Track Name: To The Sky
Those were our days, we would space-walk in the park
I made you laugh, we kicked the grass
I didn’t float home until the dark.

And you never grew cold, but you grew distant, never told me why.
I was a clown, said I’d be around
I was a fool to let you fly.

Got my space suit on
I’ve got dotted arrows drawn upon the night
As the count down runs, all the systems hum
I can follow arrows to the sky.

When the engines run
I’ve got green lights right across the board
I locked everyone out, but I do not doubt
and now it really seems as if a man can touch the sky.

I lost those days, and how the vacuum’s more complete
You are not there, not anywhere
that I can reach on aching feet.

I will not let it end, I’ve watched the wall clock since you’re gone.
My head tilts back, to view the black
and you’re a pale star in the dawn.

Got my space suit on
I’ve got dotted arrows drawn upon the night
As the count down runs, all the systems hum
I can follow arrows to the sky.

When the engines run
I’ve got green lights right across the board
I locked everyone out, but I do not doubt – but now …

Houston, I have a problem, it has to be there’s love in outer space
but there is too much junk beyond the place where all the blue turns black
and how can one man in his tiny can have ever hoped …
I had a space suit on …
