I took a trip up the West Coast
LAX to SFO
Was searching for a temp so low
And a summer high
The sun swayed and set slow
I made waves with some friends I know
Got lost in the ebb and flow
Of the drifting tide

And I, I didn't ever want to come down
From that West Coast rush and summer high
And easy, peaceful sense of time
I felt so alive
Now, I'm alone when I'm back home
It's cold and old but in my mind
I, I am miles and miles away
I'm miles away

Pretty, pretty girls on two wheels
Dolores Heights and a laid back feel
We sat and drank for a while
Until the city came alive
(We were) And we were smoking with strangers
We were dancing with the lights on
I was singing to "The Angels"
See, that's my favorite X song

And I, I didn't ever want to come down
From that West Coast rush and summer high
And easy, peaceful sense of time
I felt so alive
Now, I'm alone when I'm back home
It's cold and old but in my mind
I, I am miles and miles away

Miles away
In my mind I'm miles and miles away
In my mind I'm miles away

Oh, when the buzz ain't like it was
Then it's time for a change
Just a subtle change
A tongue full of only tomorrows
Will never quench your thirst for today
So, what do you say
We take a trip miles away?
(Just take a trip, just take a trip)
We take a trip miles away
(Just take a trip, just a little trip)
[Just take a trip miles away]

see, I don't ever want to come down
From this West Coast rush and summer high
And easy, peaceful sense of time
I feel so alive
At the moment, any place I go
Is beautiful cause in my mind
I, I am miles and miles away
(Miles away) [Just take a trip]
In my mind I'm miles and miles away [Just a little trip]
In my mind
Cause in my mind
I, I am miles and miles
