There's a good tradition of love and hate staying by the fireside
There's a good tradition of love and hate staying by the fireside

And though the rain may fall your father's calling you
You still feel safe inside
And though your ma's too proud your brother's ignoring you
You still feel safe inside

Oh, was this solo?
Was this yesterday?
Was this true for you?
'cause while all the rest have taken time
This didn't do a lot for you

And the corners laced with memories
