“Million Miles” single
“He said, ‘I’m watching you from the moon. I’m everywhere, see everything you do.’ I can’t see you but I know you’re here. It’s like you’re in my tears. I think what he’s given me, the smiles and the memories. But now he’s not here to hold my hand. In the light of the blue sky, I’m not alone to fight. I’ll never regret what I do. We’re a million miles apart is pulling my heart like an empty bubble to be thrown. I can’t make it stop but I know in my heart, I know that I’m never alone.” – lyrics
