Home Fires is a song about childhood, growing up, and starting a family - the circular pattern life follows. Recorded on the Steinway grand piano in St Georges Hall, Bristol, Daisy returned to her most simplistic but effective arrangement of piano, violin and cello drawing comparisons to Max Richter, Soap'n'Skin and Agnes Obel.


3 noses pressed against the window
3 noses pushed against the glass
New socks pulled right up to my knees
Anticipation never lasts
Faster, faster Daddy faster
Let the cold air burn my cheeks
Whipping ponytail behind me
Oh this sledge ain't built for three

Oh you can't change the seasons
Stoke the fire and let it glow
Mother's grieving for the summer
Children yearning for the snow

Gather wood ad build a bonfire
Let's see how high it can go
Taller, taller Daddy taller
Hope no hedgehogs make their home below
Come in come in the night is closing
Burning fingers burning toes
Let mother wrap herself around us
Pull the curtains and windows closed

Will I start a generation?
Keep the home fires burning free
Will I carry on tradition?
Or will memories die with me?
