Don't I have a pretty face
And a nice wide small?
And hey there,
Would you like to know my name?
I would love to have you over,
But someone locked the door,
And I can't reverse the engines anymore.

Can you hear me up in outer space?
(And the world keeps spinning round.)
Can you hear me up in outer space?
On the new black fella, in my shoes, and my warm tweed suit.

I have all the latest records from the new fangled bands.
And I play them on my hi-fi stereo.
There's a little red button near the mailbox over head
To get me out of any kind of jam.

Can you hear me up in outer space?
(And the world keeps spinning round.)
Can you hear me up in outer space?
If we could only reach each other,
We might have gone all the way.
We might have gone all the way.
We might have gone all the way.
We might have gone all the way.
We might have gone all the way.
We might have gone all the way.
We might have gone all the way.
We might have gone all the way.
We might have gone all the way.
We might have gone all the way.

    General CommentYou sure? I assumed it was about the loneliness and shyness that characterize modern living, not a break-up but a failure to ever make a connection with someone special.

    General Commenthe wrote this one after a break up so that was my guess, but you seem to be much better at this whole "analyzing" thing than me.
