about

This song was about a very specific moment in time, but all of our friends from Detroit who live in L.A. now think it's about them, so we're just going to go with that...

lyrics

2339 miles from Detroit city
to the land of fallen angels and earthquakes
where the people are so pretty
I could be closer to you now
I map it out and I write it down
but there's no time and there's no way
I was just missing you today
Everybody's asking where you are
and how you've been
While I've been counting down day by day
'til you come back again
I could be closer to you now
I map it out and I write it down
but there's no time and there's no way
I was just missing you today
How many days has it been
are you settling down are you fitting in
have you chosen the sun over the snow
the Hollywood sign
over the burned down Detroit skyline
Beverly Hills
over the broke down rusty steel mill
or Venice Beach
over the fair down on 4th street
The L.A. scene over me
are you over me?
The L.A. scene over me
are you over me?
I wait it out I'll give you time
I'll be right here holding the line
But I should warn you I might let go
and if I do there's something you should know
it's only 2339 miles to Detroit City
