The song "Ally" is a song for our times. It touches the personal to the political. It supports people who suffer racist abuse, victims of bullying and hate crimes as well as encouraging empathy and friendship.


If at the end of a day
Your love slips away
And your words
They serve you no more

When all the trees are sighing
And the loneliness comes rushing in
And up through the floor

I am your Ally
Flickering in the gaslight
In the fires of a trench fight

I will run beside you
A comrade in the blue
I am your Ally

In the gaslight
I am your Ally
