about

I am well aware that migration is a complicated, controversial, highly emotive and ever-present issue nowadays. Tragedy, Politics and Satire are but three subjects in which it has surfaced. Although I have my opinions, I do not believe that this is the forum to conduct debate.
This is about something different.
THE SONG

lyrics

I kissed my mothers lips for the last time
Can't believe it,
I filled my hand with sand for the last time
Can't believe it,
I put the family picture in a locket,
Put a thousand memories in my pocket,
Turned to look around at my home town,
But can't see it,
Then walked a thousand miles in the desert,
Just to leave it.

Chorus
Hey Yeah, Yeah, Yeah X 2

I walked a thousand miles in the desert,
Can't believe it,
I reached the promised land,
Can't believe it,
I held the family picture in it's locket,
But the gates had men with guns in their pockets
You got to turn around now can't you see it,
But I walked a thousand miles in the desert,
Just to be here

Chorus
Hey Yeah,Yeah, Yeah X 2

I kissed my mothers lips for the last time,
You believe it,
I filled my hand with sand for the last time,
You believe it,
I put the family picture in a locket,
Put a thousand memories in my pocket,
I hold the hopes of many in that locket,
Ain't no men with guns going to stop it,
I can't just turn around now can't you see it,
I walked a thousand miles in the desert
And I beat it.

Chorus
Hey Yeah, Yeah, Yeah X 5

about

PULSE160 Galway, Ireland

Hi, Tom Campbell here. I am a singer songwriter based in the west of Ireland. 'Walked 1000 miles' is my latest single to be found at pulse160.com.
I was lucky to have exceptional help from all the artists involved in this project.
My earlier album 'OK Life' can also be found here. I really hope that you enjoy it and that it provokes a little thought in your life.
Happy Christmas to all.
