lyrics

When in Rome

A hidden rose grows deep in the vines
'Neath the bloody thorns, there entwined
Petals heart shaped in size, tried my best to disguise
Though no green thumb am I
And while I write this our dreams are fading
Are your feelings dissipating?
I'm still ready and waiting for the glorious mending of the story book ending

How did you get inside my head?
I guess your aiming was true but it's
Dead to love me
After all the things I couldn't do
There is no falling from grace
No gravity in this place it's
Dead to love me
But when in Rome we'll do as the Romans do

Watch the leaves as their colours recede
Natures beauty can be ugly to me
The glare stains my eyes
Close the blinds as if my past disappears as the leaves die
Shouldn't have left in the first place
Not even a photo to capture your grace
As I drove you to fly
I just prayed to the sky that the car would just die

How did you get inside my head?
I guess your aiming was true but it's
Dead to love me
After all the things I couldn't do
But when we're far away
We can be as different as we wanna be
It's dead to love me
But when in Rome we'll do as the Romans do

What does my conscience now prove?
'Cause I'm still thinking of you
I'll drink the pain away
Just drink the pain away
Don't need suggestions from you
I'm not a charity case
I'll just drink my pain away
Just drink my pain away

Here's your keys to the fire

And now that you're inside my head
I hope you're listening closely it's
Dead to love me
After all the things I couldn't do
What do you want me to say?
That I think about you everyday?
It's dead to love me
But when in Rome we'll do as the Romans do
