I’m still really proud of it. I don’t really seem to make music any more (maybe I lost the ability when I lost the 4 or so stone I’m carrying in this video, like a fat Samson) but Katy and I are still really close friends and whenever I think of this song, I think of two things:
1) how much this little song about hope and light in the midst of darkness and cold still means to me
2) how much the Afterword, in all its slightly Partridge weird loveliness, still means to me. You lot, and all the many departed since, were always really supportive (mostly!) and without Word, we wouldn’t have got to make this, or the two albums and and one EP that Katy and I have made together.
Wishing you all the joy of the season. It’s been a weird decade, but we’re mostly all still here. Everything’ll be alright.
