We Do What We Can

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

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

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

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.

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.
