A Million Miles From Anywhere

from by Nicholas Wells

lyrics

And every year feels like it was yesterday
Still yesterday’s over and done
And how could I know it all would go away
And leave me here without anyone

Everyone I’ve known has left or gone crazy
I didn’t have time to say goodbye
Was trying to hard just to save me
From all the tears I’ve yet to cry

And I’m a million miles from anywhere
I’m a man without a home
Just a boat out on an endless sea
Sailing all alone
So what the hell am I supposed to do
When everything is falling through
I’m stolen from the life that I once knew

What do you do when you’ve got nowhere to turn
And nobody there to shield your eyes
I’m watching the life around me crash and burn
And every day’s a new surprise

And I’m a million miles from anywhere
I’m a man without a home
Just a boat out on an endless sea
Sailing all alone
So what the hell am I supposed to do
When everything is falling through
I’m stolen from the life that I once knew

Just trying to find some shelter as it all goes wrong
I’ve lost so many battles but I’m standing strong
And someday I’ll forget the pain inside my heart
And move along

And every year feels like it was yesterday
Still yesterday’s over and done

And I’m a million miles from anywhere
I’m a man without a home
Just a boat out on an endless sea
Sailing all alone
So what the hell am I supposed to do
When everything is falling through
I’m stolen from the life that I once knew
