Chances are that this song and lyrics will ring a bell for most of you: “I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more.” Place the melody? It’s an incredibly popular song from the late eighties by The Proclaimers. Well, this cover by Sleeping At Last, which featured on “Grey’s Anatomy”, is so heartfelt and changes what some consider a cheesy song to one which has so much emotion and would be magical for a processional or first dance. Hope you enjoy it.

I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)

When I wake up, well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who wakes up next to you.
And when I go out, yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who goes along with you.

And when I come home, yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s coming home to you.
And when I’m dreamin’, well I know I’m gonna dream
I’m gonna dream about the time when I’m with you.

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

When I’m workin’, yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s workin’ hard for you.
And when the money comes in for the work I do
I’ll pass along every cent of it to you.

And when I’m lonely, well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s lonely without you.
And if I grow old, well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s growing old with you.

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door [x2]

When I wake up, well I hope I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s waking up to you.
And when I’m dreamin’, well I know I’m gonna dream
I’m gonna dream about the time I had with you.
