  • Do you remember we traipsed around
    From pub to pound shop up through Kentish Town
    Only a fiver to our name,
    The drunk on the doorstep had more to our shame
    Living over the office had its trials
    The fights all night out there and inside
    And those stews that lasted three days into four
    And the dreaded bailiffs returned to our door,

    But we stuck with each other with all our might,
    We pulled it together and held on tight,
    And I'm glad for us yeah I'm glad mo chroi
    But it's nothing to anyone 'cept you and me
    There were wrongs for every right,
    There's ups and there's 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,
    The weird eerie light at a quarter past one,
    And I knew in my head as I lay in my bed
    That you'd stay in my heart til the day I was dead,
    We killed each other and loved in time,
    And laughed til we almost cried,
    Yeah we cried as well when it all went to Hell,
    And my heart it broke til I swear it died

    But we stuck with each other with all our might,
    We pulled it together and held on tight,
    And I'm glad for us yeah I'm glad mo chroi
    But it's nothing to anyone except you and me
    There were wrongs for every right,
    There's ups and 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
    I'm hopeless at and I notice what you ignore
    But it's when I see you're not perfect for me,
    Its then I love you more and more,

    And we stuck with each other with all our might,
    We pulled it together and held real tight,
    And I'm glad for us, I'm glad mo chroi
    But it's nothing to anyone except you and me
    There were wrongs for every right,
    There's ups and there's downs
    But you're the one for all my life,
    My true love I have found, yeah you my love I found

    Ooh ooh

    There were wrongs for every right,
    There's ups and there's downs
    But you're the one for all my life,
    My true love I have found, yeah you my love I found Writer/s: IMELDA MARY HIGHAM
