This catchy song was written during a Distant Voices song-writing session in HMP Barlinnie in January 2018. Donna constructed the lyrics by chatting with Sean and noting down details and interesting phrases as he told stories about his days of gang fighting, and about his love for his partner and child. The pace and rhythm of the song captures the intensity of those past times and Sean’s desire to be out of prison and home soon.
This is a project demo, recorded onsite as part of the workshop.
