Kings of Leon – Revelry

If you’ve not noticed by now, I’m going through a Kings of Leon phase. After the amazing show they put on a few weeks ago and their great CD “Only By The Night” it’s hard not to love their music. This album has been spinning in my iPod for what seems like months now. Highly recommend it.

Regardless, this song speaks about a guy who met a great girl, but he was not done with his partying ways and through it all he still thinks of her all the time. Good stuff!

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 wanna come down.
To face the loss
Of the good thing that I have found.

Woo hoo hoooo
Woo hoo hoooo

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 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 in my back
I wont ever even bat an eye.
Just know it was you all along
That had a hold of my heart
But the demon and me
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,
Oh the way you go.
It rained so hard,
It felt like snow.
Everything came tumbling down on me.
In the back of the woods,
It was dark as night
Palest pale,
Of the old moonlight
Everything just felt so incomplete.

Dreaming of revelry
