"Space Travel" as written by William Ryan Key and Peter Michael Mosely....
I heard a voice last night
It said wake up and open your eyes
Wake up walk out tonight
'Cause she don't care if you're dead or alive
Dead or alive

She moves like beams of light
Straight through this universe in my head
Where I get peace of mind
Free from the stupid things that I said
She's all in my head

Did I get lost while I was gone
I traveled space for much too long
But there's a planet I have found
And you are far away

Somewhere behind her eyes
Some supernatural energy
Takes me for quite the ride
Across time where I defy gravity
This energy

Did I get lost while I was gone
I traveled space for much too long
But there's a planet I have found
And you are far away for now

Did I get lost while I was gone
I traveled space for much too
Did I get lost while I was gone
I traveled space for much too long
But there's a planet I have found
And you are far away
(Far away)
You are far away
Far away for now

    General CommentI think this song, unlike your theories of a person missing a girl, is about YC missing their home, when they think of it they feel peaceful, and when they're on tour or whatever they miss it so much it fills their heads.

    'I traveled space for much too long
    But there's a planet I have found
    And you are far away'
    -This probably means that they have been away from home for so long and they've discovered another place called Hollywood where fame is the air the people breath in, and that is so different and far away from home.

    General CommentCan anyone understand the 'astronauts' in the bridge?
    I can get as far as:

    What do we do now?
    we wait.
    Wait for what?
    For her to come back.
    I don’t think she’s coming back.

    but then the music kicks in and I can't make out a word. This is my favorite part of the song though.

    General Comment"i heard a voice last night, it said wake up and open your eyes, wake up walk out tonight, cause she don't care if you're dead or alive, dead or alive"
    - from that, it sounds like the person has been pining over some girl and maybe she's just wrong for him or they went through a bad situation and that he should get back to reality and to look beyond what he sees her as...

    She moves likes beams of light, straight through this universe in my head, where I get peace of mind,
    im free from stupid things that I said, she's all in my head
    - beams of light usually reflect off something and move into another direction. maybe it's saying how everything he thinks of reminds him of her... universe in his head is probably his mind.. and how erm...he can make himself seem not stupid in the "fantasies" that he has about her or he may just be regretting what he said to her and in his mind he can forget it?

    Did I get lost while I was gone, I travelled space for much to long, there's a planet i have found, and you are far away
    - i guess that could mean that he wasn't being himself, he let himself get so carried away by it all...he was "spaced" out thinking about her all this time and maybe he's suggesting they are on different planets and he can't reach her

    Somewhere behind her eyes, some supernatural energy, takes me for quite the ride,across time where I define gravety or sanity
    - right...there's something about her that makes him go...not himself. there's something special about her, it's like magic that draws him to her and he does stuff that he would never really do...and plus...i thought it was defy gravity..which in that cause could mean he's just floating on air when he sees her...or something

    What would the sentence be, if I could say it all at once,
    - sentence for taking his heart? for making him act like a fool??

    okay, i dont know how understandable that whole thing was lol.
