Savage Garden – To the moon and back

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 saying

(chorus)

I would fly you 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?

Ooh-ooh

She can’t remember a time

When she felt needed

If love was red then she was color-blind

All her friends they’ve been trialed for treason

And crimes that were never defined

But 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 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

I would fly you 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?

[instrumental]

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 saying

(repeat chorus)
