1000 Miles Lyrics

Runway four, flight 209 - Teardrop falls, we start to climb
This window seat proved a poor choice
It shows the dream that's been destroyed
A little baby starts to cry - Hey, I would too, if not for pride
I owe so much to pride, it's true - It brought an end to me and you

But if I could, I'd turn around - Set my feet back on the ground
'Cause all this plane ride holds for me - Is a thousand miles of misery

I hear the engines, watch the clouds
The whole damn world looks distant now
But I can't seem to put no space
Between my cold heart and your sweet face

But if I could, I'd turn around - Set my feet back on the ground
'Cause all this plane ride holds for me - Is a thousand miles of misery

'Cause all this plane ride holds for me - Is a thousand miles of misery
