Roman Candles

Album: Asphalt Meadows (2022)

  • It's been a battle just to wake and greet the day
    Then they all disappear like sugar in my coffee
    (Sugar in my coffee)
    A hint of sweetness but the bitterness remains
    The acidity devouring my body
    (Devouring my body)

    But I am learning to let go
    Of everything I tried to hold
    Too long 'cause they all explode
    Like roman candles

    I used to feel everything like a flame
    But now it's a struggle just to feel anything
    (To feel anything)
    I watch the world from a window on a hill
    Everyone moving as I'm standing still
    (I'm standing still)

    But I am learning to let go
    Of everything I tried to hold
    Too long 'cause they all explode
    Like roman candles

    Ah-woo, ah-woo
    Ah-woo, ah-woo

    But I am learning to let go
    Of everything I tried to hold
    Too long 'cause they all explode
    Like roman candles
    Like roman candles
