Catherine McGrath – Talk Of This Town

Catherine McGrath - Talk Of This Town

Never did fit in
Always the one left out
Just the girl at the back
You never gave a damn about
Tough growing up
When they shoot you down
But I knew someday someway
It was all about just getting out

Then I turned eighteen
Said "I'm gonna sing"
Packed my bags and they laughed
Said "you'll never be anything"

Well, talk of the town
That's what I am now
Hear them whispering about the dreams I have
Behind my back
I'm just the girl with her head in the clouds
Feet off the ground, I'm going up, no, I won't come down
So I'll keep walking, you'll keep talking
I'll move on and still be the talk of this town

Well, the word got back
And it wasn't so good
The city scared me a little more
Than I thought it would
They said "I told you so"
"We knew it wouldn't last"
But I'm not crying to my mama
I'm doing what I wanna
Bet you weren't expecting that, yeah

Talk of the town
That's what I am now
Hear them whispering about the dreams I have
Behind my back
I'm just the girl with her head in the clouds
Feet off the ground, I'm going up, no, I won't come down
So I'll keep walking, you'll keep talking
I'll move on and still be the talk of this town

One day I might be on your TV screen
Smiling in your magazine
The last thing that you ever thought you'd see is me, yeah

The talk of the town
That's what I am now
Hear them whispering about the dreams I have
Behind my back
I'm just the girl with her head in the clouds
Feet off the ground, I'm going up, no, I won't come down
So I'll keep walking, you'll keep talking
I'll move on and still be the talk of this town

Talk of the town
That's what I am now
Hear them whispering about the dreams I have
Behind my back
I'm just the girl with her head in the clouds
Feet off the ground, I'm going up, no, I won't come down
So I'll keep walking, you'll keep talking
I'll move on and still be the talk of this town

The talk of this town
So I'll keep walking, you'll keep talking
I'll move on and still be the talk of this town
