Million Miles Lyrics

by Bonnie Raitt

You took a part of me that I really miss
I keep askin' myself how long can it go on like this
You told yourself a lie, that's alright, I told myself one too
Well I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you.

You took the silver, you took the gold
You left me standin' out in the cold
People ask about you, I didn't tell them everything I knew
Well, I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you.

I'm driftin' in and out of dreamless sleep
Somehow my memories in a ditch, a ditch so deep
I did so many things I never did intend to do
And, I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you.

Well, I don't dare close my eyes and I don't dare wink
Maybe in the next life I'll be able to hear myself think
I feel like talkin' to somebody but I just don't know who
Well, I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you.

Rock me pretty baby, rock me all at once
Rock me for a little while, or rock me for a couple of months
You know I'll rock you too
I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you.

Well, there's voices in the night tryin' to be heard
I'm sittin' here listening to every mind-pollutin' word, and
I know, I know plenty of people put me up for a day or two
Yes, I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles
Yes, I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you.
