Foy Vance – Roman Attack Lyrics

We fell out by the side of the road
I came in like a roman attack
Or a train off the track
You were taken aback
I was there for sharing the load
I was there for taking the slack
When your spirit was lacking
And your soul was feeling shackled up

I was there to help the story unfold
But I ended up a thorn in your side
With my prickling pride
And inarticulate drive
All you wanted was a glimmer of hope
I exploded like a splitting of Atoms
Even Eve couldn’t fathom
How we shrugged it off as happenstance

It’s hard to see it now but I remember once upon a time
There was a world then there was you and I
Never dreamed we could be anything less than alright
Until the night when I tried to pick a fight
No apology could every make it be alright
We’re still alive, I still apologize
All you ever really wanted to see in my eyes
Was a little life to illuminate and empathize

I was shouting in the street, I recall
You were armadillo in full effect
Simply trying to protect
All the space that he left
You said, “Didn’t you hear about the call
You’re bombarding me with previous lovers
And then devious brothers
Like everything means nothing at all”

It’s hard to see it now but I remember once upon a time
There was a world then there was you and I
Never dreamed we could be anything less than alright
Until the night when I tried to pick a fight
No apology could every make it be alright
We’re still alive, I still apologize
All you ever really wanted to see in my eyes
Was a little life to illuminate and empathize

It’s hard to see it now but I remember once upon a time
There was a world then there was you and I
Never dreamed we could be anything less than alright
Until the night when I tried to pick a fight
No apology could every make it be alright
We’re still alive, I still apologize
All you ever really wanted to see in my eyes
Was a little life to illuminate and empathize
