Dermot Kennedy - Rome Lyrics




So, what's the past for? I'll need it if love don't last long
So you can run around infinite in my head
All you can't see, oh, I'd stay if you asked me
Now you know I care, but it's hard to tell when you're scared

Last night
It hurt me to hear you say it felt broken
And even though I tried
All these memories run my mind in slow motion

Do you remember when?
Midnight drives when you'd sing
I'd play you songs you were in
I just want to be there again
Do you remember when?
With Rome below us that day
You said, "I wish we could stay"
I just want to be there again

Remember that first laugh? All it changed once I had that
Like a hurricane but I don't care where I land
So, dance carefree, I hope it's easier knowing me
Now, your soul is yours but I'll help it move if I can

Last night
It hurt me to hear you say it felt broken
And even though I tried
All these memories run my mind in slow motion

Do you remember when?
Midnight drives when you'd sing
I'd play you songs you were in
I just want to be there again
Do you remember when?
With Rome below us that day
You said, "I wish we could stay"
I just want to be there again

Do you remember when, oh?
Do you remember when?

So, I don't ever wanna leave when you cry
I know I give you reasons to hide
I need you to stay by my side
First shootin' star that you ever saw
We were right on our feet though, right?
Opening the car door for light
I really thought I'd lose you that time

Do you remember when?
Midnight drives when you'd sing
I'd play you songs you were in
I just want to be there again
Do you remember when?
With Rome below us that day
You said, "I wish we could stay"
I just want to be there again

Do you remember when, oh?
Do you remember when?
Do you remember when, oh?
Do you remember when?

    2020 anyone? Let's make this year the BEST year it could possibly be out of all the rest... "make every day a history to remember!!"❤💫💜

  3. Charlie Butterworth

    I have listened to this for 2 days none stopand still doing so, its incredible!

  4. Alfiyan ,

    I cried the whole flight listening to this on repeat :-(

  5. T MM

    I have been a professional musician and music teacher for longer than I care to say. I was influenced by the great renaissance in music by The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, etc. I gave up on music during the punk era and never really regained any interest or heard anything that I thought was important, until now. I recently discovered Dermot Kennedy and realized there is something out there worth listening to. The voice, lyrics, melodies, structure of his songs have given me faith that there is something new worth listening to. I am loathe to use the word 'genius', but his songs are something else. And he comes from a place just twenty miles away from me. May you reach the heights and recognition you deserve.

  6. MaZe

    people who like such music have a beautiful taste, I respect all kind of music tho

  7. Alex Grande

    Fool me once
    Shame on you
    Fool me twice
    Put the blame on you
    Fool me three times
    I’m through with you oooo ooo

    Know You want to take
    you’ve already taken
    Know you want to shake
    What you’ve awakened
    I’m so tired
    I don’t care
    I’m so tired
    Leave me here
    I’m so tired
    Moving on
    I’m so tired
    Of your lyin Lion love songs

    Fool me once
    Shame on you
    Fool me twice
    Put the blame on you
    Fool me three times
    I’m done with you ooo oooo

    Don’t know why you still try
    When I gave you all my lovin’ inside
    And you hurt me again
    N
    Again
    N
    AGAINNNNNNNNN

    Can’t take the pain old friend...
    You can’t mend what you broke
    You can’t give back what you took
    So keep on writing your book
    Leave my name out of the page
    We both know you’re to blame..
    I’m done being called insane
    I’m done being told I’m to blame
    I’m done being called a liar
    A cheat
    A whore wife
    You beat
    Everything out of me..
    So do your worse it hurts
    Do your worse on me eee eee
    Do your worse I don’t care
    I’m left crying over here...

    Hurt me
    Left me
    Obsess over me
    Now I’m dead
    Hope this plan of yours
    Was worth it in your head.

    Make Lucifer cry
    All I ever heard you say
    Make Satan sad
    I hope this broken soul makes you glad
    Love it when she mad
    Know my broken heart makes you glad
    Just so you know
    I’m not what you say
    Just so you know
    With out you I see better days
    I’m sure you’re proud
    go proclaim it to the crowd
    You take this crown
    I’m stepping my ass down
    I don’t need this stress
    you made my head n heart turn into a mess
    I hope your happy
    You got what you wanted
    That’s all I ever wanted for you...
    And all you ever wanted for me
    Was to watch my heart turn blue


    So go to mars
    Go to space
    Make fun of me like
    All I ever needed was your face
    When all I ever needed
    Was my own place
    After all you never cared
    That’s why you’re stuck over there
    So move on
    Cause I’m gone
    So long
    You did me wrong
    Had your chance you blew it
    Out of luck out of time
    I’m just happy to be free
    From the shackles you placed on me
