lyrics

DEACON STREET

On the first night
We laid awake in the dark,
In the dark
Making promises
To put an end to this war
Mmm
And in the moonlight
You told me I’d be a star:
“It’s what you are”
But on Deacon Street
We counted footsteps apart

I was brave, I was foolish
I was bound to the music
I was raised by the ghosts of a people ever-losing
You were cruel, you were crazy
You took every failure out on me, but -
We didn’t know how to love

Now I feel
More than I want to say
I never walked away
What is real,
I just wanna hear you say,
“I’d never leave you, baby”

You put your hands in mine
And told me we could be smarter
Mmm
But on the mountainside
You smashed it all at my heart
Whoa -
I walked a straight line,
I thought it’d make me immortal,
What was it all for?
On Deacon Street,
Where we burnt down every door
Yeah – what was it for?

‘Cause I was mad at the music,
I was sad at the bruises,
But your words hurt me more than any fist of my choosing
Turned around when I needed you the most
But I concede the truth is,
We didn’t know how to love
Now I feel
More than I want to say
I never walked away
What is real,
Oh yeah
I just wanna hear you say,
“I’d never leave you, baby”

Now I feel, mmm
Far more than I want to say
I never walked away
What is real,
Oh yeah
I just wanna hear you say,
“I’d never leave you, baby”

I hate that Deacon Street
Means nothing more to me
Than stupid broken dreams
And feeling like you’re holding me back
This much is true:
I can’t remember you
As loving me as much as I loved you -
Oh baby!

On the last night
We laid awake in the dark
(In the dark)
On Deacon Street,
Where I last felt my heart...

Now I feel
More than I want to say
I never walked away
What is real,
I just wanna hear you say,
“I’d never leave you, baby” -

Now I feel
Far more than I want to say
I never walked away from you, uh-huh
What is real,
Oh yeah
I just wanna hear you say,
“I’d never leave you, baby”

You know it’s true
I can’t remember you
As loving me as much as I loved you
(I just wanna hear you say, “I’d never leave you, baby”)
Oh baby

You know it’s true
I can’t remember you
As loving me as much as I loved you
(I just wanna hear you say, “I’d never leave”)
Oh baby

You know it’s true
I can’t remember you
As loving me as much as I loved you
Oh baby

You know it’s true
I can’t remember you
As loving me as much as I loved you
Oh baby

You know it’s true
I can’t remember you
As loving me as much as I loved you
Oh baby

You know it’s true
I can’t remember you,
I can’t remember you,
I can’t remember you
