KINGS OF LEON


Revelry Lyrics

What a night for a dance, you know I'm a dancing machine
With a fire in my bones and the sweet taste of kerosene
I get lost in the night so high I don't want to come down
To face the loss of the good thing that I've found

In the dark of the night I could hear you calling my name
With the hardest of hearts I still feel full of pain
So I drink and I smoke and I ask you if you're ever around
Even though it was me who drove us right in the ground

See the time we shared it was precious to me
But all the while I was dreaming of revelry

Born to run, baby run like a stream down a mountainside
With the wind in my back I don't ever even bat an eye
Just know it was you all along who had a hold of my heart
But the demon and me were the best of friends from the start

So the time we shared it was precious to me
All the while I was dreaming of revelry
Dreaming of revelry

And I told myself boy away you go, it rained so hard it felt like snow
Everything came tumbling down on me
In the back of the woods in the dark of the night
Paleness of the old moonlight everything just felt so incomplete

Dreaming of revelry
Dreaming of revelry
Dreaming of revelry
Dreaming of revelry

I think it means he found the love of his life but couldnt hold on because he was battling a demon a.k.a depression, low self esteem or drugs etc..

Just like the runner, this song is about Jesus. Even though he knows that He is real, he dosent follow God

this song is most definetly about finding a special someone but giving them up to be by themself. but at the end everything felt so incomplete

I believe this song is about someone that is in love with another but unable to stay in the relationship because of an addiction that is pulling him under

Perfect way to describe someone who knows what is best for them, but chooses the other path.... not being ready for the right person... meeting the love of your life and choosing not to pursue.

I just looked up revelry and it means boisterous festivity and celebration. I agree with Chop but I read a little more into it. I think he's talking about having an addiction and having no control.

Revelry means to party and have a good time. So what he is essentially singing about in this song is being in love, but not being ready to give up the fun or partying and he walked away. I can relate.
