"Never There" is the first single from Cake's third album Prolonging the Magic. The song spent 3 weeks at #1 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart, surpassing "The Distance" as the band's highest-charting single (#4). "Never There" was the band's first song to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 78.
The lyrics are from the viewpoint of a lover who is frustrated that, while his beloved claims to love him back, her actions indicate that she does not really care about him.
The music video for "Never There" features Cake performing in a western-style bar, while a story arc covers a trucker calling his girlfriend on a pay phone and she never answers as she is too busy partying with male body builders in speedos.
