"Hockey Skates" as written by and Kathleen Margaret Edwards....
Going down in the same old town down the same street to the same bar
And the same old people saying hi and I don't care
Going down in the same old bar and I don't even order anymore
I am so sick of consequence and the look on your face
I am tired of playing defense
I don't even have hockey skates

You can meet me at ten thirty
I won't be there I'll be gone
We can talk like we are friends
Going over it all again
Talking about everything I am doing wrong

Do you wish your nose was longer
So you'd have an excuse not to see past it
Do you wish the lights were brighter in the city that you live
I am so sick of consequence?..

Do you think your boys club will crumble
Just because of a loud-mouthed girl?

    General CommentI think this song is about what it's like to be a woman and to be judged. Judged by friends, family or a husband. So because if that judgement you can't help but turn to creature comforts like the local bar, where you don't even need to order anymore because they know what you drink. It's about independence and about being lonely due to walking to the beat of your own drum. Hence the being tired of consequences. I can relate 100%.
