If time is tight it's right to stay another night
You know the score, i wouldn't want you sleeping on the floor

Cos' living on your own is never any fun
A house is not a home when you make it what you want to

It's hard to tell if you should make the choice by yourself
Cos' on your own you only learn to like what you know

You recognise the smell but as far as you can tell
A house becomes hotel when you make it what you want to

What's the use of going home again
When it's always the same

It's getting late so can you show me what i'm missing
Say what you see, i'll let you be my referee

Send it through the post, the things you like the most
I'm sure I couldn't prove if you make me what you wanted to

What's the point of moving home again
What's the use of going back again
What's the point of changing face and then
Packing boxes moving home again
When it's always the same

    General CommentThis song is pretty funny and deep. I think it shows what happens when we leave home and try to live life on our own accord. Whoever is staying at someone's house is definitely not staying a short time as "You know the score, i wouldn't want you sleeping on the floor". It almost seems like someone older is telling them all of this, where there are hard choices to make, you don't know where to fully establish yourself, but there is no true place like home, no matter where you end up.

    "What's the point of changing face and then
    Packing boxes moving home again
    When it's always the same"
