This one’s for the homeless romantic

You stare, stay up late giving your take on philosophy

Now it’s like everything you say is lost on me

Remember when we used to fight every 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

Or when we arrange he tells you to stay

You don’t have to do that for his sake

Believe I know your sick of seeing your heart break

But some say they swore, since you were born

You attract rats just like magnets, as crack heads who swore

And there so many rats in London, 7.5 million rats in London

Never more than 10 meters 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 through the backdoor

For the homeless romantic

This ones for the homeless romantic

Sing one for the homeless romantic

He ain’t worth the dirt stuck between your toes

He ain’t worth the hurt that I know you’ve known

It’s ain’t worth waiting for him to propose

Cause he just proposes that you don’t go

And now he’s got you down on your knees

Stinking up a bruise every time he breathes

You don’t want to stay, but you’re too scared to leave

If you come home with no though 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 the way you’ve been ablrieved

It’s a bad habit no matter how you try

Losing hope is something you’ve been born to defy

You keep in siting he’s a nice guy

Even bought you makeup 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 through the backdoor

For the homeless romantic

This ones for the homeless romantic

Sing one for the homeless romantic

You’ve come a long way since your youth

Your soft skin is now ragged and bruised

And your smile doesn’t contain a tooth

Old photographs don’t seem like the truth

Cause you’re showing the signs of abuse

Covered in tracks after years of use

Overtime the fear is reduced

The grit in your eyes is proof

What don’t break us makes 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 ones 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 through the backdoor (this one’s for the homeless romantic)
