million miles lyrics – bob dylan

you took a part of me that i really miss
i keep asking myself how long it can go on like this
you told yourself a lie
thats alright mama i told myself one too
i try to get closer but im still a million miles from you

you took the silver, you took the gold
you left me standing out in the cold
people asked about you, i didnt tell them everything i knew
well i try to get closer but im still a million miles from you

im driftin in and out of dreamless sleep
somehow my memorys in a ditch so deep
did so many things i never did intend to do
and i try to get closer but im still a million miles from you

i need your love so bad, turn your lamp down low
i need every bit of it for the places that i go
sometimes i wonder, tell us just what its all coming to
well i try to get closer but im still a million miles from you

well i dont dare close my eyes and i dont dare wink
maybe in the next life ill be able to hear myself think
feel like talking to somebody but i just dont know who
well i try to get closer but im still a million miles from you

yes the last thing you said before you hit the street
gonna find me a janitor to sweep me off my feet
i said thats alright mama you, you do what you gotta do
well i try to get closer im still a million miles from you

rock me pretty baby rock me all at once, rock me for a little while
rock me for a couple of months
and ill rock you too
i try to get closer but im still a million miles from you

well theres voices in the night trying to be heard
im sittin here listenin to every mind-pollutin word
i know plenty of people put me up for a day or two
yes i try to get closer but im still a million miles from you
