1,000 Miles Away

This song is by Hoodoo Gurus and appears on the compilation album Bite The Bullet: Director's Cut (1998).

Estimated time of arrival 9.30 a.m.
Been up before the sun and now I'm tired before I even begin.
(Now you're flying) I got so much work in front of me,
(Really flying) it stretches out far as the eye can see.
I can see.

Spend half my life in airports doing crosswords and attempting to sleep,
And when the bar is open then you'll often find me warming a seat.
(Now you're flying) I never find a place where I can stay
(Really flying) I'd rather be a thousand miles away.
Thousand miles away.

Working for yourself sometimes ain't all that it's cracked up to be.
It can be as lonely at the top as at the bottom of that corporate tree
(Now you're flying) I'm told I'm going places - who can say?
(Really flying) I might arrive but I'll be gone the very next day.
I must be on my way
A thousand miles away.

Promised to myself someday I'd take the time and try to make sense
Out of all those opportunities I've lost from trying to sit on the fence
(Now you're flying) but right now I've got no time for yesterday
(Really flying) yesterday is a thousand miles away.
A thousand miles away.

(Now you're flying) what was that that you were trying to say?
I guess I was a thousand miles away, away
Sing it again (a thousand miles away). 3x
Sing it again.
