Savage Garden: To The Moon And Back

TO THE MOON AND BACK
/Savage Garden/

She's taking her time making up the reasons
To justify all the hurt inside
Guess she knows from the smiles
And the look in their eyes
Everyone's got a theory about the bitter one
They're saying, 'Mama 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 sayin'

[Chorus:]
I would fly to the Moon and back
If you'll be, if you'll be my baby
I've 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 color blind
All her friends, well 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
It's 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
She's sayin'

[Chorus]

Mama 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 sayin'

[Chorus] [2x]
