Kings of Leon - Revelry Cover by © Soraya E. Navia

what a night for a dance,
you know i’m a dancing machine
with the fire in my bones
and the sweet taste of kerosene

i get lost in the night,
so high, i don’t want to come down
to face the loss of the good thing that i had found

in the dark of the night
i can hear you calling my name
with the hardest of hearts
i still feel full of pain

so i drink and i smoke
and i ask you if you’re ever around
even though it was me
who drove us right in the ground

see, the time we shared
it was precious to me
but all the while i was dreaming of revelry

gonna run, baby, run
like a stream down a mountainside
with the wind at my back
i don’t ever even bat an eye
just know it was you all along
who had a hold of my heart
but the demon and you
were the best of friends from the start

so the time we shared
it was precious to me
all the while i was dreaming of revelry
dreaming of revelry

and i told myself
boy, away you go
it rained so hard
it felt like snow
everything came
tumbling down on me

in the back of the woods
in dark of the night
the paleness of the old moonlight
everything just felt incomplete

dreaming of revelry 

"once upon a time, there was a person who swore they’d love you forever. consider the opportunity to love the greatest of all blessings, even when love doesn’t go your way, the love you give is the love you get & it is all good no matter where love takes you. let the ability to love another belong to you forever and ever because real love stories never end.

one of the best quotes i know of and a quote that i will try my best to live by.

Endless Hours Staring at the Stars

the nights when we thought too much, replay inside my head

and one day i’ll laugh at the silliness & hope to God that you’ll agree

the brushed exits from your car, and endless hours staring at the stars

we’re always worth it & don’t you forget that

tinted roses became an obsession and broken hours are all we felt

breathless summer mornings felt so free, but how could they not when your face is all i see

tomorrow’s just another chance to make them smile

but it’s still today so give me your coat, sit, and stay a while

echo my voice and let me find my way

no one’s perfect and yet we’re all trying so hard

stay young and true and wait until you can

we got too hot, yet stayed so close cause your skin is all i feel

so when times got hard and my mood became too much - we laughed and thought of the future

'marry me' you always say and wait for my response

'of course' i answer and think of what kind of dress i'm gonna get

i wrote that last summer. just thought i’d compare the summers and the poetry, you know

i’m in love with my beloved fantasy

and confused by our destroyed reality

i asked you, baby, if you’d be mine

if you’d roll away to sea with me

but all you said was sorry

baby, all you said was sorry
