THE HOMESTEAD

about

Musings on being a bit of a nightmare to get to know. But also on perseverance and hope. And DIY.

Produced and arranged by the uber-talented Natural Self. Here he is doing his own thing - naturalself.bandcamp.com. Ouch!

lyrics

The bell did go
Yeah you rang it all the time.
But I'd seldom shown
A soul around this dilapidated heart of mine.

Finally with apologies I prized open the door,
And warned you you'd to mind your step 'cause the boards were loose on every floor.

And in the night you tripped and fell,
Through the banister rail
With me in your arms.
In the night you tripped and fell.
In the night, you tripped and fell.

Yes, it's a mess
But I'm not quite finished yet.
Oh there'll be coffee in the kitchen,
An eiderdown on every bed.
And in the Winter there'll be a fire glowing in the hearth
And by the time that Spring has sprung there'll be flowers growing up the path.

But in the night you tripped and fell,
Through the banister rail
With me in your arms.
In the night you tripped and fell.
In the night, you tripped and fell.

So we go tumbling down the stairs of love,
Flight by frightful flight.
I bet you didn't think you could fall in love
To things that go bump in the night.
I lay here at the bottom,
I'm battered and bruised,
But you my dear lover
Have never seemed quite so capable to move...

I never beg,
Oh but please, just stay a while.
If you'd only know the cowboys who broke their promise to this domicile,
You'd understand the state it's in now,
You'd understand.
Yeah you'd understand the state it's in now.

So we go tumbling down the stairs of love,
Flight by frightful flight.
I bet you didn't think you could fall in love
To things that go bump in the night.
I lay here at the bottom,
I'm battered and bruised,
But you my dear lover
Have never seemed quite so capable to move...

It's inhospitable I know
Just give me time to let it show
I only want to make it nice for you

So we go tumbling down the stairs of love,
Flight by frightful flight.
I bet you didn't think you could fall in love
To things that go bump in the night.
I lay here at the bottom,
I'm battered and bruised,
But you my dear lover
Have never seemed quite so capable to move...
