    Song Lyrics

    Hey guys,

    been ages since I posted something here, but today I felt inspired to re-write the song lyrics to Vanessa Carlton's A Thousand Miles. I just need to express how I'm feeling and music/writing is the only way I know how. Hope you like it I guess lol.


    Riding the bus through town
    Driving fast
    Cars pass
    And I'm homebound

    Staring out of the window just making my way
    Making a way through life's ups and downs

    And I need something new
    I don't know what to do
    And now I wonder
    If I met you again on the street
    And let you talk to me
    Would my life start to become sweet
    Would we shine as bright as the stars in the sky?
    Cause I know I would walk a thousand miles if I could just see you tonight

    It's always times like these when I feel most alone
    Staring at the blank screen on my phone

    Cause I know this isn't who I want to be
    A girl of the past
    Only alive in your memory

    And I need something new
    I don't know what to do
    And now I wonder
    If I met you again on the street
    And let you talk to me
    Would my life start to become sweet
    Would we shine as bright as the stars in the sky?
    Cause I know I would walk a thousand miles if I could just see you tonight

    And I, I want a new life I
    I don't want to be a nobody I
    I want to be a somebody
    I do

    Riding the bus through town
    Driving fast
    Cars pass
    And I'm homebound

    Staring out of the window just making my way
    Making a way through life's ups and downs

    And I stillneed something new
    I stilldon't know what to do
    And now I wonder
    If I met you again on the street
    And let you talk to me
    Would my life start to become sweet
    Would we shine as bright as the stars in the sky?
    Cause I know I would walk a thousand miles if I could be there with you, right here, right now

    And I need something new
    I don't know what to do
    And now I wonder
    If I met you again on the street
    And let you talk to me
    Would my life start to become sweet
    Would we shine as bright as the stars in the sky?
    Cause I know I would walk a thousand miles if I could just see you tonight

    When I sing it in my head, some of the words in your lyrics don't fit exactly with the tune if that makes sense? But other than that your lyrics brought a tear to my eye -very beautiful, and relateable !

    Do you write like this in your spare time at all? For a job ? You're very talented

    I like your glasses btw -very retro!

    Yes that does make sense because it doesn't fit exactly the tune in my head either, but thank you so much for the sweet comment! Yes I love to write in my spare time. And thank you, I don't actually wear glasses, it's a snapchat filter, but I felt like the glasses made me look more intelligent ha!
