During the early 2020 Corona virus lockdown I posted daily video diaries as I wrote this song from scratch. Starting with doodles on my phone the lyrics were added and a demo recorded from guide guitar through to lead vocal and harmonies. For those who have requested it here is the result for download. The video diaries are on our facebook page and will be posted on YouTube and here: duncanreidandthebigheads.com/2020/04/26/writing-a-song-during-lockdown-a-video-diary/


Dreaming of a day when, socialising’s back in oh oh oh
A day when we’re out playing, instead of isolating yeah
Watching as the grass grows, planting new potatoes oh oh oh
I’d rather watch the football or be out on a pub crawl yeah

oh oh can I go out now please
Oh oh you know I’d be good
Oh oh can I go out now please
Oh oh If only I could

Getting bored with Netflix, eating food with chopsticks oh oh oh
makes things last much longer, as my thoughts start to wander yeah
Longing for those faces, in noisy, crowded places oh oh oh
Makes the heart grow fonder, for the Wild Blue Yonder oh


Middle 8:
Every day’s just the same. Every day my mind strays
Maybe Marseille or Bombay
But I’ll be far away, oh so far away


released April 22, 2020
