Lyrics 1000 Miles Away

Estimated time of arrival 9:30 a.m.
Been up before the sun and now I'm tired before
I even begin
I got so much work in front of me
It stretches out far as the eye can see
I can see
Spend half my life in airports doing crosswords and attempting to sleep
And when the bar is open then you'll often find me warming a seat
I never find a place where I can stay
I'd rather be a thousand miles away
Thousand miles away
Working for yourself sometimes ain't all that it's cracked up to be
It can be as lonely at the top as at the bottom of that corporate tree
I'm told I'm going places who can say?
I might arrive but I'll be gone the very next day
I must be on my way
A thousand miles away
Promised to myself someday I'd take the time and try to make sense
Out of all those opportunities
I've lost from trying to sit on the fence
But right now I've got no time for yesterday
Yesterday's a thousand miles away
Thousand miles away
A thousand miles away
A thousand miles away
What was that that you were trying to say?
I guess I was a thousand miles away hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey hey
A thousand miles away
Sing it again
Ooh yeah
A thousand miles away
Sing it again
Ooh yeah
A thousand miles away
Sing it again
Yeah hey
A thousand miles away
Sing it again
