Lyrics

"I Can See For Miles"

I know you've deceived me, now here's a surprise
I know that you have 'cause there's magic in my eyes

I can see for miles and miles and miles…miles…miles

If you think that I don't know about the little tricks you've played
Oh I can see right through you
And never see you when deliberately you put things in my way

Well, here's a poke at you
You're gonna choke on it too
You're gonna lose that smile
Beacuse all the while

I can see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles and miles… miles and miles

(Close breathy) Ooh – ahhh x2
You took advantage of my trust in you when I was so far away
I saw you holding lots of other girls
And now you've got the nerve to say

That you still want me
Well, that's as may be
But you gotta stand trial
Because all the while

I can see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles and miles… miles… miles


Guitar solo
Miles x7

Ohhhh
I know you've deceived me, now here's a surprise
Haaaa-ohhhhh
I know that you have 'cause there's magic in my eyes

I can see for miles and miles and miles… miles… miles


The Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal are mine to see on clear days
You thought that I would need a crystal ball
To see right through the haze

Well, here's a poke at you
You're gonna choke on it too
You're gonna lose that smile
Because all the while

I can see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles and miles and (breath)
Miles and miles and (breath)
Miles and miles and miles

I can see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles


I can see for miles and miles and miles (breath)
Miles and miles and miles
(Fade out)
Miles and miles and miles
Miles and miles and miles
Miles and miles and miles
