The ideal girl
In London from France
Came over then left me
She left me entranced
Now I have to get by
Once again on my own
Nothing but memories

So I remember your eyes in that fine shade of brown
While these blue eyes of mine they stay closed
I kissed you goodbye on the M109
I choked as I watched the bus go

I'm choking and smoking to your angelic soul
I'm choking and smoking myself into a hole
Where the only way out is to sleep and to dream
And to cry out your name

    General CommentThis song almost made me smash the screen when i first heard it. Luckily it grew on me. It's Carl singing about an old girlfriend... "choking and smoking myself into a hole" particularly got me.

    General CommentI love this song, it's the hidden one their 'The Libertines' album. It's so sweet and sad. Poor Carl!

    General CommentYeah and his voice is pure sexy. You need a few slow meaningful acoustics stuck in here and there from your favourite band!

    General CommentI love the Legs XI demo of this song the most, with Carl lighting up a fag and the random Pete intro/Carl outbursts.

    Laaaaaaaadiesss and Geeeeeentlemeeen, Carlos Barat with his self penned contemporary ballad classic.......
