“A Thousand Miles” is written in the key of B major. Carlton wrote the song's piano riff in the summer of 1998 at her parents' house in Philadelphia; her mother, who had been listening to her, said, “Vanessa, that's a hit song.” Carlton was unable to finish the song because of a case of writer's block, and did not return to it for several months. While looking for a record label that would sign her, Carlton played the beginning of the song for a record producer, who said, “You have to finish that.” She returned to her parents' home and finished it in an hour one evening, naming it “Interlude.” Some years later, Carlton recorded a demo tape (which featured several tracks, including “Interlude”) and sent it to various producers and labels in the hopes that one would sign her. Some expressed interest, but Carlton did not agree with their suggestions for alternative titles for the song. One of the tapes found its way to Ron Fair, head of A&M Records, who recalled that “It was extraordinary, but also in some respects kind of screwed up as a record. It didn't press the emotional buttons the way I envisioned it.” Carlton met with Fair for a piano session to alter the arrangement of the song, “so the heartbeat came in a different way”, Fair said. During the session, more time signatures and transitions were inserted into the song, and the timing of the repetition of the chorus was changed. Additionally, the instrumental opening was shortened and an orchestra section was added by Fair; the lyrics, however, remained the same. He explained: “It has a lot of starts and stops to it, which makes it hard to achieve a flow, but I wanted to make a really dramatic record. The song is like a mini musical of its own.” “A Thousand Miles” took fourteen sessions to record, and was the first song recorded for Be Not Nobody. As well as conducting the orchestra, Fair also organized a small band for its recording: John Goux played guitar on the track, Leland Sklar played bass guitar, and Abe Laboriel, Jr. played drums. Carlton later said, “after listening to it I realized I was going to make an album that I was very proud of.” The selection of the song's title was accompanied by a minor disagreement between Carlton and Fair, who was reportedly “adamant” about changing it. Fair said, "Vanessa Carlton is an incredible talent, but she's also very stubborn... I had to say, 'Look, I'm the president of the label, we're not calling it “Interlude”. ' When you're trying to launch a career, people need a handle to pick things up from, and the word 'Interlude' is never in the song". In its finished form, the song was first heard during a scene in the Reese Witherspoon film Legally Blonde (2001), and was featured on the film's soundtrack under the title “A Thousand Miles (Interlude)”. The final title of the song, “A Thousand Miles”, was based on a suggestion by Fair's nephew. After the song's completion, Fair said that he listened to it repeatedly and “it made me weep. That's usually my litmus test. If I cry, I know it's a hit”. Despite this, he was concerned that the song's piano basis would put it at a disadvantage in the marketplace if it were to be released as a single. Fair played “A Thousand Miles” in front of his superior Jimmy Iovine, the co-chairman of Interscope-Geffen-A&M. Iovine was very impressed with the song, and requested that a music video be filmed immediately for it. After the video had been completed it was presented to Tom Calderone, the Vice President of Programming for MTV, in early 2002. Calderone expressed a desire to begin broadcasting the video at once and Fair agreed to his request, even though the album was still in production at the time and Carlton's marketing “image” had not yet been developed.
