Neptune Lyrics

Brian Fallon
[Verse 1]
I never felt like I was home
Felt like a strange long-distance caller
Set to the words I heard on the needle spinnin' by my bedside
And I used to stay up most of the night
With my ear tuned to any sign
Of life, of love, of something that felt like redemption

[Pre-Chorus]
And I never dreamed that I would see you again
But I never forgot all the times that we spent flying rolled down low like the window

[Chorus]
And maybe we believed in very, very foolish things
Maybe these songs kept us breathing another tomorrow
And we were always very sure we were never gonna change the world
I never held any grudges or kept any pictures

[Verse 2]
And what did it mean for all these years I spent chasin them ferris wheels
That were always gone like visions come the morning?
But there's not one day I regret
And I would do it all again
So if I go down, Lily, I'm going down believing

[Pre-Chorus]
And I never dreamed that I would see you again
And I lost myself for a season in Hell flying rolled down low like the window

[Chorus]
And maybe we believed in very, very foolish things
Maybe these songs kept us breathing another tomorrow
And we were always very sure we were never gonna change the world
I never held any grudges or kept any pictures
(Hey!)

[Bridge]
She said, "tonight, my love, I declare this war for your falling from grace with me"
While Neptune rolled out a carpet made of gold for the mermaids he drowned in the sea
It's been a long time since I kept any pictures
And it's been a long night, I don't know where to find her

[Chorus]
And maybe we believed in very, very foolish things
Maybe these songs kept us breathing another tomorrow
And we were always very sure we were never gonna change the world
I never held any grudges or kept any pictures

[Outro]
(It's been a long time
Since I kept any pictures
It's been a long night
And I don't know where to find her) x2
