If I could have one wish right now
I'd be about as half as tough as I pretend I am
I wouldn't care empty this old house feels
I'd take her things and take 'em far away from here
I'd make sure no dirt ever got on her name
But lookin' at that stone would bring me so much pain
I'd go into town wearin' my finest clothes
I'd turn these tears into blood & make it run ice cold

Space City's one hour up the road from me
It's one hour away from as close to the moon as anybody down here's ever gonna be
Somewhere beyond that big white light is where my heart has gone
Somewhere she's wonderin' what's takin' me so long

My hands are as good to me as they've ever been
I ain't ashamed of anything my hands ever did
Sometimes the words I used were as hard as my fist
She had the strength of a man and the heart of a child I guess

Space City's one hour up the road from me
It's one hour away from as close to the moon as anybody down here's ever gonna be
Somewhere beyond that big white light is where my heart has gone
Somewhere she's wonderin' what's takin' me so long
