A MILE AWAY

A mile away the world has changed forever
I’ve gone and left it all behind
No supermarket trolley sleeping in the river bed
No early morning cigarette rushing to your head
‘cause shadows fell across my path and I was bound to see
Those white faces shining through the treetops twinkling on your face
I won’t forget the place I’ll never ever be again

A mile away. A world away

The aerials above the water tower can’t be seen
When you’re sitting in the sand watching bonfires burning out
‘cause shadows fell across my path I quickly learned to see
That all the ugliness in all our lives is tarnishing our souls
I won’t forget the place I’ll never ever be again

A mile away. A world away
