Someone send a runner
Through the weather that I'm under
For the feeling that I lost today
Someone send a runner
For the feeling that I lost today

Someone send a runner
Through the weather that I'm under
For the feeling that I lost today
Someone send a runner
For the feeling that I lost today

You must be somewhere in London
You must be loving your life in the rain
You must be somewhere in London
Walking Abbey Lane

I don't even think to make
I don't even think to make
I don't even think to make corrections

Famous angels never come through England
England gets the ones you never need
I'm in a Los Angeles cathedral
Minor singin' airheads sing for me

Put an ocean and a river between everybody else
Between everything, yourself and home
Put an ocean and a river
Between everything, yourself and home

You must be somewhere in London
You must be loving your life in the rain
You must be somewhere in London
Walking Abbey Lane

I don't even think to make
I don't even think to make
I don't even think to make corrections

Famous angels never come through England
England gets the ones you never need
I'm in a Los Angeles cathedral
Minor singin' airheads sing for me

Afraid of the house, stay the night with the sinners
Afraid of the house, stay the night with the sinners
Afraid of the house, 'cause they're desperate to entertain
Afraid of the house, stay the night with the sinners
Afraid of the house, stay the night with the sinners
Afraid of the house, 'cause they're desperate to entertain
Afraid of the house, stay the night with the sinners
Afraid of the house, stay the night with the sinners
Afraid of the house, 'cause they're desperate to entertain
Afraid of the house, stay the night with the sinners
Afraid of the house, stay the night with the sinners
Afraid of the house, cause they're desperate to entertain

    General CommentI agree the lyrics evoke "love lost." The line about not making corrections is kind of the key. The narrator keeps getting dumped and doesn't think to change himself to prevent these failed relationships from continuously failing. However, he's self-aware enough in the song to think about making corrections, if not real life.

    The girl is an American who moved to England. The narrator is helpless to this fact and there's nothing he can do to save the relationship. So he sits at some music event(Los Angeles cathedral) listening to bad musicians or at least musicians without any real depth to their art (the minor singing airheads) then hangs out with them after to probably get loaded and forget about his depression because he doesn't want to go home and think about the break up. (afraid of the house, stayed the night with the sinners)
