"Space" lyrics - PULP


You said you wanted some space
Well is this enough for you?
This is what you've waited for
No dust collecting in the corners
No cups of tea that got cold before you drank them
Travelling at the speed of thought
We're going to escape into the stars
It doesn't matter if the lifts are out of order
Or the car won't start
We're rising up
Above the city
Over forests
Over fields
Rivers and lakes
Into the clouds
And up above us
The whole universe is shining a welcome
Did you ever really think this day would happen
After days trying to sell washing-machines on your own?
It looked like we never left the ground
But we're weightless
Floating free
We can go wherever we want
Solar systems
I'll race you to the nearest planet
How many times have you wished upon a star?
Now you can touch it
You can touch the stars
Go on
Don't be afraid
"I only wanted some space"
Well is this enough for you?
Is it?
Well the stars are bright
But they don't give out any heat
The planets
Are lumps of rock
Floating in a vacuum
Yeah, space is cold
When you're on your own
I think it's time to go home
Pulling my strings
Like a kite that flew too high
And now it's time to come down
Look out below
Wait 'til I get back
You can see something
You can see space
But now I know
It's O.K.
Space is O.K.
But I'd rather
I'd rather get my
I'd rather get my kicks down below
Oh yeah
Come on
