"Million Miles of Water" as written by and Chad Smith Michael Balzary....
Broke down
I found
even when you think you need a rest
you will live about/without another round
I know its
too bad
so sad
all the things that we could have been and could have had

[Chorus]
Hey Girl
What sound/ what's up
a million miles of water that are flowing deep beneath this ground
now
i found you
right here
a million miles of water

you were
my muse
just because you happen to have a bomb doesn't mean you light the fuse
i know that
my girl
big lie
four years in and you never even said goodbye

chorus

[2nd Chorus]
Hey girl
what sound/what's up
i want you to remember that some times we have to go without
now
i found it
right here
i want you to remember dear.

we were
two of
a funny kind
so damn blind but now we got to nevermind
i know that
this is
the end
we tried
so hard, but now i got to lose a friend

    General Commentthis song is definitely an ode to yohanna logan [read scar tissue]. he says that in his book that if he put as much into any other relationship that he'd be married with five kids. the majority of by the way is about her. i think when he says "a million miles of water that are flowing deep beneath this ground" that the water is his love and deep down, even though their relationship is over, he will still always love her.
