Leddra Chapman – “Ghosts” single
“I would dream of the day when the world would prove there’s others here. I would make all of my imaginary friends appear. But in the living, I’m alone. I don’t feel any spirits with me in my home. No visits from the ones I miss the most. So I don’t believe in ghosts anymore.” – lyrics
‘Ghosts’ finds a vulnerable Leddra Chapman declaring that she no longer believes in ghosts, fate, and God.
Apparently, loneliness, the uncertainties of life, and unanswered prayers are a few reasons why she no longer believes in things she used to hold dear to her heart.
‘Ghosts’, written after the departure of Chapman’s beloved father, signifies the loss of innocence when dealing with grief and heartache.
“When I write, it’s very important to me that it comes from a place of total honesty, and I remember feeling very reluctant to hold back on ‘Ghosts’. I’m learning that feelings of loss and heartache seem to revolve around a range of moments; intense sadness, denial, hopelessness, anger, humor, for example. This song was written within one of those moments of hopelessness, and I think it captures a loss of innocence. However, people relate to the song, I really hope it can provide comfort during what can be quite a hard time of year for people.” – Leddra Chapman
