On solid fuel and wires
Turn the key and light the fires
We're leaving Earth today
This rocket's burning bright
We'll soon be out of sight
And orbiting in space

Pushed back in my seat
Look out my window
There goes home
That ball of shiny blue
Houses everybody anybody ever knew

So sing your song I'm listening
Out where stars are glistening
I can hear your voices bouncing off the Moon
If you could see our nation
From the International Space Station
You'd know why I want to get back soon

Eighteen thousand miles an hour
Fuelled by science and solar power
The oceans racing past
At half a thousand tons
Ninety minutes, Moon to Sun
A bullet can't go half this fast

Floating from my seat
Look out my window
There goes home
(There goes home)
That brilliant ball of blue
Is where I'm from, and also where I'm going to

So sing your song I'm listening
Out where stars are glistening
I can hear your voices bouncing off the Moon
If you could see our nation
From the International Space Station
You'd know why I want to get back soon
(Get back soon)

All black and white just fades to grey
Where the sun rises sixteen times a day
You can't make out borders from up here
Just a spinning ball within a tiny atmosphere
(Atmosphere)

Pushed back in my seat
Look out my window
Here comes home
What once was fuelled by fear
Now has fifteen nations orbiting together here

So sing your song I'm listening
Out where stars are glistening
I can hear your voices bouncing off the Moon
If you could see our nation
From the International Space Station
You'd know why I want to get back soon
(Get back soon)

You'd know why I want to get back soon
(Getting back to you, getting back to you)
You'd know why I want to get back soon
(Getting back to you, getting back to you)
Yeah, you'd know why I want to get back soon
(Getting back to you, getting back to you)
You'd know why I want to get back soon
