"Astronaut" as written by and Victoria Garance Alixe Legrand Alex Kristian Scally....
Come over to my house
I'll pour some tea for us
One sugar or two
Your hand is right in front of me,
Your finger fragilely, holy on, my side

Faster than an astronaut
Who's coming home to what
He left long ago
I've made this brand new bed for
You, I trust the things we do, Holy or not

Open the gate cause you're already late,

at the end at the lane, is a glass of
Lemona-ade, keep or the path when
You hear the laugh, in the white of her
Palm is your heart!

(I'll be brave for a while, I won't bring you down anymore then you are)

Please, be my baby, don't mean
Maybe or not, look out the
Window, there's a bright, yellow cat

    General CommentHere, Victoria's ambiguous lyrics could mean alot. Perhaps she's singing about coming home to a love. Worried that the person could have moved on.

    I love toward the end of the song, at exactly 4:00 into the song, when she starts humming. Her angelic yet haunting voice is MEZMORIZING.


    It's such a beautiful, chilling song.

    General CommentI think this song is about sex too. Specifically about two lovers meeting after a very long time like an astronaut and his lady. The line I've made this brand new bed for you also points out to that (I think it's a reference to Ulyses, who upon returning home made a new bed for his wife and him to spend their first night on). Also the structure of this song resembles that of making love - the moment Victoria sings I'll be brave.. being the orgasm.

    General CommentI can't help but believe this song is directed to a person coming home from war/deployment. She metaphorically describes an astronaut to a soldier. Both subjects departing to a foreign place, for long periods of time. Comparing soldiers to astronauts gives it a dreamy, wistful longing. Basically saying you are somewhere so far out of reach yet I hold onto your heart for when you come back I'll be here.

    "I'll be brave for a while" it's a life threatening career but I love you and I will wait for you. Its such a romantic song, I just melt.
