"1000 Miles Away" as written by and Jewel Kilcher....
It's morning time, wonder where you are
Wonder who you're talking to
Wonder if the sun has risen where you are
It's morning time, I miss your hands on my skin
This bed's too big without you
Oh god, what do I do?
I'm a thousand miles away, and I'm lying next to you.

The sun shines golden, and I feel like my car
A little run down, a little beat up, maybe just a little green
Maybe it's my battery, maybe it's my starter,
Maybe my heart's too weak
There's just this feeling, thought I had to get going
Got too scary, got too big, got to get out of here
But now I don't know how to get home.
Oh god, what do I do?
I'm a thousand miles away, and lying next to you.

Mama says take my vitamins,
Daddy says girl, don't stay out so late
Sister says there's other fishes in the sea
But love is not a rational thing, and my heart is beyond advice
No, love is not a rational thing
Oh god, what do I do?
I'm a thousand miles away, and lying next to you.

These fields stretch out like patchwork, on my granny's quilt
She used to tell me that
Life is a series of strange and mysterious things
One minute you think you're up, the next you find you're down
Your mind says girl, you gotta stick around
But your heart says I'm too weak in the knees
Oh god, what do I do?
I'm a thousand miles away, and lying next to you.

    General CommentI have found many songs on this new album that reflect previous songs of hers. Certain lyrics too. But I LOVE the way she sings out "GOD!" It gives me chills.

    General CommentThis song is incredibly beautiful; an amazing closer to her newest album. Wow...just heartbreakingly wonderful.

    The way she sings that last "oh god" brings me to tears...

    General Commentwhat do you think she means when she says she's 1,000 miles away but she's lying next to him? for some reason that phrase just confuses me. is she saying that he's so far away but it feels like he's right there because of all the emotions he's left with her? what do you think?
