“I Won’t Crumble With You If You Fall – the opening song [to the album Surrounded By Time] and my wife – God bless her – when she knew she had lung cancer and it was incurable, and I said: ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen.’
“Because it happened pretty quick,” The Voice UK judge commented. “And she said: ‘Don’t fall with me. I’ve got to go, I’ve got to leave, but you’ve got to carry on here.’
“And she said to my son Mark and myself, she said: ‘You two have got to mentor one another no. You’ve got to carry on’.
“That song, I Won’t Crumble – I’ll do anything for you when I get up in the morning and I’ll do anything for you but I won’t crumble if you fall,” he explained.
