There was a time, looking through myself, wanting to pretend
If I escaped I could fill myself, I don’t think you can
Been far and wide but that hole inside never really leaves
I went away
What I really left, left behind was me
It’s telling me to be on my way home
Million miles away
A million miles away
I can’t stay, I can’t stay
A million miles away

Each passing day, every passing face seems like such a blur
I long to be home silently, lying next to her
Just to get back by her side is all, all I need to be
I went away
What I really left, left behind was me
I need to be getting on my way home
Million miles away
A million miles away
I can’t take, I can’t take
A million miles away

It’s telling me to be on my way home
I can’t take, I can’t take
Million miles away
I can’t take, I can’t take
Million miles away
I can’t take, I can’t take
Million miles away
I can’t take, I can’t take
Million miles away
I can’t take (There was a time)
I can’t take (Looking through myself)
Million miles away (Wanting to pretend)
I can’t take (If I escaped)
I can’t take (I could fill myself)
Million miles away (I don’t think you can)
I can’t take (Each passing day)
I can’t take (Every passing face)
Million miles away (Seems like such a blur)
I can’t take (I long to be)
I can’t take (Home silently)
Million miles away (Lying next to her)
