"House" as written by and Patrick Wolf....
Oh, I love this house, I love this house
Gives me the greatest peace I've ever known
Oh, I love to hear those conquers fall
Smash them on in suffolk stone.

And I love that here you live with me
Gives me the greatest peace I've ever known
Cos I've been too long a lonely man
Yes I've been too long a rolling stone.

So let seasons turn
Grow paradise Garden
And to my mind reassure
The native has returned.

I love the curling of your hair
Gives me the greatest peace I've ever known
I see Dylan Thomas in your face
Recite Butler Yeats now in your grace.

So let seasons turn
Grow paradise Garden
And to my mind reassure
The native has returned.

And if I had to die today
Scatter my ashes on displace
And I'll live on in your beating heart
But truth, I didn't heed a heart.

This is the greatest peace I've ever known
Oh, the greatest peace I've ever known
Oh, the greatest peace I've ever known
Only love makes house a home.

Home.

Home.

Home.

This house is home.

    General CommentI think many lyrics didn't make sense, here is a more accurate version:

    Oh I love this House, I love this House
    Gives me the greatest peace I've ever known
    Oh I love to hear those conkers fall
    Smash'em on an Southwark* stone

    And I love that here you live with me
    Gives me the greatest peace I've ever known
    Cause I've been too long a lonely man
    Yes I've been too long a rolling stone

    So let seasons turn
    Grow paradise garden
    And to my migration
    The native has returned

    Oh I love the curling of your hair
    Gives me the greatest peace I've ever known
    I see Dylan Thomas in your face
    Reciting Butler Yeats in your grace
    Your grace, your grace

    So let seasons turn
    Grow paradise garden
    And to my migration
    The native has returned

    Returned
    Returned

    And if I had to die today
    Scatter my ashes on this place
    And I live on in your grieving heart
    But until that day that we depart

    Oh this is the greatest peace I've ever known
    Oh the greatest peace I've ever known
    Oh the greatest peace I've ever known
    Only love makes House a home

    Home
    Home
    Home

    This House is home
    Home

    This is the greatest peace I've ever known
    Oh, the greatest peace I've ever known
    Oh, the greatest peace I've ever known
    Only love makes house a home.

    Home.
    Home.
    Home.
    This house is home.

    General CommentIt's amazing how full of love and happiness these Lupercalia songs are. Such a warm song. I hope Patrick stays happy, it's such a change.

    Song MeaningDefinitely about grounding yourself, and moving on from being a "rolling stone", or a restless person seeking adventures left and right. Love brings the greatest peace, and contempt, and without it, we wouldn't have a place to call "home"; somewhere where we can always go when times are rough, or we just want to rejuvenate, and be filled with love.
