The Astronaut

This song is by By Heart and appears on the album Exit Signs (2006).

The Astronaut



In a Honda

On the 5 to LA

With the New Year

Just some hours away



I turn to my left and try

To capture your smile

As headlights are dancing round

Just like fireflies



In a soft tone

You are starting to sing

To a record

That you told me to bring



We listen to awkward rhymes

For mile after mile

The world's flying by outside

As a flash of light



A flash of light, a flash of light

From all the cars and exit-signs

The cars and exit-signs

A flash of light, a flash of light

When our shadows collide

Scatter all around



In a Motel

On a bed, as we rest,

You examine

Every hair on my chest



You ask me to turn around

And not close my eyes

My muscles betray me now

When I try to find



A flash of light, a flash of light

A tiny motion in your eyes

A motion in your eyes

A flash of light, a flash of light

When our shadows break out

Crash into the night



A flash of light, a flash of light

An open crack in every cloud

A crack in every cloud

I'm paralyzed, I'm paralyzed

When our shadows unite

Stretched before our eyes
