Dermot Kennedy – For Island Fires And Family lyrics

[Verse 1]
How it must feel to be a bird
Roamin’ lonely over sea air
How it must feel to be a bird
London, Paris, underneath
And I’ll wait on my own
(Ooh, hmm, ooh)

[Chorus]

And I couldn’t tell you enough that I’m sorry

And no, you couldn’t tell me enough that you love me

But she’s bringin’ the moon and stars to me

Damn permanent reverie

And even though this life, this love is brief

I’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 me

Nothin’ is secret, everythin’s sacred, how it ought to be

Under the moonlight on a clear night

On rooftops is where I want to be

Sometimes I’m like a child, that’s somethin’ I can’t release

Dreams of her comin’ home, sweet home

And I’m tellin’ you home is so sweet

Said you reminded me of the summertime, and I still mean that

In a full room, I’m the only one she’s smilin’ at

So wouldn’t you let me know if you were thinkin’ less of me?

That’s what she asked me

What was promised, what we both agreed

But truthfully, if you ever go

You’ll drop me straight to Hell, the 7th circle

And I was talkin’ with you earlier

We were open and vulnerable, it was wonderful

I, I used to dream that you would talk to me

I used to dream that you would talk to me

[Chorus]

And I couldn’t tell you enough that I’m sorry

And no, you couldn’t tell me enough that you love me

But she’s bringin’ the moon and stars to me

Damn permanent reverie

And even though this life, this love is brief

I’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 year

But I’ve been gettin’ it more often with her

Now when I’m face to face with death, I’ll grab his throat

And ask him, “How does it hurt?”

Up in those golden moments, growin’ old too quickly

Was he thinkin’ of her?

[Outro]

But she’s bringin’ the moon and stars to me

Damn permanent reverie

And even though this life, this love is brief

I’ve got some people who carry me
