Some People Are Spaceships

from by Odd Owl



Verse 1:
Taking off for outer rim
I know we talked about it
It’s not going to make it any easier
Leaving you like this

But each star born from your mouth
Is burning light years away
And every hint that flickers out
Dances ‘round the room like swordplay

Ooh, now I hear nothing at all
Ooh, now I hear nothing at all

It’s getting so cold in here
The words have frozen to my lips
So I’ll send my thoughts in dots and dashes
Straight to you from my spaceship

If only you’d receive the message
As if you could read my mind
But every reason I invent just
Leaves your answer far behind

Verse 2:
Staring out at constellations
Wondering if I rewrote the cards
Would we be settled in some city
With five kids and a yard

You dove down to black hole in my heart
Stuck around though you always knew
Maybe leaving was letting me take the fall
So you don’t have to


Some people are spaceships
Only fit for big, big spaces
Some people are spaceships
Flying off to distant places
