A THOUSAND MILES
At any given time there is a disparity between
where we are and where we imagine we are.


The wind blew through the streets of the city
And the wind blew through my room today
Carried my heart out the open window
You're a thousand miles away, away
a thousand miles away
You're a thousand miles away, away
a thousand miles away
In Montreal on a summer's evening
On St. Denis when the music played
All you left me was Thursday morning
You're a thousand miles away, away
a thousand miles away
(repeat)

Chorus:
All I wanted was another hour
Just another hour of yesterday
All I wanted was to walk beside you
Hear what you had to say
And as we sat there laughing and talking
Well it came to me as clear as day
That the world we live in and the world we walk in
Are a thousand miles away, away
a thousand miles away
(repeat)

Chorus

The wind blew through the streets of the city
And the wind blew through my room today
Carried my heart out the open window
You're a thousand miles away, away
a thousand miles away
(repeat)
