about

When I brought the songs to Clay, who produced the record, he honed in on this one and I think we both felt it's the heart of the record.

It was in a drop D tuning, and I'd never written a chorus like this before, plus the whole song only has two chords. I was definitely in foreign territory, pardon the pun.

lyrics

Well you're not here for two more weeks
so I re-read that email you sent me
before you left

and I don't really know you
Oh, but I want to...
If I get drunk and stupid
might say something foolish but
i still don't think i'll ever shake this thing
while...

You're in London
You're in London
You're in London
And I guess your cell phone, it don't work over there
You're in London, but I don't care

So you're not here, so I'm left with this song
These words and sounds strung along a line
and these few chords, they come in time
and I go back and forth,
in my mind I go back and forth,
and forth and back...
I’m inventing my own distractions
while....

You're in London
You're in London
You're in London
And I guess your fingers don't work over there
You're in London, and I don't care

so maybe you kiss somebody you miss me and so you kiss somebody you miss me and so you kiss somebody you miss me and so you kiss somebody you miss me and so you kiss somebody you miss me and so you kiss somebody you kiss me and so you kiss somebody who looks like me
but i'm just fine
though those arms aren't mine
while...

You're in London
You're in London
You're in London
And I guess your dumb heart, it don't work over there
And you're in London
but I don't care

You're In London
I'm in over my head
You're in London
I'm in love and
You're in London
and I'm in love
I just might be in love

But you're not here
for two more weeks
so I re-read that e-mail you sent me…
