To The Moon & Back

Lyrics

playShe's taking her time
playmaking up the reasons
playTo justify all the hurt inside
playGuess she knows
playFrom the smiles and the look in their eyes
playEveryone's got a theory about the bitter one

playThey're saying, "Mama never loved her much
playAnd daddy never keeps in touch
playThat's why she shies away from human affection
playBut somewhere in a private place
playShe packs her bags for outer space
playAnd now she's waiting for
playthe right kind of pilot to come"
playAnd she'll say to him
playShe's sayin'

play"I would fly to the moon and back if you'll be
playIf you'll be my baby
playI've got a ticket for a world where we belong
playSo would you be my baby?"

playShe can't remember a time
playWhen she felt needed
playIf love was red then she was color blind
playAll her friends
playWell they've been tried for treason
playAnd crimes that were never defined

playShe's saying, "Love is like a barren place
playAnd reaching out for human faith is
playIt's like a journey I just don't have a map for
playSo baby's gonna take a dive and a
playPush the shift to overdrive
playSend a signal
playthat she's hanging all her hopes on the stars
playWhat a pleasant dream"
playShe's sayin'

play"I would fly to the moon and back if you'll be
playIf you'll be my baby
playI've got a ticket for a world where we belong
playSo would you be my baby?"

playHold on, hold on

play"Mama never loved her much
playAnd, daddy never keeps in touch
playThat's why she shies away from human affection
playBut somewhere in a private place
playShe packs her bags for outer space
playAnd now she's waiting for
playthe right kind of pilot to come"
playAnd she'll say to him
playShe's sayin'

play"I would fly to the moon and back if you'll be
playIf you'll be my baby
playI've got a ticket for a world where we belong
playSo would you be my baby?"

play"I would fly to the moon and back if you'll be
