The Airborne Toxic Event The Fall Of Rome Lyrics

What ever happened to the fall of Rome?

What a strange thing to ask

When I was taking you home

As we walked alone through the parking lot

I said I don’t have much

You said I like what you got

And I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t picture you then

In your wedding dress

In the days I hoped we’d someday spend

In our Sunday best

We were light as a flame

Both batshit insane

We were lost

We were just the same

What ever happened to the fall of Rome?

You were a mystery to me

But the place felt like home

And there are no rules when you’re falling in love

You just take what you get and you hope its enough

And I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t picture you then

In your wedding dress

In the days I hoped we’d someday spend

In our Sunday best

We were wrong from the start

With our broken arms

You played your role

And I played my part

And the road was so long

I was never as strong

As the love you gave to me

And it all took its toll

You become so cold

You forget what you were born to be

What ever happened to the fall of Rome?

Those people all turned to ashes and stone

Its a trick of the mind when you think it won’t end

Its a contest with time

And time always wins

I saw a picture of you the other day

In your wedding dress

And wondered why I’d walked away

Like I had with the rest

The only thing that was worth saving

And I swear that I did my best

And sometimes at night

I dream of you now

In your wedding dress

And I hope it doesn’t seem somehow

Like I gave you less

I have nothing to show

From these years on the road

But these songs that I wrote you
