about

Ten years after it's first release we're delighted to bring you this special collaboration with The Barefoot Movement

lyrics

Well it seems, so very long
Since I wrote you that Christmas song
It was only yesterday
When that plane took you away from me again
So I’m wishing ‘cos it's all I can do
And I'm hoping & praying that wishes
Would only come true
If our paths cross again
Though it be now and then
Oh please let it be at Christmas time
Please let it be at Christmas time
Though it only comes, once a year
It's the one time you need your love near
So come be with me
It's how Christmas was meant to be
So I'm thinking only of you
And I'm thinking that maybe this time
Wishing's all I need do
If I see you again
Though it be now and then
Oh please let it be at Christmas time
Please let it be at Christmas time
Though it only comes once a year
It's the one time you need your love near
So come be with me
It's how Christmas was meant to be
It's how christmas was meant to be

about

Track Dogs Madrid, Spain

Track Dogs are an acoustic four piece based in Spain but hail from Ireland, the US and UK.

Taking their name from the NY subway maintenance teams this closely-knit group of ex-pats have opted for Cajón instead of drums and trumpet in place of electric guitar. Four-part harmonies steal the show.
