Winger - Miles Away


About the song


Winger's power ballad "Miles Away" is from their album In the Heart of the Young and is a power ballad. The song was released to pop radio in late 1990 after already reaching number one in most AOR markets, and it reached #12 on the Hot 100. It's also notable because it was Winger's sole UK hit single, peaking at #56 on January 24, 1991. Paul Taylor revealed that he wrote "Miles Away" for his fiancée Emi Canyn, a member of the Nasty Habits, Mötley Crüe's backup vocalists. Another Colorado artist, Randy Vanwarmer, wrote "Just When I Needed You Most," which is mentioned in the song. "All I Ever Wanted," the single's B-side, was never released on any other Winger albums or compilations, though it did appear in demo form on the Demo Anthology.


Miles Away - Lyrics


So this is love Or so you tell me As you're walkin Out the door The months go by And I know for certain It's not the love I'm looking for But sometimes Just for a moment I reach out Hope you're still there Miles away No you're never turning back And I just can't wait anymore Miles away Nothing left of what we had Just when I needed you most You were miles away It's hard to tell What you're going through You kept your feelings locked inside of you Open your heart and chances are What you're feeling I'm feeling too If only just for a moment Hold on to the dreams that we had Miles away No you're never turning back And I just can't wait anymore Miles away Nothing left of what we had Just when I needed you most You were miles away When times were tough And you were down and out Who was there by your side But now you're gone And I'm so tired of being alone With only your promises The loneliness just fades away Thoughts of you just memories No cryin out for what you're missing Time won't forget What you meant to me If only just for a moment Hold on to the dreams that we had...
