A Thousand Miles

I keep walking, quickening my pace
As the sun falls behind the skyline.
Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces past
And I’m homebound.
The contours of the citizens moving past me blur,
I can’t find a familiar face.
Staring blankly around
Just making my way
Making a way
Through the crowd.
You said you’d be here,
Here where even the air holds memories.
And I need you,
And I miss you,
And now I wonder…
It seems like it’s been forever since we’ve last seen each other,
And I can’t help but wonder how you’ve changed.
If I could fall
into the sky
do you think time
would pass me by.
I’ve been so far,
been through so much.
‘Cause you know I’d walk
A thousand miles
If I could just see you
Tonight.
I check my watch again,
Biting my lip as I dream of you.
It’s always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder
If you ever
Think of me.
Reminiscing as I keep trudging
Through the dank, grey slush.
‘Cause everything’s so wrong
and I don’t belong
living in your
precious memories
I’m getting closer
Closer to you-
And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder…
The sky is getting whiter
As the land grows darker.
If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by.
I pull my coat closer around me
Wishing it was your arms embracing me instead.
‘Cause you know I’d walk
a thousand miles
if I could
just see you
tonight.
My heart is beating
To the tune of the time
We spent together.
And I, I
Don’t want to let you know
I, I
Drown in your memory
I, I
Don’t want to let this go
I, I
Don’t…
I’m almost there-
Making my way downtown
walking fast
faces past
and I’m homebound.
Shoving against the stream-
Staring blankly around
just making my way
making a way
through the crowd.
The tears gather in my eyes-
And I still need you
And I still miss you
And now I wonder…
As I get ever closer to you-
If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass us by.
‘cause you know I’d walk
a thousand miles
if I could just see you…
And see your silouhette
If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
If I could
Just hold you
Tonight
As I rush into your arms
And everything’s alright again.

I like how you did this. It's a cool idea and the format played out really nicely.
