My heart is breaking every day,
I know for certain this is true,
Because you're a million miles away.

You had to go; I wanted you to stay.
Although our days together were few,
My heart is breaking every day.

You always helped me see the way,
But now I've lost my perfect view
Because you're a million miles away.

I stare out across the shimmering bay,
Nostalgic of my love for you.
My heart is breaking every day.

As I feel my body warmed by the Sun's rays,
I despise what I know I must do
Because you're a million miles away.

Farewell, my love, I have to say,
What once was one now is two.
My heart is breaking every day
Because you're a million miles away.
