Abandoned, scared; I almost didn’t see him
Soaked to the bone underneath a wheeliebin
I picked him up, my hands inside my coatsleeves
I called him love and love came to stay with me

First I was scared ‘cos love was acting strangely
I brushed his hair; I guess that’s when love bit me
Made him a bed down by my washing machine
Out of a towel and a box of polystyrene

Weeks turned to months and me and love were doing fine
My flat got wrecked; we lived on chocolate and red wine

And then one day I called for him as I got home
And I found love, sobbing gently by the phone
“I don’t understand” he said, “but this is how it has to be”
And so it was I set my love free
