lyrics

When the busy day is done and I finally stop to breathe
Emptiness creeps in, surrounds me, waits to take its toll
I open up my soul but only darkness closes in
The rules, they don't seem to apply to anyone but me

A thousand miles between doubting and believing
So many ways to misread signals I'm receiving
My own worst enemy lives right inside my head
You lie here next to me, but it might as well be
A thousand miles

Dreams do linger on so I can look but cannot touch
Like some fiction fantasy I don't know what is real
Each word and picture drives the steel into my heart
Reminds me what I do not have and have no right to ask

A thousand miles between doubting and believing
So many ways to misread signals I'm receiving
My own worst enemy lives right inside my head
You lie here next to me, but it might as well be
A thousand miles

Thought I was strong but now I'm shaking in my shoes
None of this should make me flinch or falter like it does
Dancing with shadow demons who deign to see me fall
I'd sell my soul for resolution
No absolution
From the retribution
Of the dissolution
Of the ties that blind you
And the threads that bind you
So impossibly far away

A thousand miles between doubting and believing (might as well be ten)
So many ways to misread signals I'm receiving (same old fear again)
My own worst enemy lives right inside my head (and tells me lies)
A thousand miles between doubting and believing (might as well be ten)
So many ways to misread signals I'm receiving (same old fear again)
My own worst enemy lives right inside my head (and tells me lies)
You lie here next to me, but it might as well be
A thousand miles
