In the million words we did not speak
Something in the silence slowly engulfes me
It was a time, a place, a face I can't forget
I keep a picture of you in the back of my head

CHORUS:
Once upon a time, just ten thousand miles ago
Wonder what I could have found
If I went to Chicago
In much too deep to ever know
What I might have found
If I went to Chicago

I could fly right up and through your skies
But there's somewhere else my faith lies
So the story's all that ever could have been
That's where this movie starts and where it ends

-CHORUS-

I could write you back
And send a part of me
Cause you're the closet thing to perfection
That I've ever seen

Once upon a time, ten thousand miles ago
Wonder what I could have found
If I went to Chicago
In much too deep to ever know
What I might have found
If I went to Chicago

(Repeat Chorus 2x)

Ooh yeah
To Chicago
Ooh yeah to Chicago
Ooh yeah to Chicago
Ooh yeah yeah Chicago
