Making my way downtown, walking fast
Faces pass and I'm home bound
Staring blankly ahead, just making my way
Making my way down through the crowd...

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder

If I could fall into the sky
Do you think time would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you
Tonight

It's always times like these when I think of you
And I wonder if you ever think of me...
'Cause Everything's so wrong and I don't belong
Living in your precious memories...

'Cause I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder

If I could fall into the sky
Do you think time would pass me by oh
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you...
Tonight

And I... , I...
Don't want to let you know
I... , I...
Drown in your memory
I... , I...
Don't want to let this go
I, I don't...

Making my way downtown, walking fast
Faces passed and I'm home bound
Staring blankly ahead, just making my way
Making my way down through the crowd...

And I still need you
And I still miss you
And now I wonder

If I could fall into the sky
Do you think time would pass us by
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you

If I could fall into the sky
Do you think time would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you
If I could just hold you
Tonight

    This song is so nice. It means that no matter how far, or long it takes to get to the one she loves, she will get there someway and somehow, and she will never stop. I love this song. I first heard it on White Chicks. lol funny right?

    I love this song! She has a very nice voice adn she's one of the only singers I have seen playing the piano which is cool. I think this song means that she would walk any distance just to get to the one she loves.
