"Long Distance" as written by and Oliver/paridjanian Knights....
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,
It calmed 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

    General CommentThis is by far their best song. Fantastic song. I'm guessing the lyrics is about the feeling of losing someone.

    General CommentThis song carries a lot of meaning to me. I don't know what Turin Breaks intended - but I play it every time I need to get my head around the fact that I had an affair with someone living in another country. Playing it over and over again ... the words articulate beautifully how a loser like me feels...and I envy the talent of such songwriters to be able to provoke emotions in this way.

    General CommentThe song is about the moment you open up to someone, letting the person get close to you. The moment you "let somebody get under your skin" is scary and nice at the same time. It can go right and wrong. It's the moment where you reach out and don't know what's going to happen. I think.
