Lets build a rocket to the moon
Just you and I
We could start a whole new world up there
Leave our past behind
Behind

Sometimes I can’t believe my eyes
I want to stare up
And get lost in the city lights
Because I’ve had enough and this is the end
And now I understand
That a heart breaks it does not bend

Someone please help me out
I never meant to take this so far
Now I’ve fallen way too hard
Take a long step back to
To The days when I was younger
Decisions never mattered all this much

It’s an emptied handed promise
>From my heart to my conscious
That says one day I will make this count
(the best that I know how)

The closest that I am to living life on the edge
Is packing all my bags, and heading off with my best friends

Someone please help me out
I never meant to take this so far
Now I’ve fallen way too hard
Take a long step back
To The days when I was younger
Decisions never mattered all this much

So let it all go
You have no worries now
(I’ve made my decision)
With the sun in your face you’re never beneath the clouds
(I’m Lifting)
And all the along the way I found you wishing on those clouds to move away
Grab my hand
Lets kiss the sun goodbye

I know the way to go it’s never as easy as it may seem
The takeoffs the landings, our rockets transcending
Ordinary, what’s ordinary?
(To the moon)

The takeoffs the landings, our rockets transcending
Ordinary, what’s ordinary?
(To the moon)

    General CommentGah, Valencia is so amazing! Not sure what the song means, although I do have an idea. I'm just still amped from seeing them tonight!

    General Commenti loveee how it starts off slow and kicks off and gets so angry and loud. i think it's about this guy leading an empty life and there is not a lot of action and fun.

    General Commentthis is seriously one of my favorite songs by valencia. but yeah, i think this song is about how he hates where he is in life, and wants to get away from it all, wishing someone would tell him things aren't as bad as they seem.

    i could be wrong, i'm not sure. but this is an amazing song.

    He is probably wishes that everyday in his life that it'll count.

    General CommentI remember JD saying once that one of his favorite lyrics they've ever written was "The closest I am to living life on the edge is packing all my bags and heading off with my best friends."
