CHARITY CHRISTMAS SINGLE

This song is a response to what has been a year of fearful intolerance and division. It is my protest to the rise of the far right, to crippling austerity, to increasing homelessness, to hate-mongering. It's about keeping positive and proactive to make sure the vulnerable in society are protected. This is a small thing, which I felt I could offer. I also love Christmas songs. Here is to a kinder 2017.

All proceeds from this track will be donated to homeless charity Crisis. Go here for more info on the amazing work they do: www.crisis.org.uk

Any sharing on social media very much appreciated. Thank you.

Peace x

lyrics

I find it pretty difficult to feel festive cheer
To justify jolliness after this year
A shadow of the future has fallen on me
The baubles and tinsel are choking the tree

It doesn't matter if it's rain and not snow
It's the rise of neo-fascism getting me low
Don't give me frippery and things I don't need
There's a man hunched on Queen Street with bags on his feet

However you wrap it up
Your kind of white Christmas sucks
It'll soon come unstuck

I'll be hopeful this Christmas
Won't give into fear
I'll be wishing this Christmas
For a kinder new year

Grubby little opportunists are stirring a rage
They come bearing hate in the post-factual age
But Jesus was a dark-skinned, socialist Jew
Who died in the name of peace, love and truth
So if ever there's a Christmas to think of the meek
It's 2016 with the havoc we've wreaked

However you wrap it up
Your kind of white Christmas sucks
It'll soon come unstuck

I'll be hopeful this Christmas
Won't give into fear
I'll be wishing this Christmas
For a kinder new year

We've got to cohere
I'm really sincere
Now pass me a beer
