  • Lyrics
  • Bedingfield was inspired to write this while walking across Tower Bridge in London frustrated at being separated from a girl he was in love with from Leeds, in the north of England. The girl was a red haired American dancer named Gina, and he was upset that the distance between them was preventing him from pursuing her. Bedingfield went home and recorded this in his bedroom with a microphone plugged to his home computer using a Making Waves computer audio program.
  • The total cost of the recording was 1,500 pounds, and after pressing some of his own copies of the song, Bedingfield sent them to various DJs, and DJ EZ included it on a compilation. After hearing it, Polydor signed him the song became a big hit. >>
