Ten Million Miles  by Steve Mallis July 2, 2012

 

Verse 1

There’s a place that she’s been dreaming of

It’s everything she’s longing for

And it’s only ten million miles away

Through the mountains, down the valley way

Deep beneath the sea

It makes all her other destinations

Seem so ordinarily.

chorus

Ten Million Miles just ain’t that far

It’s as close as the nearest star

And if you stretch it’s almost close enough to touch

Ten Million Miles ain’t far at all

With a whisper you can call

Just close your eyes and you’re there

If you want it bad enough

Verse 2

She wonders where she’s headed for

It’s so hard to make ends meet

A tear falls as she shuts the door

And heads out to the street

In her heart she dares to hope

She’ll have better luck today

For the journey of Ten Million Miles begins one step away.

 

Chorus

Ten Million Miles just ain’t that far

It’s as close as the nearest star

And if you stretch it’s almost close enough to touch

Ten Million Miles ain’t far at all

With a whisper you can call

Just close your eyes and you’re there

If you want it bad enough

Break

The street was lined with smiling faces

Funny songs, and pleasant places

She barely recognized the avenue

And everybody shook her hand

Every mother, child, and man

Finally her wish was coming true.

Chorus

Ten Million Miles just ain’t that far

It’s as close as the nearest star

And if you stretch it’s almost close enough to touch

Ten Million Miles ain’t far at all

With a whisper you can call

Just close your eyes and you’re there

If you want it bad enough
