Wheels keep on rollin', mindless of our flight;
As towns lie in slumber, we fade into the night.
The cities, so familiar, are like a long-lost friend;
With open arms they shelter me, and bring me home to them.
And we're miles away, always miles away.
Rollin' on down the highway, livin' for the day;
Seems I'm always miles away.
Just outside of Memphis, where Rock 'n Roll began,
We say a prayer for Elvis, then on the road again.
The mind begins to wander, as memories unfold
The music on the radio reminds us of our homes.
Sometimes it seems the road will never end,
Sometimes it seems my only friend yeah, yeah, yeah.
What will tomorrow tell, I just can't say today,
Because I'm always miles away, miles away.
The boy I left at home took his first steps today
I'll watch him on the video before I leave to play.
'Cause we're miles away, always miles away.
Rollin' on down the highway, livin' for the day
Seems I'm always miles and miles away,
Always miles away.
Oh yeah, all of my life is rollin', livin' just to play,
Seems I'm always miles away, yeah,
Seems I'm always miles away,
Seems I'm always miles away, miles away.
