“A Thousand Miles”
Words and Music by Ryan Newcomb

Well, it’s nice to be back here in sunny Sarasota,
Mexico was such a welcome change,
Life is such a funny little thing sometimes,
‘Cause you never know what you’ll find along the way,
Something’s blowin’ in off the ocean,
And it looks like it’s gonna rain,
But a little rain ain’t gonna hurt my heart,
‘Cause I’m back where I belong again,

I’m a thousand miles from Danville,
Across half a dozen states, I guess I had to get away,
A thousand miles from the mountains,
Everywhere I looked I saw your face; I just needed a change,
I had everything to win and nothing to lose,
I’m a thousand miles from Danville,
And a thousand miles from you,

I never thought about the distance,
It never mattered much to me,
‘Cause I lose a little piece of the past,
With every tropical breeze,
Something’s blowin’ in off the ocean,
And it feels like it’s gonna rain,
But a little rain seems to soothe my soul,
‘Cause it washes away the pain,

And I’m a thousand miles from Danville,
Across half a dozen states, I guess I had to get away,
A thousand miles from the mountains,
Everywhere I looked I saw your face; I just needed a change,
I had everything to win and nothing to lose,
I’m a thousand miles from Danville,
I’m a thousand miles from you,

I knew it had to end,
I knew that I couldn’t stay,
But everything I left came back again,
The moment I saw your face,

Now, I wish I was a thousand miles from Danville,
Across half a dozen states, I wish I could just get away,
A thousand miles from my mountains,
Everywhere I look I see your face; I could use another change,
I’ve got everything to win and nothing left to lose,
A thousand miles from Danville,
A thousand miles from my mountains,
I wish I was a thousand miles from Danville,
And a thousand miles from you.
