All the other girls here are stars?you are the Northern Lights
They try to shine in through your curtains you're too close and too bright
They try and they try but everything that they do
Is the ghost of a trace of a pale imitation of you

  • these lyrics are ridiculously amazing!
  • Not a big fan of this spare, downbeat version - give me the power and the emotion of the original any day.
  • "Wurlitzer". "Treliss". Mr. Ritter achieves transcendence through vocabulary.
  • Ugh. <3 Killer line: "Every heart is a package tangled up in knots someone else tied."
  • listening to this song makes me not hate my parents so much for choosing kathleen as my middle name.
  • I know you are waiting and I know that it is not for me_but I'm here and I'm ready and I've saved you the passenger seat
  • This song on Live at Vicar Street is a religious experience.
  • I love the song "Kathleen". It's a cute throwback to one's teenage years--all sweet and hormones and excitement--and it makes me cry too. Well done.
  • I'll be yours for a song..........sad and so true!
  • Yes, please.
