"A Million Miles Away" as written by Evan A. Rogers and Carl Allen Sturken....
Here we lay face to face once again
Silence cuts like a knife as we pretend
And I'm wondering who will be the first to say what we both know
We're just holding on to "could have been"s and we should be letting go

It feels like you're a million miles away as you're lying here with me tonight
I can't even find the words to say I can find a way to make it right
And we both know that the story's ending
We play the part but we're just pretending and I can't hide the tears
'Cause even though you're here
It feels like you're a million miles away, away

Was it me, or was it you that broke away?
For what we were is like the season's love is change
And every time I think about it, it tears me up inside
Like the rivers of emotion but I got no more tears to cry

It feels like you're a million miles away as you're lying here with me tonight
And I can't even find the words to say I can find a way to make it right
And we both know that the story's ending
We play the part but we're just pretending and I can't hide the tears
'Cause even though you're here
Feels like you're a million miles away, away

We can try to talk it over but we walked that road before
While our song is playing its last note
We both know for sure that it's time to close that door

It feels like you're a million miles away as you're lying here with me tonight
And I can't even find the words to say I can find a way to make it right
We both know that the story's ending
We play the part but we're just pretending and I can't hide the tears
'Cause even though you're here
It feels like you're a million miles away
A million miles away

    General Commentomgsh, this is my favorite r&b song ever, i'm more into rock music so it's pretty weird for me to like a song like this sooooo much @_@, i think it's about having a relationship with someone, and it's coming to an end for whatever reason (fights, cheating, ect.) and you still love him but you have to let go. spending your last moments together, and just being broken up over it. ~bridgette♥

    General CommentThis song makes me think of my ex.

    "It feels like you're a million miles away..."

    When I sing it, I sing it to the person he was who he's not anymore and basically says that the person he was isn't here anymore.

    General CommentI've just listened to the song for the first time...and I loved it. Earlier today one of my friends gave me the lyrics, i just kept reading them all over again. My favorite line is:
    "...And every time I think about it, it tears me up inside
    Like the rivers of emotion but I got no more tears to cry..."
    It's just about that feeling when you realize it's over, but you can't do anything about it, and it's killing you...

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful and tragic. I know exactly what she's singing about.

    My InterpretationI think its about a slow painful seperation of a relationship. Yet the artist does'nt want to loose their love. They are not sure how it happened,a nd they want to make it right but doesn't know how...
