To the Moon and Back

To the Moon and Back by Savage Garden


She’s taking her time making up the reasons
To justify all the hurt inside
Guess she knows from the smile
And the look in their eyes
Everyone’s got a theory ’bout the bitter one
They’re saying momma never loved her much
And daddy never keeps in touch
That’s why she shies away from human affection

But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she’s waiting for the right kind of pilot to come
And she’ll say to him (She’s saying)

Chorus

I would fly to the moon and back
If you’ll be
If you’ll be my baby
Got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby

She can’t remember a time when she felt needed
If love was red then she was colour blind
All her friends – they’ve been tried for treason
And crimes that were never defined
She’s saying “love is like a barren place
And reaching out for human faith
Is like a journey I just don’t have a map for”

So baby’s gonna take a dive and
Push the shift to overdrive
Send a signal that she’s hanging all her hopes on the stars
What a pleasant dream (Just saying)

Chorus

Hold on hold on

Momma never loved her much
And daddy never keeps in touch
Thats why she shies away from human affection
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she’s waiting for the right
Kind of pilot to come
And she’ll say to him (Just saying)

Chorus twice

This is one of my favorite songs. I can sometimes relate to the meaning {sigh}.
