Lyrics

Walking on the desert sand, dreaming as my heart desires,
Looking to the sky, looking for you everywhere.
Could it be I’m lost in time, sitting by this open fire,
Thinking ‘bout the days when you and I were all there was.

It gets so crazy when I feel this way,
I try to understand it, I tell myself

This is not Rome, and we are not so innocent,
That time has passed, it did not last, this is not Rome.
This is not Rome, so why do I keep coming back,
It lingers on, what was is gone, this is not Rome.

Out upon the open road, heading for some destination,
Where do I begin, why can’t I just let it go?
Searching for a love I had, here without an invitation,
To pacify the heart, I’m willing to ignore the pain.

It gets so crazy when I feel this way,
I try to understand it, I tell myself

This is not Rome, and we are not so innocent,
That time has passed, it did not last, this is not Rome.
This is not Rome, so why do I keep coming back,
It lingers on, what was is gone, this is not Rome.

It gets so crazy when I feel this way,
I try to understand it, I tell myself

This is not Rome, and we are not so innocent,
That time has passed, it did not last, this is not Rome.
This is not Rome, so why do I keep coming back,
It lingers on, what was is gone, this is not Rome.

This is not, this is not Rome

Been on the streets every day and night, been everywhere you’d go,
I’m lost inside this city, where I’m searching high and low.
I can’t sleep, can’t think, can’t stop myself, I’ve got one thing on my mind.
I’ve gotta find my way to that place again, and the love I left behind

This is not, this is not Rome
