Liner Notes: 

I just had the most amazing week and a half and it's taken awhile to come back down to the ground... and now... the closer to the ground I get, the sadder I'm getting, but still smiling from all the awesome memories and cannot wait for more!!

Lyrics: 

"Miles and Miles Away"
©2019 Write & Wrong Music

Sitting on ocean's edge, thoughts rolling in
Waves getting closer, the sand is sinking
Wishin' you were here laying next to me
On this beautiful day, beautiful beach

Sparkling sun on water, seashore glitters
As warm as it is I get a shiver
Missing the feeling of having you here
Will be awhile and that brings me to tears

Everything's perfect except the amount of space between us
You are miles and miles and miles away
Life has a way of making it all turn out the way it should
So we wait and see what comes our way
While you're miles and miles and miles away

Sky above sends shadows, I haven't moved
Tide's ebbing further, I'm learning my truths
Heaven's bright star is fading into night
Moon so black while I'm dreaming of your light

You make me laugh
You make me smile
But I'm so sad it's
Gonna be awhile
So for now I'll dream
Of the next time

Everything's perfect except the amount of space between us
You are miles and miles and miles away
Life has a way of making it all turn out the way it should
So we wait and see what comes our way
While you're miles and miles and miles away

Wait and see
Wait and see

Wait and see what comes our way
While you're miles and miles and miles away

What incredibly touching, heartfelt lyrics. I feel the longing. "Everything's perfect except the amount of space between us" Perfect. Love that chorus.

you have ecapsulated the loneliness of the happiness that does not extend beyond ones self.

This song makes me miss the beach... I know it's really more about missing a person, but I just miss the beach Biggrin I like that comparison with the moon, like it is so dark in comparison. The chorus seems very drawn out in my head when I end up singing it to myself, like it could just go "miles and miles and miles and miles and..." but then Roger Daltrey already did that in that Who song too.

Coincidentally, I watched a few episodes of this Amazon show called Patriot, about a CIA officer who is also a folk singer, and writes these very, uh, "revealing" songs and performs them in open mikes. This sounds like a song he might sing about his wife.

Very nice telling of longing. Loving the water ebbing and the shadows forming despite the perfect surroundings something very important is missing, but also the learing your own truths in the process means the reunion will be of stronger people. Good job, my friend!
