Basia – Miles Away lyrics

I'm sorry darling but I was miles away from here
(and didn't listen)
But don't worry---I'm with you
'Cause nowhere else I would rather be
Couldn't live without you
Wouldn't do without you near me

I'm so happy where I am
But too much of a good thing
Never hurt anybody
So let's leave this noisy town
And move out to tread on enchanted ground
I've got to get things ready
Don't delay it any longer

And find a little house in a valley

Where the sun's always smiling

A perfect place for you and me
Miles away

Now you see the reason
Why I'm drifting miles away
(but now without you)
Just imagine a great big world
Only waiting for us to discover it
I'm getting so impatient
Our life could be even better

In our little house in a valley
Where the sun's always smiling

Where we got some more space to breathe
Miles away

When the world gets too much
We'll hide
So no one can find us there
(says answering machine

"Phone again leave your name
Don't disturb our little home miles away.")

Let's find a little house in a valley
Where the sun's always smiling

My neighbors are Jeff and Jill

Miles away---somewhere
Miles away
