Missed By A Mile

MISSED BY A MILE - Written by Carroll Bryant



We didn’t miss by much
All those times we talked about forever

We couldn’t feel that touch
All those nights we seemed to spend together

I know it’s crazy now to
Always think about you
I try everything I can not to

I know it’s hard to fathom
Hard love and ectoplasm
I ran and still somehow
It’s meaningless to me

We didn’t miss by far
All those days we laughed and played

We couldn’t find our star
All those times we left and stayed away

I know it’s crazy now to
Reflect and think about you
I try everything I can not to

I know it’s hard to cherish
Soft love will always perish
I ran and still somehow
It’s meaningful to me

We didn’t miss by much

Only by a heartbeat
Only by a smile
Only by the skin of our teeth
Only by a mile

Only by a moment passing
Only by an everlasting
Only by a story
Only by a screech

I know it’s hard to ponder
Fake love and endless wonder
I ran and still somehow
It’s meaningless to me

We didn’t miss by much

Only by a hairline fracture
Only by a while
Only by the coming rapture
Only by a mile

Only by a New York minute
Only by a glare
Only by a mystery
Only by a stare

We didn’t miss by much
All those times we talked about forever

We couldn’t feel that touch
All those nights we seemed to spend together

I know it’s crazy now to
Always think about you
I try everything I can not to
I try everything I can to forget you

We didn’t miss by much
