Hive Open Mic Week 18 - Sign's - Lost - Dermot Kennedy

in GEMSlast year (edited)

Hi Folks

This week I am back in Wemyss Caves adding a touch of natural reverb to my entry for this weeks open mic.

The song is Lost by Dermot Kennedy ,I chose it because of this line ...

"The sky got red and swollen
I guess I dont see the signs
There can't be songs for every soldier
It can't be solace every time you cry"

"Lost"
Dermot Kennedy

When everything was broken
The devil hit his second stride
But you remember what I told you
Someday, I'll need your spine to hide behind
For fear of moments stolen
I don't wanna say goodnight
But I'll still see you in the morning
Still know your heart and still know both your eyes

I could have told you ‘bout the long nights
How no one loves the birds that don't rise
So you can tell the heroes go hide
My sense of wonder's just a little tired

But if only you could see yourself in my eyes
You'd see you shine, you shine
I know you'd never leave me behind
But I am lost this time
Are we destined to burn or will we last the night?
I will hold you 'til I hold you right
But if only you could see yourself in my eyes
You'd see you shine, you shine

So let's run into the open
Keep your hand inside of mine
And then when everything is over
I hope to think of this as better times
The sky got red and swollen
I guess I never see the signs
There can't be songs for every soldier
It can't be solace every time you cry

I could have told you ‘bout the long nights
How no one loves the birds that don't rise
So you can tell the heroes go hide
My sense of wonder's just a little tired

But if only you could see yourself in my eyes
You'd see you shine, you shine
I know you'd never leave me behind
But I am lost this time
What if the love we deserve is love we never find
I've learned in Love and death we dont decide
But if only you could see yourself in my eyes
You'd see you shine, you shine

I was lost until I found you
Now these songs will hold and hide your name
What at once was all about you
Now the moon will never seem the same

But if only you could see yourself in my eyes
You'd see you shine, you shine
I know you'd never leave me behind
But I am lost this time
What if the love we deserve is love we never find
I've learned in Love and death we dont decide
But if only you could see yourself in my eyes
You'd see you shine, you shine

I know you'd never leave me behind

Another song with lyrics that punch a person right in the heart. Thanks for doing what you do. Man, I love that cave, with the sea right outside. It's the perfect place for a sad song.
