''Eric and I were engaged to write a song for a movie called 'Rush'. We wrote a song called 'Help Me Up' for the end of the movie... then Eric saw another place in the movie for a song and he said to me, 'I want to write a song about my boy.'' - Will Jennings (songwriter)
''It was a good opportunity for me to write about the loss of my son and have somewhere to put it, to channel it, because it didn’t look like I was going into the studio in the near future. I really wanted to be able to say something about what happened to me and the opportunity that the movie 'Rush' presented me was excellent, because it meant that I could write this song and express my feelings and have it come out quickly.'' - Eric Clapton
''My question was ‘Will I see you again?’ In a sense, it wasn't even a sad song. It was a song of belief. When it talks about there will be no more tears in heaven, I think it's a song of optimism... of reunion.'' - Eric Clapton
