"MILES AWAY" as written by and Paul Taylor....
So this is love, or so you tell me
As you're walkin', out the door
The months go by, and I know for certain
It's not the love, I'm lookin' for

Some times, just for a moment,
I reach out, hope you're still there

Miles away,
No, you're never turnin' back,
I just can't wait anymore
Miles away,
Nothin' left of what we had,
Just when I needed you most
You were miles away

It's hard to tell, what you're goin' through
You kept your feelings locked inside of you
Open your heart, and chances are
What you're feelin', I'm feelin' too

If only, just for a moment
Hold on, to the dreams that we had

Miles away,
No, you're never turnin' back,
I just can't wait anymore

Miles away,
Nothin' left of what we had,
Just when I needed you most
You were miles away

When times were tough, and you were down and out
Who was there by your side?
Now you've gone, I'm so tired of bein' alone
With only your promises

The lonliness just fades away,
Thoughts of you, just memories
No cryin' now, for what we're missin'
Time won't forget what you meant to me

If you hold me, just for a moment
Hold on, to the dreams that we had

Miles away,
No, you're never turnin' back,
I just can't wait anymore

Miles away,
Nothin' left of what we had,
Just when I needed you the most, whoa-oh

Miles away,
No, you're never turnin' back,
I just can't wait anymore

Miles away,
Nothin' left of what we had,
Just when I needed you the most

You were miles away

    General CommentThis song has very personal meaning to me. To me it's about a dear friend of mine I have/had, yet she was never around when I needed her. Though nothing romantic ever really aspired, I nonetheless felt really close to her. One day she dropped out of school and moved in with her boyfriend who lived 'miles away.' That was almost 7 months ago and I still sometimes think of her. When I do, this song is really comforting.

    Also, the video seems to have been taylor made to this scenario in my life. If you want to check it out, goto launch.com

    NOTE: Just today I regained contact with the girl in this text. However I wrote this as if I still hadn't seen her becasue I feel I could express how the song touched me better this way.

    General CommentThis song shows that from the moment you need youre best friend you find out your best friend isn't there... He found that he had to give up his relationship to move on with his life. Somtimes the person you love can sit right beside you and yet be miles away...

    General CommentThis song is a power ballad at its finest. To me, this song seems to be about still missing a lost love even though the relationship is long over. Although she may not actually be miles away, it feels like she is.

    General CommentThis song never gets/got the credit it deserved. Great power ballad with powerful chorus. Kip's voice really shines in this song.

    General CommentI can relate to this song to some extent. I liked someone who never bothered being in touch. I couldn't get this person out of my head. They went silent for years, just when everything went wrong in my life, when everybody let me down and didn't want to know me.
    This person later said they liked me, but I struggled to trust after the nightmare I went through + finding out they've been having relationships.... when I was waiting for so many years for this person. There's a part of me that still loves this person and a part of me that has lost trust.
