The germ of the track was the opening line, which was a text sent from one colleague to another. The theme of loneliness at Christmas is an obvious one, but with community awareness and care, it won't stay that way. More pertinent than ever, this year!


It's Snowing on the TV

It's snowing on the TV, but it's raining outside
The chance of snow is 23 to 1
The army of salvation have charity to spare, so the lonely know
They're not the only one

The spirit of the season's overflowing everywhere
Underneath the frail December sun
But the happiness of passersby is passing by the man who is lonely,
But he's not the only one

We've travelled from who knows where,
On the road to who can say
Togetherness will nevertheless spring again
As winter passes away

It's snowing on the TV but its raining outside
Where voices fill the air with hope to come
The reflection in the window of people on the street
Remind the lonely
They're not the only one
Remind the lonely
They're not the only one
