Morning in LA

  • songfacts ®
  • A recurrent theme of the Friends album is the scattering of old pals and lovers. "I need to talk to my friends," they admit on this song. "Tell them what I'm feeling."

    Bassist Charles Cave, White Lies' main lyricist, commented: "In the past couple of years, we've noticed friends' life situations causing them to make big decisions – marriages, kids, moving out of London. Friendships have begun to feel adult, and our perception of time has changed. As kids, if you didn't see a mate for a fortnight, you'd wonder what was wrong. Now you might not see someone for six months and it doesn't matter."
