The moment I saw the twelve lines my wife - and writing partner - Dawn, had written in black biro on a sheet of A4 paper, I knew this one was special.
When I sat down with my guitar and played, the melody just happened and the un-named song was born. We asked our son's school if they'd like to get involved and with the childrens' voices recorded, we published the song to raise funds for the school.
While UK radio ignored it, US radio loved it, played it and took it to No 9 in the Independent Music charts on Christmas Eve, 2007.
This version here is a remix I made in 2010, but the original version with the children is still available to download FREE here.
