Miles Away

It's an unforgiving wind out tonight;
Headlights dim and the miles are long.
My destination still nowhere in sight,
As I try to get back to where I belong.

Been up all night and my eyes are red;
I'm trying to fight the urge to sleep.
I think of home and a nice, warm bed;
A home far away, 'pon hills ever steep.

My hands grow numb from the cold air;
Clinging to my jacket I slowly breathe in.
With a gentle whisper I say a prayer,
That I might get to where I'm headin'.

I wish you'd be there at my journey's end,
With open arms and that gorgeous smile.
A confidant, a lover, a faithful friend;
To help me make it past that last mile.
