I see how faces are flooding the halls of your house,
would you mind if we snuck to the front porch
and there with our small view, a toast to all things new.

i'd stay a little while, it's just the more you show
i can't stand to leave, though i say i should go.

Unsettled bride to be smearing makeup on your lease,
while hoping for a change of mind that should have happened long ago.
you say i talk too much, but come on honestly,
oh, honestly, why do you sigh and sway?

It's coming too fast,
no, you've had nine years.
mistakes get tied in knots to soothe our burning ears.

Unsettled bride to be smearing makeup on that lease,
while hoping for a change of mind
that should have happened long ago.
you say i talk too much, but come on honestly,
oh honestly, why do you sigh and sway?

I'm not just asking, cause this wouldn't seem right to beg,
i'll never tell you that this seems like a miracle mile.
All things considered aside, do i act a little different?
i hope it's different now.

We will find our place past the would-have-beens,
no more hanging from on our string.

    General CommentHe and a girl have known each other for nine years, probably dated at some point, but she ends up marrying someone else. He finds her at her housewarming party when husband and wife move in together and their history comes up. They try to put it behind them, and the song ends on a very positive note, with Dean confident that they can still be friends.

    This is a much healthier way to deal with this situation than is featured "Company Calls (Epilogue)."

    The song title is a reference to the 1988 movie "Miracle Mile." In the movie two people, Harry and Julie, meet in Los Angeles and are immediately attracted to one another, but end up unable to connect. Initially, serendipity keeps them apart, but they don't get a second chance because LA is destroyed by nuclear missles. Also, LA is home to the Miracle Mile shopping and cultural district along Wilshire Blvd, from which the movie took its name.

    So he's saying that he feels like they've been kept apart by a catastrophe, namely her relationship with her husband. But he's resigned himself to that and doesn't want to lose her as a friend.
