Matt Cardle: 'Run For Your Life'

Matt Cardle's revealed he was cried when he recorded 'Run For Your Life' the track written by Gary Barlow.

Matt says, "I was apprehensive prior to hearing it, because I really wanted to like it because I’m not going to stand up there and pour my heart in to something that I don’t believe in.

"But it's so true, it's about being a crap boyfriend and telling your girlfriend to run and find someone that can really give them what they deserve out of a relationship.

"I just sort of got it. With songs like that, when I was recording, no word of a lie, I was crying in the vocal booth. My girlfriend was on tour and I was hungover and all that sort of stuff, and I ended up in tears doing it. I really do believe in the song. “I’ve been trying to write a song like that, but mine were always three and half minutes of me slating myself."
