Track Name: christmas by phone
On top of a plastic tree, a paper roundel.
You've crossed off your Christmas spree the friends around you.

Christmas by phone.
Wet leaf on stone.
I walk the long way round to your home.

Christmas online.
Old parcel twine.
You walk the long way round to mine,
and the streets are empty.

And it's all so cold... always.

That target always moves.
This market's black and blue.

Not told what we're to do,
we join the longest queue.

So be kind to us all,
entwined in each other.

Kept safe within walls,
sleep soundly in your warm bed tonight.
