Winter coming Winter push on (push on) Oh, winter push on
Winter is so long Winter moves on
The last night on Maudlin Street Goodbye house, goodbye stairs I was born here And I was raised here, and ...I took some stick here
Love at first sight It may sound trite But it's true, you know I could list the detail Of everything you ever wore or said Or how you stood the day As we spent the last night On Maudlin Street "Goodbye house, forever!" I never stole a happy hour Around here
Where the world's ugliest boy Became what you see Here I am - the ugliest man Oh, the last night on Maudlin Street Truly I do love you Oh, truly I do love you
When I sleep With that picture of you framed beside my bed Oh, it's childish and it's silly But I think it's you in my room, by the bed (...yes, I told you it was silly...)
And I know I took strange pills But I never meant to hurt you Oh, truly I love you Came home late one night Everyone had gone to bed But, you know No-one stays up for you I had sixteen stitches All around my head
Oh, the last bus I missed to Maudlin Street So he drove me home in the Van Complaining, "Women only like me for my mind..." Don't leave your torch behind A powercut ahead; 1972, you know
And so we crept through the park No, I cannot steal a pair of jeans off a clothesline For you But you...without clothes Oh, I could not keep a straight face Me - without clothes? Well, a nation turns its back and gags... I'm packed
I am moving house A half-life disappears today With "every hand waves me on" (secretly wishing me gone) Well, I will be soon Ooh, I will be soon I will be soon I will be soon Will be soon, I will be soon Mmm...I will be soon, I will be soon
There were bad times on Maudlin Street They took you away in a police car Inspector - don't you know? Don't you care? Don't you know - about love?
Your gran died And your mother died On Maudlin Street In pain, and ashamed With never time to say Those special things...oh I took the key from Maudlin Street Well, it's only bricks and mortar! Oh, oh, truly I love you Oh, wherever you are Wherever you are Wherever you are I hope you're singing now Oh, I do hope I hope you're singing now Oh...
