House On Fire

I’m sure everyone has heard of the wonderful Greta Thunberg, the schoolgirl who first drew everyone’s attention to the fact that children are seriously worried about Climate Change and how it will affect their futures. Greta, alongside the marvellous David Attenborough, have done so much to highlight the plight of the planet. Together, they have inspired children the world over. 

Dedication

In particular, Greta has shown us all just how powerful little people can be. She and David are the planet’s David slaying the Goliath of world governments that put the interests of huge corporations first. Greta has shown us that together, little people can effect huge, positive change and influence the hearts and minds of those in power.

 

Niamh wrote this next song, House On Fire, when she was inspired by Greta's 2019 address to world leaders. After many stops and starts because of lockdown during 2020, we finally finished recording the song in 2021. Where there's a will, there's a way. House On Fire is dedicated to Greta. Go Greta! We're on fire!!!

Lyrics

VERSE1                                                                             

We don’t want your false hope

We don’t want your empty words

Why don’t you take the right action?               

Care about saving our world. 

VERSE2

We don’t want this conversation                       

Coz the answer’s always the same 

Why come to us children to give you hope       

Is there more profit in shame? 

 

Bridge

Why can’t you see it?

 

CHORUS 

Because your house is on fire

Yeah! your house is on fire

And you won’t put it out with lies

Why can’t you realise?

 

VERSE3

We know that you have betrayed us.  

All the signs are very clear

Choosing wealth over our future 

Why are we living in fear? 

 

Bridge 

Young eyes are watching you

Be careful what you do

 

CHORUS 

Because your house is on fire 

Yeah your house is on fire

And you won’t put it out with lies 

You don’t seem to realise Realise

That your house is on fire 

Yeah your house is on fire

You won’t make us look away 

Won’t be business in the usual way 

Middle 8

Change is coming

The future is now

The way we are living

Change now

 

CHORUS

Because our house is on fire 

Yeah! our house is on fire

Young eyes are watching you 

Be careful what you do 

‘Cause our house is on fire 

Yeah! our house is on fire

Instead of truth, you give us fairy tales, 

Making profit and more sales 

You steal our future and our dreams 

What you say’s not what it means 

‘Cause our house is on fire!

Fire, fire, fire fire, fire
