‘Valentine Street’ takes its name from the street where Kendall lived growing up, in Auckland’s Papakura.

“The song is about how you can be any kind of person from any kind of street in any kind of town and you will have a story of heartbreak or sadness that you often only share with a select few,” Kendall says.

The self-penned song was recorded at Auckland’s famed Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studios in Auckland and is the second single from Kendall’s soon-to-be-released Red Earth.


Red down one end and blue down the other
They’re of the same world but won’t call each other brother
Here they are living by their own laws
Heat to heat
Down Valentine Street

She’ll borrow your things but you’ll never get them back
She was born 10 metres from the right side of the tracks
Every day she makes up for what she lacks
Living week to week
Down Valentine Street

He gets home one night late from work
Tries to rest his weary head
But instead they fight
Hurt upon hurt
And still that Devil’s making the world go ‘round
Heartbeat to heartbeat
Down Valentine Street

It’s a never-ending race to the bottom of the glass
And you can’t quite remember the last time a hit lasted
Now you’re down looking for your next up
Sleep to sleep
Down Valentine Street
Week to week
Down Valentine Street
Heartbeat to heartbeat
Down Valentine Street
Valentine Street, Valentine Street
