This hotel bar is full of people
The piano man is really laying it down
Even the old bartender is as high as a steeple
So why tonight should I wear a frown?

The joint is jumping all around me
And my mood is really not in style
Right now the blues flock to surround me
But I’ll break out after a while

Well, I’m a million miles away
I’m a million miles away
Sailing like a driftwood
On a windy bay

Yes, I’m a million miles away
I’m a million miles away
Sailing like a driftwood
On a windy bay

Why ask how I feel?
Well, how does it look to you?
I fell hook, line and sinker
Lost my captain and my crew

I’m standing on the landing
And there’s no one there but me
That’s where you’ll see me
Looking out on the deep blue sea

There’s a song on the lips of everybody
There’s a smile all ’round the room
There’s conversation overflowing
So why must I sit here in the gloom

This hotel bar has lost all its people
The piano man has caught the last bus home
The old bartender sleeps in the corner
So why must I still be here?, I don’t know, let me tell you

I’m a million miles away
I’m a million miles away
Sailing like a driftwood on a windy bay

I’m a million miles away
I’m a million miles away
Sailing like a driftwood on a windy bay

Yes, I’m a million miles away
I’m a million miles away
Sailing like a driftwood on a windy bay

Well, I’m a million miles
I’m a million miles, I’m a million miles
Sailing like a driftwood on a windy bay, oh, oh yeah

    I suppose we all feel that drift sometimes
