a million miles away lyrics – jim boyd

when i see your face in the firelight
i wonder how the fire started
some people might call you pretty
but i’d call you broken-hearted
and i’ve got a map in my pocket
that has your name written in blue
i’ll follow you like a river
if you just guide me through
chorus:
let’s rent a car and drive it,
a million miles away
let’s start a fire and survive it.
a million miles away
let’s steal the sun and hide it,
a million miles away
let’s find a storm and ride it,
a million miles away
when i see you dance in the barlight
i wonder when the song’ll end
some people might think you graceful
but i think you’re brittle and bent
and i’ve got a map in my pocket
where every town is named for you
i’ll make a stop in all of ’em
if you just guide me through
chorus
when i see you read by the candlelight
i wonder if you’ll hurt your eyes
some people like happy endings
but i’ve always liked a surprise
and i’ve got a map here in my pocket
that shows where lucifer fell
ya i’ll fall from heaven
if you guide me through h*ll
