Lyrics

There's an astronaut missing his children tonight sitting in his silver machinery.
He's in love with the world and stunned
by her size.
From where he sits, she looks mostly empty.

From here on the ground, I know how he feels, the curve of the world beneath me
seems impossibly large when I think of where
you are, how I can sing my heart out
and you won't hear me.

If I put my hand up and blow a kiss,
it'll never make it to you.
It'll go down over Kansas like Icarus, sink
like Amelia's last SOS.

I could drive to the great divide where rain
runs to your side or mine, put a bottle with a note in a river running to your coast asking
you how the world got so wide.

If I put my hand up and blow a kiss,
it'll never make it to you.
It'll go down over Kansas like Icarus, sink
like Amelia's last SOS.
