Sophie B. Hawkins Miles Away Lyrics

Father she’s playing our song

But I don’t wanna dance tonight

You have just slipped away

And I’m caught inside the cage again

I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t

‘Cause I don’t wanna fight

I wish I was miles away

Not feeling anything

You taught me to hide

Well I’m frightened of my mind

You taught me to smile

When I’m crying inside

I’m black and I’m blue and I’m wondering

Where are you

I wish I was there too

with you

Miles away

Not feeling anything

Just you and I again

Traveling for weeks on end

Father I’m slipping again

I only wanna feel my life

Raining inside my heart

Tearing nobody’s world apart

And if I fly let me take you along

And if I fall let me fall in your arms

Nobody will rescue me if they don’t know I’m gone

Tonight the sea is black and calm

And you are

Miles away

Not feeling anything

Closing your eyes again

Traveling for weeks on end

We were miles away

Not feeling any pain

Just you and I again

Gliding for weeks on end

Hiding

Crying

Father
