Dermot Kennedy - Young & Free Lyrics

Where do we go from here? Something came in with the night
Snow came in heavy, my boys and me wandering blind, yeah
Well it's temporary, darling, now that bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan heard all our lines
Meant what I said, I want all of this, all of the time

Ooh when I'm gone
At the dune with the dawn
Well that's all I could want

We were young
We were free, come on now, let it go
We were young
We were free
I was living in the cold, I'm coming home
Perfect line to open with
Her heart was never meant for this
Ooo we're never over it
We were young
We were free
Yeah, yeah

All that she said to me stays with me, never to die
Held me brand new in the silence that went through the pines
Like I said already darling, I don't want you looking back at all the ghosts left behind
Know you'll stay near me so road remains hopeful this time

We were young
We were free, come on now, let it go
We were young
We were free
I was living in the cold, I'm coming home
Perfect line to open with
Her heart was never meant for this
Ooo we're never over it
We were young
We were free
Yeah, yeah

Keep it another for a night, keep it another for a night
All I'll ever know, baby we were bound to burn
Keep it another for a night, keep it another for a night
All I'll ever know, baby we were bound to burn
Baby, we were bound to burn

We were young
We were free, come on now, let it go
We were young
We were free
I was living in the cold, I'm coming home
Perfect line to open with
Her heart was never meant for this
Ooo we're never over it
We were young
We were free
Yeah, yeah

Oh, when I'm gone
At the dune with the dawn
Well that's all I could want

  52. Gleekasaurs

    Blown away!!!    love his voice and this song!

  53. SystemExclusive

    Im in love with every part of this song but specially the last bridge. I cant hear what he is saying properly though.... In the lyrics i read: 'Keeping another Fortnight' But is this realy right? Im not sure. If some1 is please confirm

    Caleb Noland

    SystemExclusive “ keep it another fortnight. Keep it another fortnight. All I’ll ever know. Baby we were bound to burn”


    @Caleb Noland thanks! Didn't expect Fortnight to be a real excisting word next to the popular video game... I can imagine it means something like he's staying alone at home for another night? Away from his girl?

    Caleb Noland

    @SystemExclusive A fortnight is equivalent to two weeks.

  54. Great dane

    favorite song so far deff. getting better 💯👈🤙

  55. Curtis Tonge

    How is this not on the album 🔥🖤🤘

  56. Jorge Zuniga

    I listened one of his songs on my flight to Mexico. Reminds me of Sam Smith but a little more powerful.

  57. warren Stephens

    thats why i cant mix rap with this kinda music i need meaningful music in my life or life becomes a Blur for me i need good tunes and this is my kinda style music s;very Cherry"

  58. Cool Dude

    I first heard this song on the radio about a hear ago. Back then he only had 2 albums out. Ever since I heard this on the radio. I have listened and felt this man's story. He is and will probably be the only singer that you can FEEL with your heart. Dermont, you are special. And I know that I'm speaking for many people when I say you are the GREATEST singer of all time.

    Man I hate music like this but all of your songs are so good cuz the emotion in your voice and how you belt them notes out just makes it so good.

  92. Ron Sherrard

    There are few true poets in popular music anymore...he is one of the best in a long time. Reminds me of early Springsteen.

  93. Sayed Owais Shah
