Simple Plan – Astronaut lyrics

[Verse 1]
Can anybody hear me,
Or am I talking to myself?
My mind is running empty,
In the search for someone else
Who doesn't look right through me
,
It's all just static in my head.
Can anybody tell me why
I'm lonely like a satellite?

[Chorus]
Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut ,
Sending SOS from
this tiny box.
And I lost all signal when I lifted up,
Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot.
Can I please come down? (come down)
Because I'm tired of drifting round and round (and round).
Can I please come down?

[Verse 2]
I'm deafened by the silence.
Is it something that I've done
?
I know that there are millions,
I can't be the only one
Who's so disconnected,
It's so different in my head.
Can anybody tell me why
I'm lonely like a satellite?

[Chorus]
Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut ,
Sending SOS from this tiny box.
And I lost all signal when I lifted up,
Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot.
Can I please come down? (come down)
Because I'm tired of drifting round and round (and round).
Can I please come down?

[Hook]
Now I lie awake and scream,
In a zero gravity,
And it's starting to weigh down on me.
Let's abort this mission now,
Can I please come down?

[Bridge]
So tonight I'm calling all astronauts,
All lonely people that the world forgot,
If you hear my voice come pick me up.
Are you out there?
'Cause you're all I've got!
And tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut ,
Sending SOS from this tiny box.
And I lost all signal when I lifted up,
Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot.

Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut,
Sending SOS from this tiny box
To the lonely people that the world forgot,
Are you out there?
Cause you're all I've got!

[Outro]
Can I please come down? (please, please, please come down)
Cause I'm tired of drifting round and round (I'm tired of drifting round)
Can I please come down? (please, please, please come down)
Can I please come down?
Can I please come down?

    The astronaut is, in my opinion, a person who is lonely and want to find someone else like him, in the way that the person who he is looking for is also an astronaut. This person is not meant to be the one you love, but just the one you need. A lonely person who is looking for his soul sister, or just a friend that understands him like no one ever did. A lost soul, an astronaut!

    For me, the astronaut here is like a person who feel so abandoned. A person who needs someone to understand them about his life and what's his going through but unfortunately, no one wants or can get through with him. He thought that people think he's not existing at all.

    This song I find that is referring to people who can't find anyone to confine and feeling lonely at all times. Well, its more on emotional. They name it " astronaut" because it refers to people who lost the sense of life in this world as people drift away from the lonely ones. Needed help but no ones helping. This song is really meaningful and great. Be it the lyrics or the tempo, it sounds great.

    For me, its about a person - the astronaut who wants to find someone who is willing to listen to them, someone who they can share their thoughts with and someone who can understand them. And this is their final attempt at reaching out to the world after being 'drifting' around various groups of people that doesn't understand them.
    It a song that I can relate to even when I first heard it.

    The singer poignantly describes his current state of mind-of being lonely and missing the one who, he wishes, could be his. He doesn't want to be so "alone like a satellite", where he uses this similie throughout the song, comparing the loneliness he is going through. Also, as there are many satellites, so are many lonely people: "i know that there are millions". He has noble thoughts-he "calls" upon all those lonely people out there-to break free from these strong chains of loneliness. He pleads, rather begs, to "come down", which means, to break away from his present state.
