[verse]
It's been awhile and a million miles
Since i've seen the sun shine on your face
A long time coming but now i'm runnin' back home
southern pines and neon signs and every backroad between the two
out of sight dont mean out of mind to me

[Chorus]
Carry on this way
I'm singin' to you from somewhere tonight am I getting through?
(is it getting through)
I choke on every word and it never comes out right
This would be so much easier standing next to you
[verse]
I didn't know what I was lookin' for
but I found it when I took your hand
The cheshire smile still cuts me down to the bone
Preacher says its for rich or poor
We see a lot of the latter of two
I've been gone so long i'm afraid I might be losin' you

[Chorus]

Woah x 30odd

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis is a song with multiple interpretations, that's why I love this song. You can relate to it in a number of ways, be it family, relationships or religion.

    L'heart.

    My InterpretationConsidering the more gentle nature of the song I would suggest this about a loved one (partner). Their relationship has faded over time ... there is an emotional distance between them (perhaps physical barrier too).

    Has the narrator realised too late what they had?? Have they lost them??
