  • Time on your side it'll never end
    The most beautiful thing you can ever spend
    But you work in a shirt with your name tag on it
    Drifting apart like a plate tectonic

    It don't matter to me
    All I wanted to be
    Was a million miles from here
    Somewhere more familiar

    Too much time spent dragging the past up
    I didn't see you not looking when I messed up
    Settling down in your early twenties
    Sucked more blood than a backstreet dentist

    It don't matter to me
    All I wanted to be
    Was a million miles from here
    Somewhere more familiar

    [Chorus]
    Oh my God I can't believe it
    I've never been this far away from home
    Oh my God I can't believe it
    I've never been this far away from home
    Oh my God I can't believe it
    I've never been this far away from home
    Oh my God I can't believe it
    I've never been this far away from home

    Bright ruins lit for a greater glory
    The only thing growing is our history
    Knock me down I'll get right back up again
    Come back stronger than a powered-up Pacman

    It don't matter to me
    All I wanted to be
    Was a million miles from here
    Somewhere more familiar
