Written following the tragic death of his four-year-old son, Conor, who fell from a window of the 53rd-floor New York apartment, this is Clapton's most personal song. In fact, it's right up there with anyone's most personal song. He stopped playing it in 2004, explaining, "I didn't feel the loss anymore, which is so much a part of performing those songs. I really have to connect with the feelings that were there when I wrote them. They're kind of gone and I really don't want them to come back, particularly."
