Lyrics for the day – Pompeii

Saw a locally based a cappella group last night. Five male voices and one does base/drums/rhythm with vocal tricks. They’re called FACE and you should definitely see them if you get the chance. They did a cover of a favorite tune from Dr. Reptile’s Greatest Hits 2014

I was left to my own devices
Many days fell away with nothing to show
 
And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above
 
But if you close your eyes
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all
And if you close your eyes
Does it almost feel like
You’ve been here before
How am I gonna be an optimist about this
How am I gonna be an optimist about this
 
We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
In your pose as the dust settled around us
 
And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above
 
But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all
And if you close your eyes
Does it almost feel like
You’ve been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this
How am I gonna be an optimist about this
 
Oh where do we begin
The rubble or our sins
Oh oh where do we begin
The rubble or our sins
 
And the walls kept tumbling down (oh where do we begin?)
In the city that we love (the rubble or our sins?)
Great clouds roll over the hills (oh where do we begin?)
Bringing darkness from above (the rubble or our sins?)
 
But if you close your eyes
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all
And if you close your eyes
Does it almost feel like
You’ve been here before
How am I gonna be an optimist about this
How am I gonna be an optimist about this
 
If you close your eyes
Does it almost feel like nothing changed at all
