If you happened to look in the sky
At 10:21 Thursday night
A crazy thing happened just south of the moon
A glimmer of coherent light
Now I can’t say if it moved
From east to west or west to east
But I’m pretty sure it moved and I’m pretty sure it moved me

But oh, so far away
Too far to place my faith in tired eyes
But maybe you saw it too
If you did I’m a little bit closer to you

Now I don’t want to post to a blog
Or call up my rep in DC
Don’t want anyone to confirm or deny
Or ruin this moment for me
Cause I can’t say what it was
Or what to do or what I know
But I’m pretty sure I’m here and I’m pretty sure you’re far away

And oh, so far away
Too far to place my faith in memory
But maybe you feel it too
If you do I’m a little bit closer

It’s only sixty miles until the edge of space
But I will never get there if I keep this earthly pace

For now I’ll stay on the ground
Watching the sun, feeling the spin
And find the perfect vantage point
Let the astral show begin
So if you happen to look at the sky
At 10:21 Monday night
Could be a comet or UFO
Or only the embers from long ago
But whatever you see I’m pretty sure I’ll see it too

Oh, so far away
