Jingle Blues - a mental health Christmas carol!
Posted by dirkgently1066

Dashing through my mind
In a negative, repetitive way
My confidence is long gone
It has been chased away
Thinking I'm no good
That I can't get anything right
It's time to start taking back my life
So I'll sing this song tonight!

(chorus)

Mental health, mental health
Chase the blues away
Oh! what fun it is to live
In a mental healthy way
Mental health, mental health
Chase the blues away
Oh! what fun it is to live
In a mental healthy way

*

Depression came around
But he stayed for far too long
He told me that I'm weak
That I could not be strong
Then anxiety popped round too
My mind became a cell
Is there any escape from the jail of my mind?
It became too hard to tell

(chorus)

Mental health, mental health
Chase the blues away
Oh! what fun it is to live
In a mental healthy way
Mental health, mental health
Chase the blues away
Oh! what fun it is to live
In a mental healthy way

*

When I thought there's no way back
That no-one else could hear
Therapy showed the way
To tackle all my fears
The road was long and hard
And sometimes it felt strange
But I kept on going and now I see
It was down to me to change

(chorus)

Mental health, mental health,
Chase the blues away.
Oh! what fun it is to live
In a mental healthy way.
Mental health, mental health,
Chase the blues away.
Oh! what fun it is to live
In a mental healthy way.

*

The fog that once was here
Has finally dispersed
The Black Dog is not gone
But I no longer feel cursed
The thoughts might still be there
But I can ignore what they try to say
And concentrate on living my life
In a mental healthy way

(chorus)

Mental health, mental health,
Chase the blues away.
Oh! what fun it is to live
In a mental healthy way.
Mental health, mental health,
Chase the blues away.
Oh! what fun it is to live
In a mental healthy way.
