New original Xmas themed song. Bittersweet acoustic ballad about saying goodbye. "so sweet and really lovely" Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

lyrics

It’s St Benedicts Christmas Fair
And everyone is gathered here
What’s on my mind they’ll never know
What I feel I cannot show

And as for me I’m standing here
Singing my songs of Christmas cheer
Why it hurts they’ll never know
Just why it is I have to go
Have to go

Always afraid this time of year
The future is laid out so unclear
No goodbyes, no warm embrace
Just the sadness on your face

And as for me I’m standing here
Singing my songs of Christmas cheer
Why it hurts they’ll never know
Just why it is I have to go
Have to go
