Dermot Kennedy – For Island Fires And Family Lyrics



Dermot Kennedy – For Island Fires And Family Lyrics


[Verse 1]How it must feel to be a birdRoamin' lonely over sea airHow it must feel to be a birdLondon, Paris, underneathAnd I'll wait on my own(Ooh, hmm, ooh)
[Chorus]And I couldn't tell you enough that I'm sorryAnd no, you couldn't tell me enough that you love meBut she's bringin' the moon and stars to meDamn permanent reverieAnd even though this life, this love is briefI've got some people who carry me

[Verse 2]Wasn't it love as soon as we knew each other properly?Livin' 'bout half right 'til a certain person got to meNothin' is secret, everythin's sacred, how it ought to beUnder the moonlight on a clear nightOn rooftops is where I want to beSometimes I'm like a child, that's somethin' I can't releaseDreams of her comin' home, sweet homeAnd I'm tellin' you home is so sweetSaid you reminded me of the summertime, and I still mean thatIn a full room, I'm the only one she's smilin' atSo wouldn't you let me know if you were thinkin' less of me?That's what she asked meWhat was promised, what we both agreedBut truthfully, if you ever goYou'll drop me straight to Hell, the 7th circleAnd I was talkin' with you earlierWe were open and vulnerable, it was wonderfulI, I used to dream that you would talk to meI used to dream that you would talk to me

[Chorus]And I couldn't tell you enough that I'm sorryAnd no, you couldn't tell me enough that you love meBut she's bringin' the moon and stars to meDamn permanent reverieAnd even though this life, this love is briefI've got some people who carry me

[Verse 3]You know that feelin' when you think your heart is gonna come right out through your shirt?Get it a couple times a yearBut I've been gettin' it more often with herNow when I'm face to face with death, I'll grab his throatAnd ask him, "How does it hurt?"Up in those golden moments, growin' old too quicklyWas he thinkin' of her?

[Outro]But she's bringin' the moon and stars to meDamn permanent reverieAnd even though this life, this love is briefI've got some people who carry me
