Whatever happened to the fall of Rome
What a strange thing to ask when I was taking you home
As we walked alone through the parking lot
I said I don't have much, you said I like what you got

And I'd be lying if I said I didn't picture you then in your wedding dress
And the days I hoped we'd some day spend in our Sunday best
We were light as a flame
Both bat shit insane
We were lost, but we were just the same

Whatever happened to the fall of Rome
You were a mystery to me, but the place felt like home
And there are no rules when you're falling in love
You just take what you get, and you hope it's enough

And I'd be lying if I said I didn't picture you then in your wedding dress
And the days I hoped we'd some day spend in our Sunday best
We were wrong from the start
With our broken arms
You played your role, and I played my part

And the road was so long
I was never as strong
As the love that you gave to me
And it all took it's toll
You become so cold
You forget what you were born to be

Whatever happened to the fall of Rome
Those people all turned to ashes and stone
It's a trick of the mind when you think it won't end
it's a contest with time that time always wins

I saw a picture of you the other day in your wedding dress
And I wondered why I'd walked away like I had with the rest
You were the only thing
That was worth saving
And I swear I did my best

And sometimes at night I dream of you now in your wedding dress
And I hope it doesn't seem somehow like I gave you less
I have nothing to show
From these years on the road
But these songs that I wrote for you
