  • You're miles away

    I'm not messing about, I've got a mile of self doubt
    Yeah, you're not even close yet,
    Because you're miles away
    Another day in bed, sorting out your head
    You don't know what you're thinking about

    You're not right all of the time
    Its funny when you're wrong

    You're miles away, no one can stop me
    So far, it's funny when you're falling over

    You're the robot voice, and the people's choice
    Yeah, you blink and it goes wrong
    Because you're miles away
    You're not even warm, human after all
    You don't know what you're talking about

    You're not right all of the time
    Its funny when you're wrong

    You're miles away, no one can stop me
    So far, it's funny when you're falling over, oh!

    I'm too skint to pay my debtors
    Uh-oh un-opened letters
    Feels like a siege I'm under
    How did you get my number?
    Oh oh, it's for the better
    Than on the never ever
    I'll get back and back and back
    And back and back and back, around we go

    You're miles away, no one can stop me
    So far, it's funny when you're falling over

    Miles away, no one can stop me
    So far, it's funny when you're falling over

    You're not right all of the time
    It's funny when you're wrong

    You're not right all of the time
    It's funny when you're wrong Writer/s: BILLY JOEL
