Kim about 'Million miles away'
'A Million Miles Away' was another very early song and we had started writing the album and things weren't going so well and then 'A Million Miles Away' and 'Who Do You Think You Are?' came up and we knew that it was going to be alright after we wrote 'A Million Miles Away' because it's such pure melody that Ricki came up with. It's a classic Rick song really, as soon as I came in and heard it I knew he's back on form you know, he's back on a roll. (1)
