Songfacts®:

  • Marlon Roudette was inspired to write this song by his grandma who passed away in 2011. He explained to The Sun: "She was blind from the age of five. She lost her sight in an east London hospital. To see someone like that raise a family and be one of the most capable people was a huge lesson in life. She passed away the same week I wrote 'The Loss' and it's dedicated to her. She's with me every day. I feel her presence. It's quite a difficult one to sing live but a necessary one."
