I can't fall asleep tonight
I'm not the same without you
Since I've been gone, since I've been gone
When I lay down at night
Nobody's here to catch the tears I cry
Can't wait to be home, wait to be home

A million more miles till I get to see you
A thousand more minutes I know I'll have to go through
Counting my, my way back to you
Back to you
A hundred more thoughts of us to consume me 
Too many steps till you're right in front of me
Counting my, my way back to you
Back to you

I keep good company
But most days I'm still lonely
Without you here, without you here
I try to do my thing
But I just might go insane
Without you near, without you near

A million more miles till I get to see you
A thousand more minutes I know I'll have to go through
Counting my, my way back to you
Back to you
A hundred more thoughts of us too consume me
Too many steps till you're right in front of me
Counting my, my way back to you
Back to you

If you could travel the world
With me I'd feel so complete
We'd have the time of our lives
Right now, I keep waiting
A little longer, to be by your side

A million more miles till I get to see you
A thousand more minutes I know I'll have to go through
Counting my, my way back to you
Back to you
A hundred more thoughts of us too consume me
Too many steps till you're right in front of me
Counting my, my way back to you
Back to you

A million more miles till I get to see you
A thousand more minutes I know I'll have to go through
Counting my, my way back to you
Back to you
A hundred more thoughts of us too consume me
Too many steps till you're right in front of me
Counting my, my way back to you
Back to you

    I think it's about someone you love who is in the military and you keep counting the minutes until they come home. :)

    For me it has many different meanings.. Most of the people relates to this song when they lost someone.. Like their boyfriend or someone really really close to their hearts like a sister or a dad or a mom or even a bestfriend. I can relate to this song since me and my boyfriend lives far from each other.. As in thousand miles far. So yeah, you get what i mean. But to christina, i think its for her bestfriend. Since she misses her as she goes on tours out of the country... So yeah thats my understanding about this song :)

    This song reminds me of my ex. Except for the chorus, because i never see him anymore. Nor do i talk to him. Oh well.
