about

Musicians Packwood, Jack Carty, Achoo! Bless You, Fanny Lumsden and Rosie Catalano are proud to announce the release of their original Christmas carol 'Heading Home (It's Christmas Time)', with 100% of all proceeds going to Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Australia.

Written about an atypical Australian journey home for Christmas, the song sings of warm weather, magpies and family shenanigans that we all know and love to be a part of this time of the year.

lyrics

The grass is dry and the river slows,
The highway's packed and the city groans.
My friends and I are heading home,
To Christmas bugs and backyard toasts.

And every year we seem to travel more.
Some are running from and some towards.
When people trace like patterns,
Across the surface of the globe -
At Christmas time, we hope you're heading home.

It's 35 and summer sings its song,
Cicada's and the Magpies sing along.
Backyard games with brothers and some board games on the lawn,
Play guitar whilst our Dad tries to sing us Christmas songs.
When people trace like patterns,
Across the surface of the globe -
At Christmas time, we hope you're heading home.

When people trace like patterns,
Across the surface of the globe -
At Christmas time, we hope you're heading home.

Christmas time, we hope you're heading home
It's Christmas time; we hope you're heading home.
It's Christmas time; we hope you're heading home.
It's Christmas time; we hope you're heading home.
It's Christmas time; we hope you're heading home.
It's Christmas time; we hope you're heading home.
