And I Miss You

[Everything But the Girl’s Amplified Heart* on the stereo]

“…And I don't need reminding
how loud the phone can ring
when you're waiting for news

Flashback to 5 hours earlier:

Sweetie: Mia? Mia? Wake up, Mia. Come on. Wake up.

Mia (pulling eye shade off her face to rub eyes): Huh? Huh? What is it?

Sweetie: It’s your cousin on the phone. He wants me to wake you up.

Mia sits bolt upright in bed and reaches for the phone.

Mia (in a sleepy voice): Hello?

I step off the train,
I'm walking down your street again,
and past your door,
but you don't live there anymore

*lyrics by Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt
