Lyrics

Million Miles

Written By: Col Finley

Verse:
Motel rooms, neon signs, a picture of you baby by my bedside at night
i dream of you, i feel you their, i count your breaths and feel your every tear
CHORUS
Million miles from your kisses, million miles from your smile and pray our love will come one day instead of been a million miles away
Verse:
your in my heart, i feel you their
i count the beats to feel your every tear
i know your strong, and you beleive
and more an more i know your missing me
Chorus
Bridge:
In our future well the sun is in our face and our hair our hair is long and grey
In our rocking chairs we sit in a daze not a care in the world
cuase were a million mile away
Chorus

Wrong side of the fastlane

Written By: C. Finley / M. Flanders

Verse:
Wind cry out and call my name,
I shut the door on all it pain
it echo thru the back street
it come and goes as it please
It careeses and it teases me
show me were i could have been or could of been
Pre Chorus:
So who decides the the wrong side of this road
That why i chose to go against the flow
Chorus:
Ive been tatterd and torn, Bruise an
scorned along lifes hwy
Takin one step forward and two steps back and that my way
Ive been cruisen and choosingand doing things the hard way
and it seems like ive been going down the wrong side of the fast lane
Verse:
Im stuck out on this open road theirs no traffic cuase no one goes were ive been to forfill my dreams
Footprints that i leave behind are legacy for those to find the truth ive seen i hope that they beleive
Pre Chorus:
Chorus:
