kentish town waltz lyrics – imelda may

do you remember we traipsed around
from pub to pound shop through kentish town
only a fiver to our name
the drunk on the doorstep had more to our shame
living over the offy had its trials
the fights all night out there and inside
and those stews that lasted three days into four
and those dreadful bailiffs return to our door

but we stuck with each other with all our might
we pulled it together ans held on tight
and i’m glad for us, yeah i’m glad mo chroi
but its nothing to anyone cept you and me
there are wrongs for every right, theres ups & theres downs
but you’re the one for all my life
my true love i have found, yeah you my love i found

i watched the moon cover the might of the sun
that weird evening light at a quarter past one
and i knew in my head as you lay in our bed
that you’d stay in my heart till the day i was dead
we killed each other then loved in time
and laughed till we almost cried
yeah we cried as well when it all went to h*ll
and my heart it broke till i swear it died

but we stuck with each other with all our might
we pulled it together ans held on tight
and i’m glad for us, yeah i’m glad mo chroi
but its nothing to anyone cept you and me
there are wrongs for every right, theres ups & theres downs
but you’re the one for all my life
my true love i have found, yeah you my love i found

oh you’re good at the things that i’m hopeless at
and i noticed what you ignore
but its when i see you’re not perfect for me
its then i love you more & more…

and we stuck with each other with all our might
we pulled it together ans held on tight
and i’m glad for us, yeah i’m glad mo chroi
but its nothing to anyone cept you and me
there are wrongs for every right, theres ups & theres downs
but you’re the one for all my life
my true love i have found, yeah you my love i found
ohhh there are wrongs for every right, theres ups & theres downs
but you’re the one for all my life
my true love i have found, yeah you my love i found
