A Million Light Years From Love Lyrics (by Tom Smith)
Everything I ever wanted waited far 'cross time and space.
I'm a hero! I'm the champion of a wise and noble race.
An exotic alien beauty wants me to share her throne...
I've never felt so alone.
Even though they all ignored me, all the heroes were my crew.
I may not have met their standards, but I did what they all do --
I defended truth and justice, and I lent a helping hand...
They never seemed to understand
Out here I'm appreciated, I'm exalted and revered,
I'm idolized by everyone I see,
But I never put this costume on just wanting to be cheered --
I just wanted to be slightly more of me.
I'm across the freakin' galaxy, and my dreams have all come true,
But to get them I've been pulled away from everything I knew,
I'm a million light years from my love, and I don't know what to do,
How can I shut off my whole life? How can I give up you?
Everything I ever wanted isn't what I thought I wanted --
I want to hold my Angela, I want to see my friends,
But I'll try to make the best of it, and forget about the rest of it,
There's no use trying to pretend.
There's too many stars above between me and who I love...
I'm never going home again.
