Long Distance

This was the first single from the second album, Ether Song. According to the critics this is the song that gave Turin Brakes balls… Well if they say so… I just think it’s an amazing song!

Olly: ‘Long Distance’ is a celebration of the moment when you finally let someone get under your skin. Coming from an isolated place, having always been at a distance, and finally letting someone else into your world. That moment when you finally let someone in. That songs just that moment, but exploited. And that’s scary which is why the song sounds a bit like its going to break or crack.

Well if this gets ugly, I’d swear this ain’t our last chance.
The vultures that circle my head are flying alongside.
The world’s turning…

I let somebody get under my skin,
Long distance losing is all that I’ve seen,
Now there’s a river,
Now there’s a river.

Nothing can save me, my reserve betrayed me, here come the hurricanes.
I’m burning to get there, the middle of nowhere, storm warnings flicker while,
The world’s turning…

I let somebody get under my skin,
Long distance losing is all that I’ve seen,
Now there’s a river,
Now there’s a river.

I let somebody get under my skin,
Long distance losing is all that I’ve seen,
Now there’s a river,
Now there’s a river.
