Far past these roads there is a place
Where all of our precious dreams remain
Someday I know I’ll find a way
To keep myself from holding on
Stay awake with the sound of my voice
I'm restless from the silence in the air
I want to be somewhere I can see the roads
A place where every time you breathe a wish comes true
I want to be where love is real
And memories of distant days come to life again
Inside this room, time will stand still
As long as I'm not aware of changes
The world outside leaves me behind by myself
It shows no mercy for those who hold on

Still awake with the sound of my voice
I’m restless for the silence in the air
I want to be somewhere I can see the roads
A place where every time you breathe a wish comes true
I want to be where love is real
And memories of distant days come to life again

Far past these roads there is a place
Where all of our precious dreams remain
Someday I know
I’ll find a way
To keep myself from holding on

I want to be somewhere I can see the roads
A place where every time you breathe a wish comes true
I want to be where love is real
And memories of distant days come to life again

    General CommentThis is by far my favorite Daphne Loves Derby song, if not my favorite song altogether. I don't think it has anything to do with any particular love. He is just desperately crying out hoping that love is possible, that it can be real. He wants all the pure and innocent beliefs he held as a child to turn out to be true, even though since he has grown up the world has taught him to believe otherwise. He wants to escape from this world of monotony and banality and go back to his most primary feelings where anything was possible, where the things he has held most dear are all in existence without fault. When I heard this it felt like my story, like if I could write well that this is what I would write, straight from the heart. Thank you, Kenny.

    General CommentDang, why have only two people commented on this? This is one of their most amazing songs...
    This song can mean so many things. It seems like he's sort of of holding on to past places/times
    "And memories of distant days come to life again..." All those beautiful things he described really did exist before, and he wants them back. I think this song easily adapts to fit your own life: high school memories, old friends, old love, your hometown. Basically just the *exact moments* in your life when you feel things are fufilling. For me, it totally reminds me of camp

    General Commenthe misses the past. the way things used to be. great musicianship. piano and his voice sound great. one thing i dont i get is he says 'stay awake with sound of my voice' but how can you? it's sooo soothing.

    General Commenti pretty much second everything everyone has already said.... it makes me think so deeply about things. it's like my "thinking song" haha. everything about it just screams out talent, and his words are so true.

    General Commentthis was the first DLD song i ever heard, too! i love them.

    i think he pretty much longs for the past, for a time where everything was perfect, love was real. also, i think he's struggling for closure, to move on - "someday i know i'll find a way to keep myself from holding on."

    pretty much, DLD brings the i-wish-we-could-go-back song to perfection.
