Jasmine Thompson - Pompeii Lyrics




I was left to my own devices
Many days fell away with nothing to show

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

We were caught up and lost in all of our voices
In your pose as the dust settled around us

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

Oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?
Oh oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

If you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?

    Pompeii

    Bastille

    I was left to my own devices
    Many days fell away with nothing to show

    And the walls kept tumbling down
    In the city that we love
    Grey clouds roll over the hills
    Bringing darkness from above

    But if you close your eyes
    Does it almost feel like
    Nothing changed at all?
    And if you close your eyes
    Does it almost feel like
    You've been here before?
    How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
    How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

    We were caught up
    And lost in all of our vices
    In your pose as the dust settles around us

    And the walls kept tumbling down
    In the city that we love
    Grey clouds roll over the hills
    Bringing darkness from above

    But if you close your eyes
    Does it almost feel like
    Nothing changed at all?
    And if you close your eyes
    Does it almost feel like
    You've been here before?
    How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
    How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

    Oh where do we begin?
    The rubble or our sins?
    Oh where do we begin?
    The rubble or our sins?

    And the walls kept tumbling down
    In the city that we love
    Grey clouds roll over the hills
    Bringing darkness from above

    But if you close your eyes
    Does it almost feel like
    Nothing changed at all?
    And if you close your eyes
    Does it almost feel like
    You've been here before?
    How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
    How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

    If you close your eyes
    Does it almost feel like
    Nothing changed at all?

  38. Hidayat No Saccharine

  39. Bergen Buschmeyer

    SHE'S SO CUTE

  40. azziet

    good singing en all, but that thick as all hell (im assuming the southern part) southern british accent is so british it is actually scary snd ive dealt with thick stokish accents my entire life

    toff358

    Fascinatingly hilarious comment "en" all.... Tragic that you should find an unremarkable very clear and precise, anything *but* "thick" south west London accent "scary" - what a delicate, easily frightened little soul you must be! I`ve no idea what "stokish" means but it`s sobering to think that you`ve had to deal with such accents your "entire life" - I imagine you`re in your very early teens at best - it all must have been absolute hell for you :) Every one of us has of course an accent of some variety; one of the great things about Britain is that the accents vary greatly from county to county; personally I love all of them. I wonder what we would make of your particular accent were we to hear it. Perhaps fortunately, we`ll never know...

  41. Akbar Valindo
