"Thousand Mile Wish" as written by Scott Anderson, Sean Anderson, Rich Beddoe, James Black and Rick Jackett....
Forgive me if now I wear the face of worry
This time alone could never cause any doubt
But I've been cold too long
Such a strange time to find myself coming down as the rain
With all the holes my love,
To fill up from the middle
This storm could stay all night

So can you stay until we close our eyes
'Til your dreams hold mine
Just stay until we know we tried one more time

'Cause laughing lovers can overcome their closest demons
And they'll go on and they won't let go
They saw something that they know
Has never come so close
Can it stay here for us, for now?

Can it stay until we know ourselves?
I'm torn as I tell
You're the story that I know and fell from
I'm so far into your story I don't know why
We think we're in control
When we lie between the lines

We'll find a line to follow
It's got to show real soon
Or we'll never each this high

We climb a little further
'Cause there's nothing we can't get around together
Further gets colder until nothing was all that I saw around

So we stay until the ground
That we can't come down from splits us away
Maybe stars know why we fall
I just wish they were thinking out loud
Oh, I could wish all night

    General CommentTo me, this song seems to be about trying to convince someone to fight for their relationship. Convincing someone that if you don't fight for anything, you'll be left with nothing.

    General CommentThis song is great, is about you and the person you love fighting for what you have, trying to make it better, loving each other in a good way and wondering what are you doing wrong and how you can fix it. I will thank my boyfriend forever for making me hear it, it has gave me strenght, courage and hope in our relationship.

    General CommentThis song is one of my favorite off of the new cd. 4 months after breaking up with my girlfriend of 3 years I heard this song and knew right away that it embodied everything that I felt. Especially "Just stay until we know we tried one more time". I told her that I wanted her to listen to this song and now we're giving it one more try.

    General CommentPerhaps it's also about long distance relationships.. Hence the "Thousand Mile Wish"?

    General Commenti think the title means its a long shot to get what he wants really bad. maybe she doesnt wanna stay anymore because theyve been fighting and he cant stand to let her go because he loves her with all his heart and he wants one more chance but he also knows that it probably wont happen how he wants it to.

    General CommentThis is probably one of the greatest songs ever written, Even before i knew what it meant It still held alot of signifigance for me. I pretty much agree with everyone here, this is one of those songs that was really well thought out and hard to figure out, but once you do your like "man, thats so easy i should'ave known that" that makes the song even better
