Million Miles From Home

An ode to travelling the world… and coming home

Lyrics & Music © Dave Warner

MILLION MILES FROM HOME

eiffelI drained another pastis
Searched in vain for an accomplice
Pen poised above the postcard
I didn’t think writing back would be this hard

But how can you tell the truth
They only wanna hear what they want to hear
They wanna hear about success
From Amsterdam to Munich, from Brussels onto Zurich
They’ll be sitting round the TV watching the action replay

But oh, you lucky pricks, I wish I was there
‘Cause I’m all alone, and that’s not much fun
When you’re a million miles from home

I’ve seen the Eiffel Tower, and I would’ve traded that for a proper shower
I’ve lived for months on bread and cheese, and I’m sick of that and museums and art galleries

seineJust give me my best friends, a beer, a barbecue and a steak that bends
But I’ll go back and I’ll tell you all about the fine wines and the great times
And the laughter and the girls

You’ll be crowded round my letter
Envious of this trendsetter
But oh, you lucky pricks, I wish I was there
‘Cause I’m all alone, and that’s not much fun
When you’re a million miles from home

I drained another pastis, searched the rain for an accomplice
Turned insane by the River Rhine, blinded by the sun on the River Seine

backpackBut how can you tell the truth
They only wanna hear what they want to hear
They wanna hear about success
From Amsterdam to Munich,
from Brussels onto Zurich

They’ll be sitting round the TV
Watching the action replay
But oh, you lucky pricks I wish I was there
‘Cause I’m all alone and that’s not much fun
When you’re a million miles from home
