Today we packed the boys back off to school
And suddenly our lives were very strange,
It's not that we don't love them, not at all,
It's just that it's a monumental change.
Young Iris went to her nursery too
Then it was just Isla, me and my wife
And I had faith that at last I could do,
The things I've always wanted with my life.
So let's see how these waiting roads unfold
Let's see if I'm as good as what I think
When I don't have to do what I am told,
I wonder if I'll float or will I sink?
Of course that question's just a little jest,
There is no pressure when you do your best.
