about

Dreaming of a Safer Christmas is an attempt to capture in one song both the spirit of hope for a brighter future and something of the real difficulties that are being faced in a Covid dominated world in 2020.

It features the marvellous Joshua Burnell on keys, Hugh Bradley on electric bass, John Arneson on drums and Sam Knight on sax.

lyrics

-- Dreaming of a Safer Christmas --

We made it through to Christmas, it’s time for Christmas cheer
Let’s face it, 2020 was a terrible year
We made it through to Christmas, still breathing and still sane
So, let’s light the midnight candles once again

And though the world’s gone bonkers
And there’s chaos everywhere
The spirit of our Christmastime, will fill the wintry air

Let’s drink to the doctors and the nurses
Let’s drink to the brave volunteer
Let’s toast our friends and neighbours,
Let’s share the Christmas cheer

We made it through to Christmas, we made it through at last
The panic and confusion for now are in the past

I’m dreaming of a safer Christmas with every card I write
May all your days be merry, may all your dreams be bright
So, let’s have a happy Christmas that’s magical and true
I’ll share my special Christmastime with you.

I hope the herald angels can help to make things right
Dear Santa, and your reindeer, come visit us tonight

Here’s to the holly and the mistletoe,
Here’s to the turkey and the wine
Let’s share the joys of family this special Christmastime

I’m dreaming of a safer Christmas with every card I write
May all your days be merry, may all your dreams be bright

Together we can beat it, together we’ll pull through
And one day we will wake up to a world that’s fresh and new

One day we’ll be safe again, one day we’ll be free
So, keep the strength inside your heart
And share your dreams with me

And though we’re keeping our distance
And celebrating with care
The spirit of our Christmastime will fill the wintry air

So, let’s have a happy Christmas, that’s magical and true
I’ll share my special Christmastime with you
