Stiff Little Fingers – Safe As Houses lyrics

She makes a home and she stays mum
About the things she might have done
She keeps her eyes firm on the ground, to set her own life
Makes up her face and not her mind, to be a wife

There was a time away back then
She might have thought to think again
But then through dolls and schoolyard games, like ma before her
She learned girls play the family way' don't look for more

She's just playing, playing safe
Playing houses, safe as houses

Here on this street when they were kids
He built his dreams with coloured bricks
But comes the time for him to prove that he's a man now
He gets a wife and makes his move to three doors down

He's playing, playing safe
Playing houses, safe as houses

For there was no-one there to say
It didn't have to be that way
You never get the best of you
When you do what they expect you to

You've heard it all, how you're no use
You're born to fail, so follow suit
But if you feel and got a dream, don't dare ignore it
Cos that is what you've got to be, you must go for it

Don't play it, play it safe
A plague on houses, safe as houses
