Your heart is not prepared for Dermot Kennedy and “Moments Passed”

1267

If you’ve never heard a voice so full of passion and life it made you stop in your tracks prepare to have your life changed. Dermot Kennedy is a fast-rising vocalist with millions of plays online and next to know attention from the mainstream music business. That, however, will probably change once the world is exposed to his new single, “Moments Passed”.

Anyone who has ever been in love knows the pain of moving on. The realization that things we once put everything into no longer matters can be crushing, but we each must find a way to move forward. We have to learn to appreciate the moments we shared with those now gone from our lives and accept the fact they may not look back with the same fondness we do on those days now long gone. That is easier said than done of course, which is the idea Kennedy is able to capture on “Moments Passed”. You can stream the song, in full, above.

As far as I’m concerned “Moments Passed” deserves to be committed to memory. Take a moment and learn the words:

[Verse 1]
Maybe it’s all down to the thought of her
Maybe it’s all down to the loss we learned
Knew for a long time, for all it’s worth
I wanted to run to you
What if I’m caught up on it’s me you’re calling
What if I’m lost now, plus if demons come in
When she kissed me I felt a new freedom or something (well)
Move on
I found a moment to be brave, so I let her know
And she said, “how could I love you back, you who dropped your dreams in the gutter,”
In my winter, she’ll be burning slow
Feels like December knows me well

[Chorus]
‘Cause I loved ya
Does that mean nothing to you now?
I loved ya
Get me back on homely ground
She said, “oh I know that love is all about the wind
How it can hold me up and kill me in the end,”
Still I loved it
Does that mean nothing to you now?

[Verse 2]
Days when we all watched ’till we lost the birds
Threw a rose in, ’till it caught the turn
Knew it felt right, we were bound to burn
I wanted to run to you
Maybe I’ve lost count of the rooms you’re tall in
Maybe I’ve lost count of the nighttime all ins
So the trees and her were first to know
It’ll all be good, just hold me well

[Chorus]
‘Cause I loved ya
Does that mean nothing to you now?
I loved ya
Get me back on homely ground
She said, “oh I know that love is all about the wind
How it can hold me up and kill me in the end,”
Still I loved it
Does that mean nothing to you now?

[Bridge]
Wasn’t easy to go, I know
You shouldn’t have no seat in the front row
I know, I know
Wasn’t easy to go, I know
And the sun came out, day late though
I know, I know
Wasn’t easy to go, I know
He pulled up, flat tyres, ten spokes
I know I know
Wasn’t easy to go, I know
He came all that way just to say hello
I know, I know

[Chorus]
‘Cause I loved ya
Does that mean nothing to you now?
I loved ya
Get me back on homely ground
She said, “oh I know that love is all about the wind
How it can hold me up and kill me in the end,”
Still I loved it
Does that mean nothing to you now?
