Catherine McGrath – Talk Of This Town Lyrics

[Verse 1] 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

[Pre-Chorus] Then I turned eighteen
Said “I’m gonna sing”
Packed my bags and they laughed
Said “you’ll never be anything”

[Chorus] 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

[Verse 2] 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

[Chorus] 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

[Bridge] 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

[Chorus] 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

[Outro] 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
