Crisis at Christmas has provided vital services for homeless people for 40 years. Whilst we celebrate the lives changed we need your help more than ever to end homelessness for good.

A bit from Richard Judge:
"Every year I get asked if I'm going to write a Christmas song and every year I laugh it off. Someone asked me this again just a couple of weeks ago and the next time I picked up a guitar this tune happened to fall out, almost by accident. It's a song about family and appreciating all the little things in life that are so easily taken for granted, but are always brought to light around this time of year. It's the little quirks that make our family Christmas' unique to us, and this is a song about acknowledging them.

I wanted to make this a release for Charity, and it seemed fitting to choose Crisis as they are dedicated to helping the those people in the UK that do not get to experience the same kind of Christmas' that I'm describing in the song. Crisis at Christmas provide vital services for homeless people in the UK, giving them somewhere to go on Christmas day, the provide them with a hot meal, access to a dentist, access to an optician, help and advice and a sense of community. A few years ago I did some work for Crisis at Christmas so I have seen first hand how the work they do benefits homless people at Christmas time."

lyrics

Run and put the heat on
Mother's gonna be there
You know she likes it warmer
Than anybody I've met

I would always be lost without you
I would always be lost without you

So it's Christmas time don't let it go to waste
Oh it's Christmas time don't throw it all away

Run and set the table
Nana's gonna be there
You know she likes to cradle
A voddie in her own chair

I would always be lost without you
I would always be lost without you

So it's Christmas time don't let it go to waste
Oh it's Christmas time don't throw it all away

Bells will ring from our hearts heavy
Words we sing from our hearts every year
Remind us where we wanna be
