Dermot Kennedy – Innocence and Sadness Lyrics

 

Innocence and Sadness Lyrics by Dermot Kennedy

 

Never felt alone till the late night
Never knew she was my home till the tears dried
Working on the karma but it takes time
Innocence and sadness was a fine line

Better savour every moment as it flies by
Every minute boy
Better live it boy

Maybe someday you’ll be happy for me
Every minute boy
Steady rhythm joy

The reason I stay
Well I need ya today
Baby I would bleed in your name
I’m trying to be who you need me to be

I would have waited for you all night to talk for a minute
I’ll sing into the cold dark night till you listen
Some people spend their life heads down, souls hidden
I’m trying to be who you need me to be

Never felt alone till the late night
Never knew she was my home till the king cried
Lost inside the forest but it feels fine
Innocence and sadness in the same night

All the love that just got stolen from your wide eyes
Every minute boy
Better live it boy
Let your tears erode my shoulder like a cliffside
Every minute boy
Steady rhythm joy

The reason I stay
Well I need ya today
Baby I would bleed in your name
I’m trying to be who you need me to be

I’d do anything for smiles, I’d move heaven and earth
Nobody told me at the start bout how heaven can hurt
So I’ll be waiting under streetlight at Bowery and 3rd
Know I was waiting on ya, know I was waiting on ya

Darling don’t spend another second wondering what you’re worth
Don’t you ever get affected by the ways of this world
Wouldn’t say my soul’s protected but there’s something at work
Know I was waiting on ya, know I was waiting on ya

Better savour every moment as it flies by
Every minute boy, better live it boy

Return me safely, turn me homeward at the right time
Every minute boy, steady rhythm joy
