"Furniture" as written by Eamon John Carr, Barry Devlin, John Martin Richard Fean, Charles Leslie O'connor and James Francis Lockhart....
Solid as a chair from an older time
You watched me slowly grow away from you
Only half understood the things I had to do
But you let me try although it brought the pain to you
You let me try x 2

Chorus:
The best and oldest furniture cannot be rearranged
If it suits the way it is there is no need to change
The best and straightest arrow is the one that will range
Out of the archers view

Verse 2:Badly beaten by the troubles you had to bear
You invested everything you had in me
Hoping I would hoist your flag for all to see
But I broke the things you cherished so carefully
You watched them break x 2

Chorus:The best and oldest furniture cannot be rearranged
If it suits the way it is there is no need to change
The best and straightest arrow is the one that will range
Out of the archers view

    Song MeaningHe loved his partner very deeply ,his subconscious knew the relationship would not work but he could not bring himself to believe this (he loved her too much) so instead his behaviour forced it all to end by hurting her even though he never wanted to hurt her ever.a doomed relationship where both people love each other,(they do exist and they're one of the most heart breaking experiences in this life,I know first hand.)
