“This is from my own album, Never Say Never. It might seem a bit egotistical to choose a song I wrote myself, but this one is very special to me. I play it at every one of my gigs, sometimes with the band but often just by myself. I’m glad that my wife, Kim, got to hear it before she passed away. She really loved it, and in some ways it’s about her, so I always think of her when I’m playing it.
“It’s really about being in a kind of prison, about being sentenced to something you’ve no control over, and it’s sort of how I feel now – I’m still here but Kim isn’t with me. At first it was difficult to perform it on stage, I would have to play it over and over again at soundchecks until I stopped crying, I needed to get the tears out of the way before the gig.”
