You could keep me awake for days,
Before I change for bed.
You could keep me alive and well,
Long after I'm dead.

You and me could be apart in outer space,
But you would make the universe seem like a tiny place.

And I'm glad that you looked back before heading for the hills,
Cause all I would have is your empty shoes no one else could fill.

You and me could be apart in outer space,
But you would make the universe seem like a tiny place.

But what's next? A flight, a trip to somewhere strange?
How about dinner, a movie, a trip to the zoo?
Maybe...I better start digging for change.
