Million Miles

You took a part of me that I really miss

I keep asking myself how long it can go on like this

You told yourself a lie; that's all right mama, I told myself one too

I'm trying to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you

.

You took the silver, you took the gold

You left me standing out in the cold

People ask about you; I didn't tell them everything I knew

Well I'm trying to get closer, but I'm still a million miles from you

.

I'm drifting in and out of dreamless sleep

Throwing all my memories in a ditch so deep

Did so many things I never did intend to do

Well I'm trying to get closer, but I'm still a million miles from you

.

I need your love so bad, turn your lamp down low

I need every bit of it for the places that I go

Sometimes I wonder just what it's all coming to

Well I'm tryin' to get closer, but I'm still a million miles from you

.

Well I don't dare close my eyes and I don't dare wink

Maybe in the next life I'll be able to hear myself think

Feel like talking to somebody but I just don't know who

Well, I'm tryin' to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you

.

The last thing you said before you hit the street

"Gonna find me a janitor to sweep me off my feet"

I said, "That's all right mama.... you..... you do what you gotta do"

Well, I'm tryin' to get closer; I'm still a million miles from you

.

Rock me, pretty baby, rock me 'til everything gets real

Rock me for a little while, rock me 'til there's nothing left to feel

And I'll rock you too

I'm tryin' to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you

.

Well, there's voices in the night trying to be heard

I'm sitting here listening to every mind polluting word

I know plenty of people who would put me up for a day or two

Yes, I'm tryin' to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you

.
