about

Will (yes that one) and Alex, known on their blog as 2WalkTo, are two good friends of mine who are as I write, walking from London to Devon to raise money for 2 charities that mean something to them.

Read about why they are doing it, and if you're reading before 5th April, track their progress live, at 2walkto.blogspot.co.uk (or click on the banner above).

After chatting to Will and Alex about their adventure I felt inspired and wrote 3 songs in a day.

I decided I would record them myself at home and put them out to the world to promote their trip.

You can download the tracks for free if you wish, but if you do donate any money, I will give it to Will and Alex to donate to their two chosen charities.

Track Name: We'll Be Back Champions
Crossing the line, I'll keep in mind
The starting point is well behind us

We'll be back champions
We'll be back champions of our ambitions

We'll stand in unison, walk two by two
Trek away towards wherever we want to walk to

We'll be back champions
We'll be back champions of our ambitions

We'll stamp till we feel like our feet are invisible
Someone's gotta hear us, someone's gotta hear this
Beat beat beat beat beat
Beat your chest if you feel the fire with us

We'll be back champions
We'll be back champions of our ambitions

We all get lazy and procrastinate
There's never gonna be a better day than today to change so I'll be on my way

We'll be back champions
We'll be back champions of our ambitions
Track Name: We Do What We Can
I came along and I joined you
I came along and we talked and we touched and it meant a lot, and I told you
We're having a baby, we're having a baby, we're having a baby
And we can only hope that everything goes right

Cos' sometimes nature stumbles
And kind words are not enough to fix the complications but
There's people and places and ways to try to keep us going on
And they keep our hearts alive

I want a home and a family
I want no more than the health of all my loved ones
And what's more, don't we all, don't we do all agree to agree on that
And it keeps our hearts alive

So we'll do what we can to say thanks for keeping us going on
We do what we can to keep it so you can keep going on

Of course I'll be there, of course I care
for you
Track Name: A Hand To Hold
This is not where I had planned my life to go
I'm not complaining but now I just don't know
Where it's leading, but with the power of experience on my back
I find that I grow stronger every day

Where you gonna be without a hand to hold?
When the snow is drifting in and the rain washes you out
Where you gonna be without a hand to hold?
When the sun shines in your eyes
I'll guide you home

We all need certain things like a wooly hat and gloves on strings
Attached from the arm through the shoulders to the other arm
So you can't leave either behind
I got quite far, I got here
But I didn't get here on my own
I got a lot of friends hidden in my pocket amongst scribbled notes and a label saying "this belongs to you"

Where you gonna be without a hand to hold?
When the snow is drifting in and the rain washes you out
Where you gonna be without a hand to hold?
When the sun shines in your eyes
I'll guide you home

Hold on
