Kathryn Williams Tradition Lyrics

Last updated:

Driving home from the wedding feeling static
From everything moving
Like the man on his farm who fought for the motorway
To be built on either side
Everywhere tradition draws circles to define

A big round honeymoon a wedding ring a hug from your dad
As you walk in slowly
And waltz back out again
Everywhere tradition draws circles to define
Everywhere tradition draws circles to define

I thought of you all
Up there drawing hearts above their heads
Like plane trails drawn in permanent ink
In permanent ink

Driving home from the wedding
Driving home from the wedding

Low key beauty | Reviewer: James Hurley | 9/10/2004

The words 'understated' and 'beauty' are perhaps overused when it comes to this kind of alternative folk music, but these most hackneyed of phrases definitely apply here. This song is classy, subtle and stunning, and poetic both in its lyric and the quality of the music itself. It feels almost filmic, and I'll be surprised if it doesn;t eventually turn up on an independent film soundtrack at some point! Anyway, a brilliant song!
