When In Rome.

When In Rome.

Here in Rome,
You’re on my mind,
People all around,
Drifting thru’ time,
They seem to be,
Happy this way,
No one they need,
Outside this place,

When in Rome,
Do as they do,
When at home,
Let love be true,
But I cannot seem,
To forget the truth,
When in Rome,
I still love you,

The girls all dance,
The guys all swing,
My heart endures,
Thru’ everything,
Here in the mix,
I’m so alone,
For those who live,
Outside my soul,

When in Rome,
Do as they do,
When at home,
Let love be true,
But I cannot seem,
To forget the truth,
When in Rome,
I still love you,

There’s no moral obligation,
That I lean on to be true,
There’s nothing here in Rome,
Just the memories of you,

And that’s enough,
Nothing but love,

When in Rome,
Do as they do,
When at home,
Let love be true,
But I cannot seem,
To forget the truth,
When in Rome,
I still love you,

O’, when at home,
Or here, in Rome,
Or wherever I may go,

O’, when in Rome,
I still love you.
