David Mead – Astronaut lyrics

So i'm hittin the town tonight
Cinder blocks for feet
Shufflin' through all the gazes i know better than to meet
Finally i found a home
I finally have to leave

Another permanent place i'd always hoped i'd make it to
I'm not the first of the astronauts to reach first avenue
A suburban flower tryin' to break some city rules

Cause i'm leavin the ground tonight
I'm over your ceilin'
Life is but a dream
And though you may pretend
This is how it ends
Gone again
Gone again

So baby open your canyons up
And sweep me right along
Won't you give me your cold embrace
I'll give you one more song
Then you tell me a lie
And say you'll miss me when i'm gone


Couldn't tell you for sure the view is better from above
I'm not the first of the astronauts to leave the place i love
