It was subsequently released as a CD and 7" vinyl single in the UK on the 5 March 2007.
The song was written by Nic to comfort his family after his father's death. He is quoted as saying "It was inevitable I would write a song that dealt with all of that, but it was almost too big a subject for me to handle," Nic also says. "Then I got a phone call from my mum saying everyone was depressed so I wrote the song through Dad's eyes, what he would say to help everyone through. We recorded it in one take, but it was emotional, very heavy. We couldn't be happier with this album."
