Across the long last great divide
The distant longing never dies
And all the pain of a dream that was never known
Never fades, no
That's alright, someday I'll find you
I tell myself most every night

You seem so far and away
Another life, another time and place
Oh, oh, if only I could find you
So far and away
It's something lost I never will replace
It seems so far away

A love I'll never come to see
And though I've tried can't let it be
My God, it aches for the longing it only grows
Every day
I only bleed when I'm all alone
They say in time give it tomorrow
But to me that's just a lie

You seem so far and away
Another life, another time and place
Oh, oh, if only I could find you
So far and away
I'm waiting on a miracle today
It seems so far away

(Solo)

So if you hear this last refrain
I hope you know that I still wait
I can't let go, all I need is a miracle
And today all I need is a miracle
Oh, oh, oh, yeah

It seems so far and away
Another life, another time and place
Oh, oh, I hope these words will find you
So far and away
It's something lost I never will replace
No, I'm begging for a miracle today
Hey, hey, hey

(Solo)

And I wait so long
And I wait so long
So alone, so alone

    He's in love with a girl, but she's in a relationship and so is he...yet they can't let go...and he's pouring his heart and soul out in this song...holding out for that "miracle" that somehow, some way and some day they will be in each others arms

    To me this song is about a man that has lost the love of his life. He knows it's over, but he can't accept what's happened. He still is madly in love with her, and he needs a miracle for her to have a change of heart. Yet, even the miracle seems distant to him.

    For me, it's the guy i loved, still love, now living on the other side of the world. It ain't ever going to happen and this tells it how it is! I love it, all i need is a miracle...
