"Caravan Holiday" as written by Kelly Jones, Stuart Cable and Richard Mark Jones....
Seven day holiday in the rain, it's June
At the time we were plain old me and you
It didn't matter that the sky came down
I never really felt like going out
Seven days watching rain inside with you

Saturday watched the game you fried our food
Nothing busy nothing easy but something you
It didn't matter that we couldn't eat out
My ship sank and my shoes were damp
Seven days hearing rain inside with you

There's always time to complain about the weather
Seasons change in a day just like each other
But we wait for summer
Seven day holiday in the rain with you

Lie awake drinking late is all that's left to do
Not a sound but the rain on the pale blue roof
It didn't matter that we couldn't sleep out
I never really felt like sleeping rough
Seven day holiday drinking dry with you

There's always time to complain about the weather
Seasons change in a day just like each other
But we wait for summer
Seven day holiday in the rain with you
Seven day holiday in the rain with you

    General CommentThis song is another great example of Kelly Jones' ability to tell a great story in 4 minutes! On the surface it's simply recounting a week's holiday wasted in the caravan because of the weather, however the chorus tells us a little more about it:
    " There's always time to complain about the weather
    Seasons change in a day just like each other
    But still we wait for summer "
    This couple don't seem to have the best or calmest of relationships, their moods obviously changing towards one another, but their caravan holiday is still something they look forward to in the summer, perhaps to get away from everything else in their lives. Of course they're just stuck in the caravan this year ;)

    General CommentI feel that the song is more of a romantic tale of a couple truly in love. They went on holiday, ‘just plain old me and you’, just as they always had been. As luck would have it, they have seven days of rain, but it doesn’t seem to matter. ‘It didn’t matter that we couldn’t eat out….it didn’t matter that we couldn’t sleep out”, and I feel like the line “seven days hearing rain inside with you” paints a picture of two people enjoying each other’s company, and the simple pleasures of life. The second aspect of the song almost says ‘these types of things happen, what are you going to do?’ The lines, “There's always time to complain about the weather / Seasons change in a day just like each other” is him saying that they need to enjoy each day together, whatever it may bring. We should enjoy this weather now because tomorrow the seasons, just like you and me, will continue to change, yet we still look towards summer and the future. Savor the day and spend it with the people you love.

    General CommentOn the acoustic tour just before JEEP was released (or was it just after??), Kelly said that this was about him and RICHARD being away in a caravan as teenagers! "At the time we were plain old me and you."
