The older I get , the more I get it Christmas is choker, uh-huh Im leff thinking about all those I miss Contemplating misteps that brought me here And the reality I didnt soak in those moments Which is why I recall... Such dark moments Trying to relive a feeling Walking home drunk after closing Christmas lights in dark shop doorways Through dodgy Harehills backstreets My piss wet feet carried me The cty's dirty slushy pavements I wasnt a student, but I sure lived like one I was clinging to the dream of getting the band together So I sat in that freezing cold home With a sorry tree that was soon to become a year long fixure And my housemate Stephen was gone for the holidays Alone with a 4 pack of Skol and a dodgy kebab I held on as long as I could A value pack of Kwik Save mince pies A black and white telly Only Fools and Horses Christimas specials I wasnt brave enough to fix this on my own Afterall I had a lifetime of Christmas' ahead of me Yeah, merry fucking Christmas I miss my fucking daughters...

It's a holiday Of silly beliefs none of which align to me But I'll decorate the Christmas Tree With every ornament and different memory Drinking by the fire Up all night I hate religion But Christmas is so nice... Its been a while since Ive been back home I miss my friends, my family and the bitter cold Snow falling down The glowing lights I hate religion But Christmas is so nice... We are atheists But we love Christmas!

about

Its that time of year! A new Boyracer Xmas single, available for your digital listening pleasure aswell as in its analogue glory on a limited vinyl 7inch.
"Harehills Christmas" recalls the early 90s when young Stewart was fresh out of high school, with dreams a plenty, and was living in a 25 pound a week terraced house in one of Leeds' lesser fashionable areas.
"Atheists who Love Christmas", penned by Christina is self explanitory. A resplendent upbeat breezy tune to bring cheer, and the perfect flip to the dour Northern charm of "Harehills Christmas"

HAREHILLS CHRISTMAS
The older I get , the more I get it
Christmas is choker, uh-huh
Im leff thinking about all those I miss
Contemplating misteps that brought me here
And the reality I didnt soak in those moments
Which is why I recall...
Such dark moments
Trying to relive a feeling
Walking home drunk after closing
Christmas lights in dark shop doorways
Through dodgy Harehills backstreets
My piss wet feet carried me
The cty's dirty slushy pavements
I wasnt a student, but I sure lived like one
I was clinging to the dream of getting the band together
So I sat in that freezing cold home
With a sorry tree that was soon to become a year long fixure
And my housemate Stephen was gone for the holidays
Alone with a 4 pack of Skol and a dodgy kebab
I held on as long as I could
A value pack of Kwik Save mince pies
A black and white telly
Only Fools and Horses Christimas specials
I wasnt brave enough to fix this on my own
Afterall I had a lifetime of Christmas' ahead of me
Yeah, merry fucking Christmas
I miss my fucking daughters...
