From The Folks On The Street

It is estimated that in the UK alone there are 5,000 people sleeping rough on the streets of our towns and cities. It is a national disgrace and made worse when it is also estimated that 320,000 people are homeless and only a few steps away from joining them.

Its a scene from before one that always endures
Despite all the good words we still search for the cure

I wish you could feel our heartache x 3
As we live our poor lives

But despite all the words still nothing is heard
We are easily forgotten and passed by and cursed

Now you make think we’re making ends meet x 3
But the truth is we’re not

The Big Issue can help and for that we give thanks
But the world needs to care more and give something back

Well I wish you could see the silence feel the pain and the violence
All the acts that remind us we are all on our own

We still wish you a merry xmas
We still wish you a merry xmas
We wish you a merry xmas from the folks on the streets.

With heartbreaking lyrics, Radioontheshelf challenges us to open our eyes and care about our homeless community members. Set to Stefan Kartenberg’s beautiful acoustic rendition of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” this folk song is at once familiar and engaging. Take a listen…
