There was a time
Looking through myself
Wanted to pretend
If I escaped
I could feel myself
I don't think you can
Been far and wide
But that hole inside
Never really leaves

I went away
But I really lost
Left behind was me

Install in me
Clear me on my way

Ohhhhhhhh
Ohh oh oh, ohh oh oh
A Million Miles Away
(Ohh oh oh, ohh oh oh)
A Million Miles Away

I can't stay
I can't stay
(Ohh oh oh, ohh oh oh)
A Million Miles Away

Each passing day
Every passing face
Seems like such a gloom
I long to be
Home silently
Lying next to her

Just to get back
By her side is all,
All I need to be

I went away
What I really lost
Left behind was me

I need to be
Getting on my way

Ohhhh oh oh oh
Ohh oh oh, ohh oh oh
Ohh oh oh, ohh oh oh
A Million Miles Away
(Oh oh oh, oh oh oh)
A Million Miles Away

I can't take
I can't take
(Oh oh oh, oh oh oh)
A Million Miles Away

INTERLUDE (guitar solo)
Install in me
Turn me on my way

I can't take, I can't take
A Million Miles Away

I can't take, I can't take
A Million Miles Away

I can't take, I can't take
A Million Miles Away

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
I can't take
I can't take
A Million Miles Away

    My InterpretationI cannot believe these lyrics have not been transcribed. It is one of The Offspring's most overtly deep songs.

    Everyone in their late teens to early twenties thinks that there is a big world out there and in order to define who they are to themselves they have to go and sample it. What Dex realises when he is out there is that the woman he left behind is all he needs to feel himself so makes it his only quest to get back to what he left behind, ie himself personified in her.
