Don't kill yourself, it's Christmastime Leave your worries right on the shelf Verse 1: 2019 What's a meaningful vote or a daydream when it feels just like the end You went shopping for sweets on the busiest streets Then you're kicked in the teeth with a melancholy Verse 2: 2020 Coronavirus, shit is getting real It's like you don't know how to love Have you forgotten how to heal? And you don't know what's real, when it feels just like any other day It isn't just like the ones you used to know, is it? With that in mind, then you might achieve it

Dedicated to the 2019 UK 'meaningful vote', Howard Goodall's twitter thread about post-Brexit touring, Michigan, Georgia, all my friends in bands, every DIY promoter, the feeling of nostalgia for fun/optimism in 2020 and hope for the future where hope seems impossible.
