about

Thoughtful stuff from Harry about compromises and dilemmas – about growing up, what to lose and what to keep

lyrics

Wednesdays are my favourite form of modesty
They often pass unnoticed between the borders of the week
Wake up in the morning scream ‘Where has it gone?’
You lose yourself like you’re the opposite of strong
But I pretend that I chose my rights
And I pretend not to tap out three times
But I gave in
To protect my pride I gave in
To the honeyed lies
But I - I won’t run from this house we built from stone
And I - I won’t run from this house we built from stone
And sometimes I go mess around just to prove I can
I’m willing and I’m able, at least I think I am
In twenty years they’re sure that I’ll forget today
So why the hell should I mind if it turns out ok?
But I pretend not to be defined
By how I spend hours nine through five
But in the end
For an alibi I gave in
To the honeyed lies
But I - I won’t run from this house we built from stone
And I - I won’t run from this house we built from stone
Without my mother’s organising
Rigorous and binding
To futures I don’t need
Because I love improvising
Dancing between the lines
I know I will never read
‘Cos if the sky is really falling
Aren’t we all just stalling
Before the final piece?
And no roof of granite tiles
is gonna stop it finding
Stop it finding me
But I won’t run from this house we built from stone
And I – I won’t run from this house we built from stone
