A middle-aged mother and her two grown up children are spending Christmas together. We see Christmas day play out in front of us. There are indications that someone is absent - a rocking chair rocks back and forth autonomously, there’s an empty stocking and an empty mug. The family of three are uncomfortably, unrealistically full of glee and seem oblivious to these incongruous aspects. Something's clearly not right. Finally they're forced to confront the missing figure when he flickers into view…

If you don't listen too carefully, the track sounds like a typical sweet Christmas song but it's actually an exploration of the process of forgiving someone that has hurt you deeply.

The song was originally about being hurt by the sudden and unexplained disappearance of a romantic partner that, much later, just as suddenly reappears. The video will be vague enough to have multiple interpretations but is hinting at a far more serious offence - child abuse, with a percentage of the track's income going to HAVOCA - Help for Adult Victims of Child Abuse.
