Singalong! A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton

Even though this song came out when I was in grade ten, I associate it with university. It was the ringtone for one of my university besties' cell phone (this, by the way, was before everyone even had cell phones). Her phone had some fancy case that would light up in time with the ringtone and it was the coolest thing ever. We would listen to this song so hard. I would mostly imagine what it would be like to have someone who I loved enough to walk a thousand miles for.


A THOUSAND MILES
by Vanessa Carlton

Making my way down town
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making a way
Through the crowd

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder
If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you, tonight

It's always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder If you ever think of me

'Cause everything's so wrong
And I don't belong
Living in
Your precious memory

'Cause I need you
And I miss you and now I wonder
If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by, oh
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you tonight

And I, I don't want to let you know I,
I drown in your memory I,
I don't want to let this go
I, I don't.

Making my way down town walking fast
Faces pass
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Making my way
Making a way
Through the crowd

And I still need you
And I still miss you
And now I wonder
If I could fall into the sky
Do you think time, would pass us by
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you, now

If I could fall into the sky
Do you think time would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you
If I could just hold you, tonight.
