Lyrics

Sometimes this job can seem surreal,

And at times I just don’t know how to feel,

It’s a challenge and a joy at the same time,

An emotional mountain for me to climb,

Sometimes I climb up sometimes down,

Wearing a smile or sometimes a frown,

But I know I’m not on my own,

With my colleagues behind me I’m never alone,


 

Yet there’s now where else I’d rather be,

Than part of the hospice family,

We share a hug and a cup of tea,

We’re part of the hospice family


 

Some relationships can be so brief,

It’s a difficult emotion this thing called grief,

An honour and a privilege to be there,

Someone to lean on in a time of despair,

My role requires so many things,

No matter what the day ahead may bring

If we can laugh or manage a smile,

At the end of the day it’s a job worthwhile,


 

Yet there’s now where else I’d rather be,

Than part of the hospice family,

We share a hug and a cup of tea,

We’re part of the hospice family


 

Sometimes we need a friendly face,

In what can seem such a scary place,

I never thought this job would be for me,

The good, the bad and all in-between,


 

Yet there’s now where else I’d rather be,

Than part of the hospice family,

We share a hug and a cup of tea,

We’re part of the hospice family

We’re part of the hospice family,

We’re part of the hospice family.
