Itch – Homeless Romantic lyrics

For the homeless romantic
This one's for the homeless romantic

Used to stay up late giving yourtake on philosophy
Now it's like everything you say's lost on me
Remember when we used to fight aristocracy?
You knew the whole 'Flash Dance' choreography
Since you started seeing him you've changed
We never see you anymore it ain't the same
You never come out, you never see your mates
And when we arrange it he tells you to stay
You don't have to do that for his sake
Believe I know you're sick of seeing your heart break
But some they swore that since he was born
He attracts rats like magnets as crackheads all swarm
And there's so many rats in London
7.5 million rats in London
Never more that 10 metres from rats in London
Even the great fire of London couldn't burn them

May we know that all we know is; we know nothing at all
And when we fall may we dust ourselves off and sneak in through the back door
For the homeless romantic, this one's for the homeless romantic
Sing one for the homeless romantic, this one's for the homeless romantic

He ain't worth the dirt stuck between your toes
No he ain't worth the hurt that I know you've known
It ain't worth waiting for him to propose
Cos he just proposes that you don't go
Now he's got you down on your knees
Stinking up of booze every time he breathes
You don't want to stay but you're too scared to leave
And if you come home with no dough he won't be pleased
So take the money walk back into the breeze
As your skinny legs start to quiver and freeze
Couples looking at you like you're a disease
But they could never survive they way you've been aggrieved
It's a bad hand no matter how hard you try
But losing hope is something you were born to defy
You keep insisting he's a nice guy
Even bought you make up to cover up your black eye

May we know that all we know is; we know nothing at all
And when we fall may we dust ourselves off and sneak in through the back door
For the homeless romantic, this one's for the homeless romantic
Sing one for the homeless romantic, this one's for the homeless romantic

You come a long way since your youth
Your soft skin is now rugged and bruised
And you smile don't contain a tooth
Old photographs don't seem like the truth
Cos you're showing the signs of abuse
Covered in tracks after years of use
Over time, the fear's reduced
The grit in your eyes is proof
What don't break us make us damaged
Yeah it's savage, but fuck it we manage
It takes more to make us incapable
We're invincible, that's inescapable
Achieve the unthinkable fast
Refuse to be defined by your past
So let us all stand up and raise your glass

For the homeless romantic
This one's for the homeless romantic
Sing one for the homeless romantic

May we know that all we know is; we know nothing at all
This one's for the homeless romantic
And when we fall may we dust ourselves off and sneak in through the back door
This one's for the homeless romantic

May we know that all we know is; we know nothing at all
This one's for the homeless romantic
And when we fall may we dust ourselves off and sneak in through the back door
This one's for the homeless romantic
