lyrics

"6000 Miles"
written & performed by mark mitten
(C) 2016

And you wonder why, in this pale blue sky
there's 6000 miles of fence between me & you
and you wonder why, would I gamble the truth
when there's nothing to lose--why even have to choose?

And there's 6000 miles of fence between me & you (x2)

Give me two whiskey sours, I can pass the hours
there's a dead shine tonight
the ancients smile through their aspen eyes
for miles & miles I call from these adobe walls
and my sleeves catch fire from the muzzle blast
and my empty glass

CHORUS

Midnight light, desert & dune
a bottle of shooting stars
midnight light, desert & dune
a bottle of shooting stars
