All My Friends - Dermot Kennedy

A thief in the night came
Took everything you gave for her
But this song isn't low, lady
It's remembering love made in the summer

But I think of the things that it taught me
I learned that there's beauty I can't keep
Learned that there's demons in stories
So letting her down, no I won't be
Whenever she's calling she'll call me
Angry and seething as the sea
Songs in cathedrals in month three
Promise you'll smile off a memory

And I, I, I
I couldn't stop smiling like the whole way home
And yeah it should feel like something you were missing

To all my friends
You'll find your way
Some summer night I hope I see you again

All my friends
I'd love to stay
Some summer night I hope I see you again

Looking up lately
The moon doesn't chase me no more
Before it was child like
Lost in the soft light, and so on

And I, I, I
I couldn't stop smiling like the whole way home
And yeah it should be when she read out all she'd written

To all my friends
You'll find your way
Some summer night I hope I see you again

All my friends
I'd love to stay
Some summer night I hope I see you again

The smell of rain and streetlight thrown
A love, a lantern in the snow
But when she feels it taking hold
She finds it so hard letting go
How can I tell her that we'll shine?
She dreads the devil's yet to show
So damn reluctant to expose it to me, so

So I think of the things that it taught me
She starts to think "evil has lost me"
I walked with the wolves and it haunts me
She steps with intention to run free
So stunner don't ever move softly
You've been on a journey they can't see
When dancing in ballrooms, you will lead
Promise you'll smile off a memory

And I, I, I
I couldn't stop smiling like the whole way home
And yeah it should feel like something you were missing

To all my friends
You'll find your way
Some summer night I hope I see you again

All my friends
I'd love to stay
Some summer night I hope I see you again

The smell of rain and streetlight thrown
A love, a lantern in the snow
But when she feels it taking hold
She finds it so hard letting go
How can I tell her that we'll shine?
She dreads the devil's yet to show
