Lyrics

You said you wanted some space... well is this enough for you? This is what you've waited for... no dust collecting in corners... or cups of tea that go cold before you drink them... Tonight, travelling at speed of thought, we're gonna escape into the stars...it doesn't matter if the lifts are out of order... or the car won't start... we're rising up... above the city... above forests... and fields... rivers and lakes... into the clouds... and there up above us the whole universe is shining in welcome...

Did you ever think this day would happen?... after days trying to sell washing machines in the rain... it looked like we'd never leave the ground... but we're weightless, floating free... we can go wherever we want... solar systems... constellations... galaxies... I'll race you to the nearest planet...

How many times have you wished upon a star? Now you can touch it, you can touch the stars, go on, don't be afraid. I remember you wanted some space... well, is this enough for you? Is it?... All the stars are bright... but they don't give out any heat... The planets are lumps of rock... floating in a vacuum... Yeah, space is cold... when you're on your own... I think it's time to go home... Pull my string... like a kite that flew too high... Now it's time to come down... look out below... Wait till I get back... I can see something... Yeah, I wanted some space... but now I know... It's okay, space is okay... But I'd rather... I'd rather get my... I rather get my kicks down below. Oh yeah, c'mon, get down.

Sleeve notes

...so we finally made it into orbit (good init?). But like the man said "Space is O.K. but I'd rather get my kicks down below."
