They said the surface was suffocating,
They said the distance wasn't worth the waiting.
They said the pressure could crush the spirit of a man,
But none of them see the heavens from the place where I stand.

She is the brightest star that's in the sky,
She is the reason every astronaut would fly.
I see the lighting clouds of white on Cobalt fields of blue,
I close my eyes and sigh,
I can't believe it's true.

Chorus
The moon is burning bright,
I saw her face tonight,
I touched the seamless beauty with my hands,
I'm never going back again.

They said I'm foolish,
fleeting hopes in borrowed dreams.
They said forget her,
The moon is far beyond your reach.
I would run out of fuel long before I'd ever land,
But none of them can see this world.
From the place where I stand.

    General CommentThis is in my top 5 B.S.S song but I don't understand what it means. It seems like he wants to go to the moon and everyone else is saying that he can't, but why does he say "Im never going back again"? Going were? Somebode help me out with this one.

    General CommentI think the "I'm never going back again" is that he's on the moon and never wants to go back to Earth.

    General CommentI think it's a metaphor for a new romance. A girl who everyone told him wasn't worth the effort or was too far above him to be attainable, but he still tried. So now, regardless of the outcome, the effort was worth it, because he has now had the experience of shooting for the moon.

    At least, that's my take.
