Millions of miles apart, but I can still feel your presence

Gazing at the sky, not a cloud in sight,

Zip up my jacket, on a breezy autumn night.

Stars as far as the eye can see, but I’m searching

For the one in motion, searching for my satellite.

 

Became weightless, without the chains of gravity,

You ascended into the atmosphere, without me.

Since you’ve left, I’ve felt nothing except apathy,

One day I’ll join you, we’ll catch up over coffee.

 

Actually, a coffee date upon the rings of Saturn,

Get comfortable, lots of lost time to make up for.

Deep within the dead air, I hear a faint laughter

Echoing in the distance, it sounds just like yours.

 

Left with phantom sensations, still feel your touch

Upon my skin, softly tracing the veins on my arms.

Mad that you left me, but I refuse to hold a grudge,

You’re watching over me, within our galaxy.

 

Orbiting around the earth, my eye in the sky,

Millions of miles apart, but I can feel your presence.

In the stages of grief, haven’t reached acceptance,

My heart aches for you, I want to join you in outer space.

 

You’re a satellite, and I’m blasting off as the astronaut,

Hop in my apricot rocket ship, baby I’ll be there soon.

Within the dead space, the sound of a single gunshot

Shatters the silence, gentlemen we’ve reached liftoff.
