China all the way to New York
I can feel the distance getting close
You're right next to me but I need an airplane
I can feel the distance as you breathe

    This song have a really special place in my heart. It means a lot to me. I think that we live in very superficial world and this song for me is about need for deep conection, about big emotional needs. It's really deep and very touching and also beautiful. I feel this way many times. Sometimes even when we really love somebody we just can't conect and distance grows and grows and it can be really heartbreaking and painful. I see this many times.

    "Love song. There's been a side to me that's always been drawn to heart-wrenching love songs. And sometimes I find that you don't get those necessarily just in the contemporary singer-songwriter world, but also with musical theater, Gershwin, classics. I think that "China" probably came after a big bout of listening to Barbra Streisand. Because you know, if anyone can break your heart, she could."

    Still the dullest song in TA's catalogue after all these years.

    I hated this song for the longest time, but in light of recent heartbreak it has grown on me considerably. Go figure.
