Songs We Love is a series and a podcast that looks at the stories behind some of the songs we're playing on our new music discovery stream, WUNC Music.

On this episode, Eric Hodge chats with Durham's Phil Cook about 'Miles Away,' the first single from his new album People Are My Drug.

Cook co-wrote the song with Sylvan Esso's Amelia Meath. Its lyrics touch on both the literal and metaphorical issues of distance that we often feel in relationships.

We all know, if you're in a relationship you can be sitting right next to somebody and you couldn't be farther away from them.
