I'm sending this letter to you, in hopes that it finds you well. I wanted to say I love you, and I miss you. I pray that you sleep well tonight, I hope you dream of me. I’ll write again tomorrow, I’ll be home soon. I'm a million miles away from you. I can't get you off my mind, not that I’m trying but, all I want is to hold you again, sleep well tonight. All these miles that stand between us get shorter everyday, I'm calling to say I love you, and I miss you. I can see the city skyline; I'm not that far away. I pull into the driveway and I see you.

    General Commentdude no! when i first heard this song that's what i thought, too... but this is what i now think it means ..

    "I'm sending this letter to you, in hopes that it finds you well." .........i think that letter might mean the Bible or something.. or whatever way God reveals himself to someone.

    "I'm a million miles away from you. I can't get you off my mind, not that I’m trying" .... God feels very far from us at times .. and for people who aren't Christains it's very much a million miles.. God is always thinking of us and he cares about us..

    "all I want is to hold you again" ..God wants to be close to us with that loving relationship, and wants us to be back with him, even if we have back-slidden..

    ...............unless it really is just a song to a girlfriend ..and i just got that interp out of it .. but i always try to find a deeper meaning to a song ... and it would be cool if i found out from the band themselves ... but bands are so hard to contact

    General Commentheh.. yeah, so I met Spoken .. and yes.. you are right.. Matt did write this song to his wife.. but the band says that it is open to interpretation and it is awesome how it works as a God to person song, too.
