Link to your song

This was recorded at a lockdown Boho Night (21 October 2020) by Matt. There is no music just lyrics calling out to be made into a song.

What is the feeling behind your song and how does it link to climate change?

Back before the turn of the Millennium everything was falling to pieces and we really thought it couldn’t get much worse. And yet here we are.

What is your link to Reading?

Lived here for more than half my life. As a child I moved all over the place and never really managed to put down roots. But I discovered Reading just down the road from where I had been living, and it made me feel really at home. So here I stayed.

Summarise the mood of the song: Lament
