Track Name: It Always Rains In Scotland
I'm never going to be a millionaire, and that's alright
I'd just like to pay my bills now and then, on time
But the house where we live has a roof that's full of holes and it always rains in Scotland, don't you know?

I'm never going to be the man who packs his bags and leaves
Says goodbye to all he's known and all he's seen
And that's ok, because when the sun it shines on Leith there is a spring in both our steps and smiles that dance before our teeth
But the house where we live has a roof that's full of holes and it always rains in Scotland, don't you know?

I have never been the best at getting things off of my chest
Half the time I think that half the roads less travelled are half the reason that I'm in a mess

I'm never going to be a millionaire, and that's alright
I'd just like to pay my bills now and then, on time
But the house where we live is a home that's filled with warmth and it only rains in Scotland when you're gone
