Bermondsey Street

Album: Lupercalia (2011)
  • She kisses him on Bermondsey Street and
    Rises high on the balls of her feet
    Declares this the greatest love of the century

    He fumbles for a wedding ring
    She's no, no clone from Vogue Magazine
    She is complex in all her complexions
    Love is here to heal

    And I'm so proud of you
    But now you must too
    Take pride with what this love you do

    He kisses him on Bermondsey Street and
    Standing brave on the balls of his feet
    Declares this the greatest love of the century

    He fumbles for a wedding ring
    He's no, no clone from Colt magazines
    He is complex in all his complexions
    Love is here to heal

    And I'm so proud of you
    Now you must too
    Take pride with what this love you do

    Now you know, love knows no boundaries
    Sees beyond sexuality
    Holds the sun in the palm of its hand
    And laughs down the cynical man

    Hear what I say, hear what I see
    Two kisses sweet on Bermondsey Street

    Regardless of religion
    Braver than any faith
    No fear of society
    Evolves you and me

    Love, whoa
    Two kisses sweet on Bermondsey Street now
    Two kisses sweet
    Two kisses sweet on Bermondsey Street now

    And two kisses sweet on Bermondsey Street now
    Two kisses sweet on Bermondsey Street Writer/s: PATRICK WOLF
