Catfish and The Bottlemen - Kathleen

You're simpatico
And of all the lift homes and all the mixed feelings
You're cuts above
And you don't own worries or a chest full of heartache
Yes I Know
That I'll never work out exactly how you­'re thinking
But let me know when I'm needed home


And I'd come
You can leather me with your lips

I've gotta give it to you
You give me problems
When you are not in the mood
I've gotta give it to you
You give me problems
And made me give in to you
Her dealer hates me you know
He used to see her but she sold
Him off on down the river

It's impractical
To go out and catch a death with a dress­ fit for the summer
So she don't
Instead she calls me up with a head full­ of filth
Yes I know
I'll never acquiesce anything I'm thinking
But let me know when I'm needed home

And I'd come
You can leather me with your lips

I've gotta give it to you
You give me problems
When you are not in the mood
I've gotta give it to you
You give me problems
And made me give in to you
Her dealer hates me you know
He used to see her but she sold
Him off on down the river

The most popular single from Welsh rock band Catfish and the Bottlemen's debut album "The Balcony". Lead singer Van McCann described the meaning behind "Kathleen" in an interview with Steve Lamacq as: "It's about being infatuated with somebody, but in a bad way. You know, the person you call when you're tanked up and you know it's over and you know you don't get on...and you're always fighting, but something keeps bringing you back no matter how much it drives you crazy."
