about

During lockdown, we were unable to get together and make music like we normally do, so we wrote this by sending different bits to each other like a musical relay race!
Check out the video of it here: youtu.be/Fq4DreEkcEA

All proceeds from this single will go to Feeding Britain, to help people struggling in these trying times.

Thanks for your generosity!


Feeding Britain is a UK based charity dedicated to supplying local food banks, feeding children on school holidays and supporting struggling people and families living with poverty.

lyrics

Verse 1
It's a cold December evening, my friends are feeling far apart
I've bolted all the doors and windows and quarantined my aching heart
But let's all stand together and stare into the magic box
Utopia seems far away but we’ll still write some stupid songs

Chorus
Don't go outside, the world's locked down
Cheer up, stay in, we'll sing around
Though there are miles and masks between
Our music won't be quarantined
Don’t go outside, there’s nothing there
Lets watch a stream and grow out our hair
We miss the shows and miss our friends
See you all when Lockdown ends

Verse 2
The days are getting shorter, It looks like there's no end in sight
I can't remember how it feels, to take a step outside
But let's turn up the heating, and pop the kettle on
Raise a glass to all the good times, that are still to come

Chorus
Don't go outside, the world's locked down
Cheer up, stay in, we'll sing around
Though there are miles and masks between
Our music won't be quarantined
Don’t go outside, there’s nothing there
Lets watch a stream and grow out our hair
We miss the shows and miss our friends
See you all when Lockdown ends

Mid 8
We know, there’s gonna be better time to come
And we know, that love will always be there
We were born to be wild
And too long we’ve been exiled
When there’s zero cases, we’ll hire drinking places,
Some tight indoor spaces, We long for your faces!

Chorus
Don't go outside, the world's locked down
Cheer up, stay in, we'll sing around
Though there are miles and masks between
Our music won't be quarantined
Don’t go outside, there’s nothing there
Lets watch a stream and grow out our hair
We miss the shows and miss our friends
See you all when Lockdown ends
