Lyrics

the lonely journey that I took
was not learnt by the book

I left on a whim
without a note or a kiss

and all the places that I've seen
can't compare to what I saw
from my spaceship

I travelled to the moon
'cos I'd made a promise to you
that I would pick up a stone
from that old friend soon

the earth was just a speck of dust
and all my hopes turned to rust
when I realized I was lost in space

you know how I tend to drift away

I travelled to the moon
'cos I'd made a promise to you
that I would pick up a stone
from that old friend soon

I travelled to the moon
and I broke my promise to you
