lyrics

I go outside for light
If you were to open your hatch
You'd be lost from sight

I sleep quite sound at night
Gravity you left back home
Straps hold you tight

I've been up in a plane
Shot to fame
And when I touched the ground
I cried until it rained
I'm not as brave
As I thought
Astronaut

But you
What do you do for fun
Do you still comb your hair
Or don't little things like that
Matter way up there
How will you face the crowd
How will you share
The common air on earth again
It's hard enough to breathe in space

I keep my windows clean
I'll bet space dust
Behaves unexpectedly

Is it the best view you've ever seen
Or does time spent away
Change everything

I've been up in a plane
Shot to fame
And when I touched the ground
I cried until it rained
I'm not as brave
As I thought
Astronaut

But you
What do you do for fun
Do you still comb your hair
Or don't little things like that
Matter way up there
How will you face the crowd
How will you share
The common air on earth again
It's hard enough to breathe in space

I'm not as brave as you are
But then I haven't been that far
Not even halfway to the stars
And you live right there where they are
So maybe
Fear can't follow to that height
And maybe
It would be music to my eyes
Show me the mountains of the universe
And I would learn to breathe in space

But you
What do you do for fun
Do you still comb your hair
Or don't little things like that
Matter way up there
How will you face the crowd
How will you share
The common air on earth again
It's hard enough to breathe in space

It's hard enough to breathe in space
