Gary Morris - Miles Across the Bedroom

(Lester S. Moore - Jeffrey Rea)

Well, I got myself in trouble
I've been there before
Doin' something that I swore
I wouldn't do any more.

I stayed out last night drinkin'
And I crawled home half past five
Through the window I could see her
She was cryin', cry, cry, cryin'.

With my lightning quick reaction
I slipped around the house
And I sneaked into the back door
Just a quiet as a mouse.

First my right foot then my left one
Another step and I'm home free
When an angel's voice I knew so well
Said these words to me.

Chorus:
Gonna be miles across the bedroom tonight
No undercover honky tonkin'
When we turn out the lights
The only thing to hope for
Is some time to get things right
Gonna be miles across the bedroom tonight.

Well, I thought that it was morning
By the pounding in my head
So I reached across the pillow
But I found an empty bed.

Her track led to the kitchen
I could the smell the coffee brew
On the table lay a simple note
It said boy I'm leavin' you.

Chorus:
Gonna be miles across the bedroom tonight
No undercover honky tonkin'
When we turn out the lights
The only thing to hope for
Is some time to get things right
Gonna be miles across the bedroom tonight.

In a week I found my senses
In a heartbeat found the phone
So I placed a call to her mother
'Cause I knew that's where she'd gone.

I told her I was sinkin'
And I would surely drown
If she'd only come back to me
I would never let her, never let her
Never let her down.

For a moment there was silence
And she said I love you too
And my mama drives me crazy
I'll be comin' home to you.

No more miles across the bedroom tonight
Gonna be undercover honky tonkin'
When we turn out the lights
The best that we can hope for
Is the time to do things right.

No more miles across the bedroom
Gonna be smiles across the bedroom tonight...
