Lyrics Print lyrics

I just woke up from a fuzzy dream

You never would believe the things that I have seen

I looked in the mirror and I saw your face

You looked right through me, you were miles away

 

All my dreams, they fade away

I'll never be the same

If you could see me the way you see yourself

I can't pretend to be someone else

 

You always love me more, miles away

I hear it in your voice, when you're miles away

You're not afraid to tell me, miles away

I guess we're at our best, when we're miles away

So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away

So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away

 

When no one's around and I have you here

I begin to see the picture, it becomes so clear

You always have the biggest heart

When we're 6,000 miles apart

 

Too much of no sound

Uncomfortable silence can be so loud

Those three words are never enough

When it's long distance love

 

You always love me more, miles away

I hear it in your voice, when you're miles away

You're not afraid to tell me, miles away

I guess we're at our best, when we're miles away

So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away

So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away

 

I'm alright

Don't be sorry, but it's true

When I'm gone, you realize

That I'm the best thing that happened to you

 

You always love me more, miles away

I hear it in your voice, when you're miles away

You're not afraid to tell me, miles away

I guess we're at our best, when we're miles away

 

You always love me more, miles away

I hear it in your voice, when you're miles away

You're not afraid to tell me, miles away

I guess we're at our best, when we're miles away

So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away

So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away

 

So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away

So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away

So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away

Single

Miles Away, the singleThis track was used as the theme song for the Japanese TV show Change in the spring of 2008. It was released as the third and final single on November 24th, 2008 in the UK and December 15th in the US. Remixes of the song were created by Thin White Duke, Morgan Page, Johnny Vicious, Demacio "Demo" Castellon, and Aaron LaCrate & Debonair Samir. Because of the drastic change of UK chart climate, Miles Away unfortunately became Madonna's first ever single to miss the Top 20 when it peaked at #39, ending her string of 66 UK Top 20 hits, which will most likely remain unmatched. The song was not sent to US radio stations so it did not enter the Billboard Hot 100. In Japan, Miles Away became a huge hit with selling more than 800,000 digital downloads and earning 3 Japan Gold Disc Awards.

Video

Initial reports suggested that Miles Away would get a tour montage video. Unfortunately in the end these plans got cancelled and there was no video to promote this single.

Tour

Miles Away @ Sticky & Sweet Tour"This is for all who know the struggle of long distance relationships. I know you're out there." This introduction of Miles Away during her Sticky & Sweet show in London describes this song best. While her dancers gather and sit down in a circle around her, Madonna plays the acoustic guitar and encourages the crowd to clap and sing along. The screens give another message to the song, showing a stream of world maps and passport stamps and the journey of gypsies travelling around the world, conveniently adding to the atmosphere of the Gypsy section of the show.
