I believe in fires at midnight 
When the dogs have all been fed.
A golden toddy on the mantle 
A broken gun beneath the bed.
 Silken mist outside the window. 
 Frogs and newts slip in the dark 
Too much hurry ruins the body. 
I'll sit easy, fan the spark  Kindled by the dying embers 
Of another working day.
Go upstairs, take off your makeup 
Fold your clothes neatly away.
Me, I'll sit and write this love song 
As I all too seldom do 
 Build a little fire this midnight. 
It's good to be back home with you.
