They said the surface was suffocating,
They said the distance wasn't worth the waiting.
They said the pressure could crush the spirit of a man,
But none of them see the heavens from the place where I stand.
She is the brightest star that's in the sky,
She is the reason every astronaut would fly.
I see the lighting clouds of white on Cobalt fields of blue,
I close my eyes and sigh,
I can't believe it's true.
The moon is burning bright,
I saw her face tonight,
I touched the seamless beauty with my hands,
I'm never going back again.
They said I'm foolish,
Fleeting hopes in borrowed dreams.
They said forget her,
The moon is far beyond your reach.
I would run out of fuel long before I'd ever land,
But none of them can see this world.
From the place where I stand.
