Savatage – Miles Away lyrics

And a cool, cool rain comes down
On a world burned by the sun
And the moon arises like a child
And the moment is undone
And the stars never say what they see
As the moon flirts with shadows it makes
Through the fallen trees
Some would wait for the morning light
But I fall asleep 'til I'm safe
In the arms of night


Let the darkness roll in
Let it wipe the light away
In the distance
Always calling
Morpheus he beckons play
Still the morning is preordained
But I believe light is the source of all our pain
It reveals the smallest sin
But dark covers all and will always take you
Armed and gunning
I'll be running
Always just before the day
In the distance
Day is dawning
But I'm already miles away, miles away

In the night there's wonder
Always there for you to see
In the light of morning
Visions fade
And dreams can flee

With the darkness the night forgives
Covers our scars and lets
The lost souls live
And the morning's a distant fear
But if we move fast they'll never find us

Armed and gunning
I'll be running
Through a world that's in decay
Let them thunder, stare and wonder
Cause I'm already miles away, miles away, yeah
Oooh miles away

I've been running
Armed and gunning
Always just before the day
In the distance
Day is dawning
But I'm already miles away
Miles away yeah yeah yeah yeah
Miles miles away
Miles away yeah
Miles miles away, oooh yeah
Away, away, away

And the rain comes down
