Lyrics

4000 Miles from Nowhere

Didn't you ever wonder why
I packed your bags and said goodbye
And never, ever said to you don't go

Swore to myself I wouldn't cry
Couldn't you tell it was a lie
Realized my fate too late to let you know

Bridge:

Hear me calling out your name
You know that nothing is the same
So tell me how long are we going to play this game

Chorus:

4000 miles from nowhere
Baby, hang up your phone
Forget my name, my number
Don't call, I won't be home

Remember how we once were
Forget you ever knew
That 4000 miles from this place
So long ago I fell in love with you

The days all seemed like years to me
I never knew the tears would be
Like bitter rain, the terrain of my soul

Wore down a little more each day
Until I knew there was no way
To stay a part while my heart took the toll

Didn't you ever wonder why
I packed your bags and said goodbye
And never, ever said to you don't go

Although I swore I'd never cry
I wish you could have seen inside
I sealed my fate and now you'll never know
