dark(ish), maybe 90s or early 2000s song
I can't remember all too much about it, other than it containing either exactly those, or similar sounding lyrics (am not a native speaker and was very young at that time):
"... a thousand miles away ...".
It was sung by a male and one other thing I can remember is that there was a segment where he sung "heeeeeeey" in a very high pitched voice.
I can also recall a violin or a similar sounding instrument playing a short melody like: dudu du duduuuuu.
I might be mistaken, but I seem to recall that in the music video (it might not have been this song's music video), there was a sunset at a beach and a car (on the beach) or maybe it was cliffs.
I heard it sometime in between 1994 - 2005, but me having lived in Austria, the song might have come out way earlier.
