    well
    Only when it's... well
    Only when it's... well
    Only when it's... well
    Only when it's

    [Verse 1]
    Maybe it's all down to the thought of her
    Maybe it's all down to the loss we learned
    Knew for a long time, for all it's worth
    I wanted to run to you
    What if I'm caught up and it's me you're calling?
    What if I'm lost now 'cause of demons comin'
    When she kissed me, I felt a new freedom or something
    Well, move on
    I found a moment to be brave, so I let her know
    And she said, "How could I love you back?
    You who dropped your dreams in the gutter"
    And in my winter, she'll be burning slow
    Feels like December knows me well

    [Chorus]
    'Cause I loved ya
    Does that mean nothing to you now?
    I loved ya
    Get me back on homely ground
    She said, "Oh, I know that love is all about the wind
    How it can hold me up and kill me in the end"
    Still I loved it
    Does that mean nothing to you now?

    [Verse 2]
    Days when we all watched 'til we lost the birds
    Threw a rose in 'til it caught the turn
    Knew it felt right, we were bound to burn
    I wanted to run to you
    Maybe I've lost count of the rooms you're tall in
    Maybe I've lost count of the nighttime all-ins
    So the trees and her were first to know
    It'll all be good, just hold me well

    [Chorus]
    'Cause I loved ya
    Does that mean nothing to you now?
    I loved ya
    Get me back on homely ground
    She said, "Oh, I know that love is all about the wind
    How it can hold me up and kill me in the end"
    Still I loved it
    Does that mean nothing to you now?

    [Bridge]
    Wasn't easy to go, I know
    You shouldn't have no seat in the front row
    I know, I know
    Wasn't easy to go, I know
    And the sun came out, day late though
    I know, I know
    Wasn't easy to go, I know
    He pulled up, flat tyres, ten spokes
    I know I know
    Wasn't easy to go, I know
    He came all that way just to say, "Hello"
    I know, I know

    [Chorus]
    'Cause I loved ya

    I loved ya
    Get me back on homely ground
    She said, "Oh, I know that love is all about the wind
    How it can hold me up and kill me in the end"
    Still I loved it
    Does that mean nothing to you now?

    [Outro]
    well

    Only when it's... well
    Only when it's (Oh)
