"Miles Away" is the second track of my monthly releases. It's about realizing that although you that someone was close, they were really no where near.


Miles away
Miles away
I thought you were close
But you were miles away

I hoped you'd stay
I hoped you'd stay
But you never were in park
You were miles away

That horizon line
To you looked so fine
And no matter how hard I'd try
I couldn't get it off your mind
And I would pray
That each and every day
That the good lord would bring closer
But the devil, he pulled you over
And took you miles away

In the exit lane
In the exit lane
You had your signal on
In the exit lane

But I was too vain
Yes, I was too vain
I didn't see you turn
And now you're miles away

The experience escalates when backed by his band, The Cable 22's, consisting of bassist Chris McLean and drummer Michael Hunter. ... more
