Strangers by the door
Camp-tired and sore
Come counting on kindness
For those who have strayed away

Every mile you roam
Ten thousand from home
And long
true colors of my home

[Repeat: x4]
Where I am paralyzed by the emptiness 
Every mile for ten thousand miles and every year for a thousand years
in my bird of silver steel
Time after time
Ten miles high
I'm living my fantasies
At twenty thousand feet
It's the rushing of my blood
That makes
So how come when I reach out my finger
It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
how come when I reach out my finger
It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
I'll be
So how come when I reach out my finger
It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
So how come when I reach out my finger
It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
So how come when I reach out my finger
It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
So how come when I reach out my finger
It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
So how come when I reach out my finger
It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
So how come when I reach out my finger
It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
Ten thousand miles I've traveled,
Ten thousand miles an' more,
Now I found myself standing, 
Outside of my babies door.

I've been gone such
in my bird of silver steel

[Chorus]
Forget the time 
Ten miles high
Living my fantasies
At twenty thousand feet
Twenty thousand feet, twenty
a flimsy blouse
But now we're gentrified
In our civil war house
Safe as a painting
By Currier and Ives
Baby our love song must survive

So I still
Neurotic smart bombs fault intolerant
Lulling in recursive parabolas
Black boxes shake hands scoping for shroud lines
With ten thousand mile
a thousand miles
Two-four-one to six-eight-nine
Come down from your tree
I'm ready to receive

And what tomorrow brings me I believe today
And this is
Slowdancing
A thousand miles away
Settling someone else's argument

[Repeat: x3]
Watch her every move
Seawinds call seawinds call

Ten thousands miles away
Where the moon took to the stars
I dreamed about the days
Days gone by

I've been told so many
how come when I reach out my finger
It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed
We're ten thousand miles apart
I'll be
For to see mad Tom of Bedlam
Ten thousand miles I'd travel
Mad Maudlin goes on dirty toes
For to save her shoes from gravel

[Chorus]
Still I
For to see mad Tom of Bedlam
Ten thousand miles I'd travel
Mad Maudlin goes on dirty toes
For to save her shoes from gravel

[Chorus]
Still I
woman so alone in the night
Oh, I had them all satisfied profusely
(Every night by myself)

Ten thousand trolls hard as rock cold as ice
Oh, they ran
the valley

In and around the lake
Mountains come out of the sky and they stand there
One mile over we'll be there and we'll see you
Ten true summers
with snow
So was the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston
The Berkshires seemed dream-like on account of that frosting
With ten miles behind me and ten
