Streetcar

Album: Hours (2005)
Charted: 15
  • This was the first single released from the band's second album. It ended up being the bands fourth consecutive Top 20 single in the UK by debuting at number #15.
  • Frontman Matthew Davies writes about a long distance relationship that he wants to continue, but ends when they realize it was too hard to keep alive.
  • Devoted fans of Funeral For A Friend used the dial tones at the beginning of the song to figure out the number being called, which happened to be Davies' actual phone number, allowing fans to ring him at his home. Of course, he changed his number immediately. >>
