Under a Million Lights

Album: Twelve Tales Of Christmas (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Tom Chapin wrote this tune with Aqualung's Matt Hales for his Twelve Tales Of Christmas album. He told The Sun: "I had an old melody that I wanted to find a place for then Matt and I worked together on a soul-infused chorus. The song is about trying to emphasise the positives in humankind in a media world where we seem to be dragged towards the negative."
