A Hundred Million Miles

lyrics

So long now we've walked this road
We were not wise, we weren't to know
That no one else would sell their soul
There's a hundred million miles to go
There's a hundred million miles to go

Marching forth on that white line
The broken strokes that mark the time
And I could not put down my load
There's a hundred million miles to go
There's a hundred million miles to go

An ancient man by that roadside
He shakes his fist at burning skies
He sang with eyes as black as coal
"There's a hundred million miles to go
There's a hundred million miles to go"

There's a hundred million miles
And miles
And miles
And miles, oh I

He spoke to me that awful truth
Said "Mark this well, for I am you
I passed my love upon this road
Was a hundred million miles ago
Was a hundred million miles ago

On and on no backward glance
Around the bend another chance
We circumnavigate the globe
There's a hundred million miles to go
There's a hundred million miles to go

There's a hundred million miles
And miles
And miles
And miles, oh I
