Not much changed for me during lockdown days
sit down and I’ll explain, removing any haze
Business and home life were normal to me
l will tell you what I think if you will listen to me
I live alone so that bits fine
I’m also a key worker so I didn’t have much time
to feel bored, stuck at home and missing any fun
And I managed to cope when my weekends begun
Supermarket shopping was the hardest bit of all
People were just rushing past, like a kind of free for all
especially in the beginning when the toilet rolls were none
how we gonna cope with this, how can we carry on.
Yet we all got to here
I’m glad it’s moving on
Although we are not through it and this war is not yet won.
Spare 2 minutes silence for all the fallen and the lost
Counting numbers doesn’t show who’s counting the real cost
things have changed, it’s a new normal now and
the past has been and gone
we have to adapt we survived it this far
don’t get complacent or relax to be too spa.
we have to be smart so we don’t let a second wave
take too many lives when those lives can be saved.
Every life matters, oh why can’t you see
it’s not this or that, LGBT or BAME
The stronger abusing weaker ones it is quite simple see
wars and all abuses proven it time and time again throughout our history.
I agree it’s a race issue there is no doubt about that
The human race has never failed to be its own outcast
So take that chip off your shoulder, stand tall and be proud of who you are
If it wasn’t for the ones before, we wouldn’t have got this far.
The simple truth is we all get hurt and we all feel pain
Every life matters, must I say it all again?
