I'm a mile away from where I belong
I'm a mile away from home.
I'm lying awake at the thought of you gone,
And I'm a mile away from home.

On top of the world he thought,
Let down when he hit the spot
Dead stare in the mirror as he drove.
Had room for growing up
He got cold feet so he had to run
To a city with a history of love.
Knowing she relies on me,
But I'm on my way to an unpredicted fall.
Feet under the covers now,
Lips sealed tight till I here a sound;
The sound of a soon redeeming call.

I'm a mile away from where I belong
I'm a mile away from home.
I'm lying awake at the thought of you gone,
And I'm a mile away from home.

Now I know I never dreamed to be a movie star
But I'm hiding in the Hollywood hills.
I've learned regret from a cowards mouth,
Would'nt let her know how I feel.
Held up now I am stuck in line,
Can barely get around on the 405.
Headed downtown in a half-full automobile.
Now but deep inside I see,
The light I'm a runaway victim left alone.
At night though you lay so far,
We both stare out at the same old stars;
Wishing for direction where to go.

Oh, but I could never forget
The guilty look in your eyes at the end.
I walk the line like a merry-go-round,
Thought I learned but I lost you again.
And all at once if the world stops spinning
Maybe you could let me win,
Oh, but I could never forget
The guilty look in your eyes at the end.
