When, when will you be landing?
When, when will you return?
Feel, feel my heart expanding
You and your alien arms

All my earthly dreams are shattered
I'm so tired, I quit
Take me forever, it doesn't matter
Deep inside of your ship

La, la la la la la landing
Please, oh won't you return?
Feel, see your blue lights are flashing
You and your alien arms

Deep in the forest I whirl
Like I did as a little girl
Let my eyes rise in the sky
Looking for you

Oh, you know
I would go anywhere at all
'Cause no star is too far
With you, with you

La, la la la la la landing.
Please, oh won't you return?
Feel, feel my heart expanding
You and your alien arms

All my earthly dreams are shattered
I'm so tired, I quit
Take me forever, it doesn't matter
Deep inside of your ship
Land, land

Oh, I am waiting for you
Oh, I am waiting for you
Oh, I am waiting for you
Waiting for you to take me up in your arms by my starry spine
Distant, distant fingers
Oh, I am waiting for you
Waiting for you
Oh, I am waiting for you

    General CommentThis song is about the same subject as Birdland on the previous album, Horses.

    ''This song is based on a book called "A Book of Dreams" which is the memoirs of Peter Reich. Peter was the son of Wilhelm Reich, a contraversial psychiatrist and inventor who, in 1947, was imprisoned for his work and a year later died of heart failure while serving his sentence. The moment described in the song comes after the death of Peter's father, and some of the elements are actually in the book; such as Peter seeing his father come down in a UFO. It's a fascinating book.''

    In 1975 she said at a concert: ''The French let Jean Jaures out of prison but the Americans left Wilhelm Reich to die in his so everyday his little son Peter would go looking for his dad & hoped that he would come down & come & get him in a big black U.F.O - O-O-O.''
