"A Million Miles"

[ from the album "George Best" (1987) ]

Lyrics

I must have walked past this doorway thirty times
Just trying to catch your eye
You made it all worthwhile
When you returned my smile
It all became worthwhile

Don't you feel a little cold stood by the door?
You know I'd really like to talk some more
Oh don't be worried about your friend
I think she left some time around ten
What was her name again?

You're not like anyone I've ever met
You're not like anyone I've ever met

Do you see much of Charlie over here?
Oh I've known him off and on for years
He's never mentioned you before
Oh that didn't come out right at all
And now I feel this small

That seems to be it, don't get me wrong
But how are you going to get back home?
Oh I'd be willing to walk that way
There's something I've just got to say
I'd walk a million miles today

You're not like anyone I've ever met
You're not like anyone I've ever met

I kept bursting out with laughter all the way home
I had to tell somebody and you happened to phone
I can't think of anything else no matter how I try
But you know I can't even remember the colour of her eyes
And that's why

You're not like anyone I've ever met
You're not like anyone I've ever met
Well at least not yet
