You Needed Space

You chose the stratosphere over what we had down here.

lyrics

We were so good together,
I thought it would last forever.
Then came the tears
and the hungry years,
alone in the space station
just you and your imagination.
You chose the stratosphere
over what we had down here.
Now I count the stars and cry
as I stare at the evening sky
and wait for the fog to clear
so I can feel you near
because all I have of you
is a view of Saturn's moons.
When you said you needed space
You meant outer space.

I'm in freefall since you left me
I'm in freefall, zero gravity.
(precious synth solo)
I'm in freefall since you left me
I'm in freefall, zero gravity.

It seems such a lonely place
that empty station up in space
do you miss me when you look down
and see the earth so small and round?
Or do you look the other way
at the future as it meets today?
Was it love, that spark in your eye -
or just a comet streaking by?
I guess I'll never know
why you had to let me go.
It seems such a lonely place
that empty station up in space.
It seems such a lonely place
that empty station up in space.
It seems such a lonely place
that empty station up in space.
