Keane were formed in 1994 by Tom Chaplin,Tim Rice-Oxley,Richard Hughes,Jesse Quin and Dominic Scott,Scott left the band in 2001.
Rice-Oxley explained the songs meaning.’It’s about feeling that you’ve been left behind by an old friend or lover and about hoping that you’ll be reunited one day.It’s a sad and angry song,but also full of hope.I think I’m right in saying that in hospital when someone is ill and has to spend a lot of time in bed they can become ‘bedshaped.’
‘You’ll follow me back,with the sun in your eyes and on your own.
