well, i gave you rome but you gave it back
you said, you didn't like the weather
i laughed aloud as we made wedding plans
cause in i knew that you meant every word
when i broke your nose, boy, you still looked good...
it was hard enough sleeping with the door closed
i'm older now, but i'm no better than i was
when you still let me hold you

i will not touch you in the dark
if i cannot love you in the daylight
oh i refuse to keep mine hid
i said i refuse to keep mine hid

well, you gave me rome, but i gave it back
we both knew i couldn't stay there
you laughed aloud as we made wedding plans
but in i prayed that you meant every word
when you broke my nose, i must have looked the fool
it was bad enough sleeping with our backs turned
i'm older now, but i'm no better than i was
when you, still let me hold you...

and i will not touch in the dark
if i cannot love you in the daylight
oh i refuse to keep mine hid

    MemoryI saw this in Louisville when Royal Family presented with Conor O'berst -- the live version is tennnnn times more beautiful than the recorded version, with Z making a really amazing performance! This song would definitely be half as gorgeous as it is if it wasn't for her vocals. IMHO, Michael Runion should keep his cousin around and in more of the music.
