Million Mile Sky

Far away in the middle of the day
On a highway someone's driving really slow
There's a stone changing colors all alone
Looks exactly like it did lifetimes ago

Not a sound for a hundred miles round
But the wind and the abandoned radio
Exit here, there's a chance that something's near
Yeah, they're driving but they've got no place to go

Here the sky is a million miles wide
We no longer try
Here the sky is a million times your size
Yesterday it cried

There's a lot of open windows
And a dark cloud in the sky
And there's something in the water
If we hurry we'll stay dry

Late at night, there's a dark and scary sight
It's the moonlight overshadowed by the side of the rock
It's a face in an interesting place
And it's looking at us now as if to say, "Go away"

Here the sky is a million miles wide
We no longer try
Here the sky is a million times your size
Yesterday it cried

There's a lot of open windows
And a dark cloud in the sky
And there's something in the water
If we hurry we'll stay dry

Here between indecision and a dream
There's a lot of time to think about the world
There's your car, there's a bright and distant star
There's a building and a present from a girl

It's a chance, complicated like a dance
But you'll miss it if you see it every day
Some have tried, some have even almost died
Only one has ever made it all the way

Here the sky is a million miles wide
We no longer try
Here the sky is a million times your size
Yesterday it cried

There's a lot of open windows
And a dark cloud in the sky
And there's something in the water
If we hurry we'll stay dry
