Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's time a to change, hey, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey

Tell me did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the milky way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

Now that she's back from that soul vacation
Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
She checks out Mozart while she does tae-bo
Reminds me that there's room to grow, hey, hey

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
I'm afraid that she might think of me as plain ol Jane
Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back to the milky way
And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you... even when I know you're wrong
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance five-hour phone
Conversation
The best soy latte that you ever had... And me

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back toward the milky way

Repeat 1st chorus

    I think he is trying to find out from her that maybe the grass wasn't really greener on the other side...or he is hoping that's how she feels. Whatever this song means, it makes me cry every time I hear it.

    She went to find herself and make something of her life and he is wondering if she still thinks of him or if she found someone better or someone "without a permanent scar" meaning someone less broken and less complicated. He hopes he's still good enough for her and that she thinks of their good times as he does and maybe shell come back to him.

    i have always liked this song, it's one of the few slow songs that i listen to. and the part when he starts talking about food i just think he's saying to remember the small, yet good things in life like deep-fried chicken, soy lattes and himself, who he hopes she didn't forget about.

    i think its about how a girl went out on her own to find herself, and there's a boy waiting for her when she gets back, but he's afraid that he's not good enuff for her.
