Tesla

Miles Away

Such a heavy price to pay, all the time that I've spent missing home
And I try not to complain, but sometimes it won't leave me alone
And I think I know myself better than anyone else
Cause I'm me, I oughta know, what I want, what I need, what's inside of me
Maybe something that I took to get outta my head, or took for the thrill
The way I dress, the way that I look, or the way that I pay the bills

'Cause you're miles away, miles away, how could you be so wrong
'Cause you're miles away, miles away, how could you know the score

All eyes on the stage, all the glitter and glow
Move to the rhythm, wile striking a pose
Music and melody, and words to a poem
You think that you know me, you're not even close

Though I'm living out my dream, wasn't long 'til I figured it out
Nothing ever comes for free, even here on the merry-go-round
So you wanna take a ride, rollin', and living the life
'Cause you think I got it made, well, in case you don't know, my friend died today
And it's tearing me apart, if I knew what to say, don't know where to start
I reached down in my heart, and with paper an pen put it in a song

'Cause you're miles away, miles away, how could you be so wrong
'Cause you're miles away, miles away, how could you know the score

All eyes on the stage, all the glitter and glow
Move to the rhythm, wile striking a pose
Music and melody, and words to a poem
You think that you know me, you're not even close

The pages have burned but they're written in stone
Now, what will become of us, nobody knows
And the wheel keeps on turning, I rise and I fall
And I try to get back, but I'm lost in it all
And I look all around, and I see that it's gone
You're miles away, miles away

Yeah, you're miles away, yeah, you're miles away
Miles away, yeah, you're miles away
