Brantley Gilbert – More Than Miles lyrics

Maybe I should take that picture off the dashboard
Before memory hits the brakes and takes the wheel
I bet she's still crying on that front porch
Yeah, this time, it's gonna take some time to heal

'Cause I'm on my way to Tennessee
Singing "Georgia On My Mind"
Chasing what they say is a dream
Thinking maybe, it ain't mine
'Cause that girl's in every song I sing
She's in every song I write
And that six string riding in the seat
Won't keep me warm tonight
God, what am I supposed to do
There's more than miles in my rear view

Well, I'm headed north to what I swore I wanted
Trying not to buy into my doubts
But I just can't seem to keep myself from wondering
Why I'm jealous of all them headlights headed south

'Cause I'm on my way to Tennessee
Singing "Georgia On My Mind"
Chasing what they say is a dream
Thinking maybe, it ain't mine
'Cause that girl's in every song I sing
She's in every song I write
And that six string riding in the seat
Won't keep me warm tonight
God, what am I supposed to do
There's still more than miles in my rear view

Yeah, more than miles

I've been changing lanes without my mirrors
'Cause every time I look behind me
I see her, I think I just realized how much I need her

Damn

So, I'm turning back for Georgia
Stopping short of Tennessee
I can't put my dreams before her
Man, I need her here with me
'Cause that girl's in every song I sing
She's in every song I write
And that six string riding in her seat
Can sleep in back tonight
Now, I know what I'm supposed to do
There's still more than miles in my rear view

More than miles
Yeah
There's more than miles

    This song means a lot to me. The story is that I was going through a tough time while in a residential treatment facility. I was listening to my mp3 player. Then, this song turned on. I started singing along. Right towards the middle of the song I started to tear up then, by the end of the song, I caught myself putting this song on repeat. So, I listened to this song one more time and right after the first verse, during the chorus I realized I had tears rolling down my cheeks. Then, it was time for me to do an activity. As I was sitting in the activity, I was basically bawling my eyes out. Every one that was in my group kept asking me if I was okay. I couldn't bring myself to say anything. All I could bring myself to do was to continue to keep crying. Until the person that I took as my big brother came over by me and said "Hey, lil sis was wrong." At the same time I was still listening to the song. So, then he grabbed my mp3 player and looked at the song that was playing. Then, he just sat there with me. He then gave me a hug and I just sat there wrapped in his arms and kept crying. I swear we sat there for about 3 1/2 hours. The staff just sat there and let it happen. But, it was the staff that we both liked and didn't care what me and my big brother did. So, the staff let us sit there and be in a hug and just let me cry.
