What’s the meaning behind Lewis Capaldi’s new song? Here’s what we know

Lewis Capaldi has opened up about the moving meaning behind his song ‘Wish You The Best’.

The singer said the song is about things that are left unsaid between you and your loved ones.

Capaldi admitted that the song is about things we are afraid to say to people.

“I’ve always been fascinated by the things left unsaid, whether that be in a relationship or a friendship. ‘Wish You The Best’ came from this idea of a person you’ve been close to at some stage in life…inevitably time passes and you’re hearing and seeing the amazing things in their life that’s continued without you, whether that’s through friends, family, or more often through these days through social media.”

“The battle between the struggle to want to know how that person is and everything they’re up to in life but also the part of you that dies  but inside hearing they’ve maybe moved on or about parts of their life where you no longer have a place.”

The Scottish singer said it’s about the things we wish we said to those people before they left our lives.

He continued, “It’s a song about what we don’t say to those people, sometimes there are things we want to say but choose not to either because of fear of rejection or out of respect for the person who can no longer be in your life for whatever the reason may be.”

Fans were recently left in tears after watching the emotional video for ‘Wish You The Best’.
