Alongside all the festivities and fun, midwinter can be a lonely and sad time for many people who are missing someone they love.
Yes I think I do OK
I work pretty hard but I still find time to play.
And when I hear bad jokes, I laugh anyway
Cos it's no skin off my nose and it might make someone's day.
But as the nights draw in
And the leaves fall
And the birds take wing
and we turn back the clocks..
And I remember everything.
On the longest night of the shortest day
The moon out of sight, behind the clouds and rain...
I wish that somehow you'd been able to stay
For the longest night and the shortest day.
Yes I think I doing fine
I fill my days and I kill my time
I'll meet up with old partners in crime
And we'll share a joke and a bottle of win.
But as the world falls asleep
And the road ahead looks so long and steep
And we turn back the clocks
To the memories that we all keep.
