"Tradition" as written by and Kathryn Williams....
Driving home from the wedding feeling static
From everything moving
Like the man on his farm who fought for the motorway
To be built on either side
Everywhere tradition draws circles to define

A big round honeymoon a wedding ring a hug from your dad
As you walk in slowly
And waltz back out again
Everywhere tradition draws circles to define
Everywhere tradition draws circles to define

I thought of you all
Up there drawing hearts above their heads
Like plane trails drawn in permanent ink
In permanent ink

Driving home from the wedding
Driving home from the wedding

    General CommentThis song has a wonderful sense of stillness. I imagine her driving back from the wedding, it's very late at night and the roads are empty as she contemplates the pressures of expectation (for her own marriage). The reference to the farmer is true: a man fought a bizaare campaign to have his farmhouse saved though it meant he'd be cut off from the rest of the world by a motorway on either side (except for bridge access). Having won, it must have made life hell for him, sitting in his house while everything rushed by.
