    We had forever
    We never got it together


    Allen wrote on Twitter on October 27, 2015: "5 years ago today I was admitted to hospital. 4 days later I delivered a beautiful baby boy, but sadly he didn't make it. It's unlike me to discuss this sort of thing so publicly but I wrote this song in his memory when writing something for @panmovie"
  • The song was written by Allen with Keane keyboardist and songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley.
