I'd walk a thousand miles for you, honey,
I'd walk a thousand miles in the sun;
I'd give up both my eyes
if I could make you realize,
Why can't you see that I'm the one?

Wish I could buy a limousine,
I'd fill it up and I'd pick you up
and I'd drive you to your dreams;
But when you get out on the highway
life is seldom as it seems,
And when the car breaks down
you start blaming me.

Moonshine bleeds into the dawn,
Who am I to say for you
what's right or what is wrong?
When you're gone (gone gone)
the world will carry on;
You're like a song (song song)
who's melody is wrong,
But it's so (so hard) to say
(so long) to you,
my long lost love.

Many a man has sold his soul for silver,
Silver ain't worth nothin' next to gold;
Some believe that diamonds shine forever,
But they offer little comfort when you're old.

And you can't take it with you when you're gone,
Its the same end for the weak as for the strong;
And if beauty is skin deep,
Then why don't it come more cheap?
Why can't you and I just get along?

Moonshine bleeds into the dawn,
Who am I to say for you
what's right or what is wrong?
When you're gone (gone gone)
the world will carry on;
You're like a song (song song)
who's melody is wrong,
But it's so (so hard) to say
(so long) to you,
my long lost love.

Moonshine bleeds into the dawn,
Who am I to say for you
what's right or what is wrong?
When you're gone (gone gone)
the world will carry on;
You're like a song (song song)
who's melody is wrong,
But it's so (so hard) to say
(so long) to you,
my long lost love.

Gone, gone, the world will carry on,
Gone, gone, the world will carry on;
Gone, gone, the world will carry on,
Gone, gone, the world will carry on.
