John Swanson
10000 Miles Away
Lyrics
Your lips are moving but I don't hear a word
They're flapping and flapping like the wings of a bird
Your nostrils are flaring; you're ready to fight
Looks like a Pier Sixer tonight

But I've had a hard day; work was really a bear
You may think I'm listening but I really don't care
I'm projecting myself far from here
And I'm getting myself a beer

You might as well be 10,000 miles away
You might as well be 10,000 miles away
I'm at the top of the mountain
You're at the bottom of the sea
And you ain't even bothering me

I've heard you complain enough to already know
Every boring old line in this one woman show
I've listened to you snarl, scold, and hiss
So you might want to listen to this

You might as well be 10,000 miles away
You might as well be 10,000 miles away
I'm locking all the doors
And throwing out the key
So you ain't even bothering me

You might as well be 10,000 miles away
You might as well be 10,000 miles away
I'm at the top of the mountain
You're at the bottom of the sea
