London

Album: Third Eye Blind (1997)

Songfacts®:

  • This song appears to be about a guy whose girlfriend goes to London and becomes involved in the drug culture there, which he doesn't want to be a part of. The line, "That nose is broken wide open,Your way has got me out of line. I want to get my hands on him" could represent the drug use and the frustration the guy has over the people who got her on the drugs. >>
