There is a good tradition of love and hate stayin' by the fireside
There's a good tradition of love and hate stayin' by the fireside
An' though the rain may fall, your father's calling you
You still feel safe inside
An' 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 mean a lot for you

And the corners laced with memories
Tell you how it used to be
Your mother smiles, the children play
And all the bad things happen miles away
And strong feelings never bother you
You hold your head up while the rest of us try to

Oh, call the stations
Call the people
We all wanna know
'Cause while all the rest have taken time, you don't wanna know

Well, there's a good tradition of love and hate stayin' by the fireside
There's a good tradition of love and hate stayin' by the fireside
An' though the rain may fall, your father's calling you
You still feel safe inside
An' 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 of all the choices you have made, this didn't do a lot for you
