lyrics

Down the drive shrouded in trees
The old and familiar scent of conkers and leaves
They fall every year but the colours still get me every time

There she is, waiting for me
All curled up and cosy, on her favourite settee
I give her a cuddle and drink my cup of tea as I rest

For I've travelled the world
From New York to Rome
I've seen wonder and grace
But it's good to be home
It's good to be home

Sunday morning, loudly awake
Fast up the stairs, as much noise he can make
We'll play hide and seek til our bodies start to ache
All day long

Candles lit as it darkens so soon
With cake on the table and an old Irish tune
We speak of our weeks to come
And welcome the moon in the sky, oh my

'Cause I've travelled the world
From New York to Rome
I've seen wonder and grace
But it's good to be home
It's good to be home

But as always, it comes an end
I must leave so goodbye
But I'll be home again soon my friends
The weekend has flown by
