lyrics

You’re the American Astronaut
You can shoot me to the moon
You’re black and white and leather bound
I smell the jet-flame fuel and feel your heartbeat pound

Chorus:
And the only sounds out here
Are fearless notes
And tearless nights
We’ve left the ground, we’re almost out of sight.
Strap me in and make your rocket fly.
We won’t come back till all the wrong we’ve done is right.

Hot night. Space bar fight.
The only rule is you can’t bite.
Empty glasses, loaded glances.
Won’t you take me now to Mars?
Cuz we’ve already come so far

Chorus:
And the only sounds out here
Are fearless notes
And tearless nights
We’ve left the ground, we’re almost out of sight.
Strap me in and make this rocket fly.
We won’t come back till all the wrong we’ve done is right.

You’re the American Astronaut
You can shoot me to the moon.
