New Orleans could not find the groove
In Nashville the grass did not seem blue
And Denver did not seem more than three feet high
The Empire did not scrape the sky
And the White House seemed gray
When you're 3000 miles away

In Boston there was no common ground
And Long Island did not make a sound
Niagara rises and Old Faithful falls
At Camden they did not play ball
But who cares if they play
When you're 3000 miles away

[Chorus]
Your absence changes me and everything seems so wrong
But with no sense of irony
I write you this sweet love song today
3000 miles away

Chicago could not muster a breeze
And there was a blizzard in The Keys
New England's charms were wasted on these eyes
I fear it came as no surprise
Because it's just another day
When you're 3000 miles away

[Chorus]

Distance is my tutor
So well he's teaching me
In the education of appreciation
And I got my PH.D.

In Georgia you're all that's on my mind
In Cape Cod the ocean was untied
And the motor city threw a rod
And now I'm praying to you God
Take me home to that face
3000 miles away
