Romeo Soul

Romeo Soul lyrics 

Well back in High School

You smiled while listening to a rapper

Cleverly rhyme his way to fame

Now you hear that same song
And sadly shake your head
What changed?

I know it’s natural to grow apart
But why do you stare at me
Like I’m stained?

Oh Romeo Soul
We’ve got to get you back on a roll
All your senses sunk below
You are a shadow swimming against the flow

We were kids once remember?
And you ran ahead of the group
So adventurous

Now you nurse a broken heart
And cater to a misled mind
Buddy, you are delirious

Setting up fences before your door
Wondering if art is expendable
When did your ego get so serious?

Oh Romeo Soul
We’ve got to get you back on a roll
All your senses sunk below
You are a shadow swimming against the flow

You loved that girl
And she broke your heart
It was years ago

You wrote her letters
She never replied half the time
It’s so painful, I know

You are quitting without admitting
That life can still be beautiful
Without her in the picture show

Oh Romeo Soul
We’ve got to get you back on a roll
All your senses sunk below
You are a shadow swimming against the flow
