A Song for Us by Stages at More Music

Submitted by: More M.

Original Song

Commissioned by Sound UK for their A Song For Us project, we ran three songwriting workshops in different settings across Lancashire on the theme of community during the pandemic. More Music worked with children and young people from Stages at More Music, Garstang Primary School and Ridgewood Community High School.

Captain Tom walking round his garden for the 100th time
No wars, no bombs. Nobody could fight ‘cos they were all inside

We clapped for the NHS
We got things off our chest
We made friends, we did exercise
We got bored so we went online

So many walks, grandad discovered Bowland for the first time
So many zooms, everybody saying to “unmute your mic”
