Hoping and praying and wishing That maybe he is thinking and dreaming of me I don't wanna have to tell him so That I don't ever let him go, oh no no It breaks my heart to see him It breaks my heart to see him alone Every time that he walks by (alone) He's the kind of boy that looks real shy, oh my my It breaks my heart to see him It breaks my heart, and so I'm Hoping and praying and wishing That maybe he is thinking and dreaming of me And one day I can Hold him and kiss him and squeeze him, and tell him that I'm Thinking and dreaming of him Maybe I should run away Settle down in some old sunny town far, far away Cos I don't wanna make a fool Out of me for the third time (fifth time) seventh time (eighth time) I don't wanna have to tell him so that I don't ever let him go, oh no no It breaks my heart to see him It breaks my heart to see him alone Every time that he walks by (alone) He's the kind of boy that looks real shy, oh my my It breaks my heart to see him It breaks my heart, and so I'm Hoping and praying and wishing That maybe he is thinking and dreaming of me And one day I can Hold him and kiss him and squeeze him, and tell him that I'm thinking and dreaming of him Hoping and praying

Cuddly toys and Christmas trees Stockings filled with sweets for me Rollers, sparklers, Eastenders Same old presents wait and see Breaking down on the M4 Only fog no sign of snow I don't know where I'm going to But I'm hoping I'll bump into you Christmas bells were calling out your name And the stars were writing out the same Let me be the fairy on your Christmas tree tonight Let me be the fairy on your Christmas tree tonight Let me be the fairy on your Christmas tree tonight Or maybe until New Year's Eve Jingle bells and the hit parade Twinkling stars and sparkly shoes Office parties with mulled wine Glitzy dresses, my head held high I just want someone to stay in Watching Brucie's special with No-one should be alone tonight Especially a girl like me Christmas bells were calling out your name And the stars were writing out the same Let me be the fairy on your Christmas tree tonight Let me be the fairy on your Christmas tree tonight Let me be the fairy on your Christmas tree tonight Or maybe until New Year's Eve

about

“Hoping and Praying” arrives in digital format with really appetizing content. This new release will be presided over by “Hoping and Praying”, one of the songs that best reflects the album’s spirit: youthful and excited, vital and colorful, melancholy and tremendously fun. Next, “Can You Feel It?” is a previously unreleased track from the album sessions, about which we are still asking ourselves today why it didn’t make it onto the album, with its accelerated pop and glorious chorus. One of the greatest gems of this EP is “And Suddenly”, and incredible version of one of the last compositions by THE LEFT BANKE, originally released as a Split-single with GEORGE WASHINGTON BROWN on Slumberland Records, and which at times brings our protagonists close to the gorgeous elegance of Bacharach. And then there is the closer, “Let Me Be The Fairy on Your Christmas Tree Tonight”, taken from the compilation “A Very Cherry Christmas Volume 5” from the British label Cherryade Records, with its rock ´n roll piano along the best lines of THE SHIRELLES and THE SHANGRILA’S, as if we would expect anything less.

The culmination of all of this is the precious video for the title track, directed once again by Tom Readdy (who also did their two previous videos), in which we can see the band playing, nothing more and nothing less, in the altar of a church (!!), while at their backs all sort of colorful “miracles” are taking place, which John Lennon would definitely approve of. Both the album cover and the celestial animations are by Lucy Dawkins.
