For the Lost

Album: Twelve Tales Of Christmas (2017)


  • This poignant song is about trying to face the future with optimism in the midst of a tragic events.

    "I wrote that during the crazy time of the London Bridge stabbings, the Manchester bombing and the Grenfell Tower fire," Chaplin told The London Times. "For someone who wants to go around randomly stabbing members of the public or blowing themselves up I would say, 'Why don't you stop for a moment and try doing something positive instead?' It may be a naive hope, but as my therapist says, nobody is born evil. You can get sucked into a vortex of bad news, but Christmas is one of those rare times when we stop and reflect, and try and be less selfish. Or at least do the washing-up."
