This piano elegy was inspired by the death of an old friend in prison. "He was in a bad crowd, but he was like a big brother; he always looked after me," Delilah told The Independent. "I remember I was in New York, working. It was 3am and I was in the studio and I got a call from a friend of his saying he'd been in a fight and probably wasn't going to make it.
