Victory

lyrics

We both know that I curse and I swear
My way through every day
And I lose my patience with
You and the kids
But please don’t mistake my curses for wishes
That you would change

Given half a chance to do it all again I would
Given half a chance to do it all again I would

I am the undefeated champion of under-appreciation
But I try to treasure every day with you
I have failed to set the world alight
I have failed to put the world to rights
But I know my victory is you

Given half a chance to do it all again I would
Given half a chance to do it all again I would
Given half a chance to do it all again I would

Every pipe band marching past
The humming underneath our flat
The starlings nesting in our roof
The godless evenings demanding proof
Every cry in every night
When I was wrong and you were right
Given half a chance to do it all again I would
