Floating right by me in a velvet dress
She seems so totally out of place in outer space
I must be delusional, a real head case
'Cause the lunar surface is the wrong address in such a dress

But I saw her eyes
She was real
Was she wearing that dress just for me?
And I'm all inside out now

There is a space in my heart
An infinite casing of darkness
There is a space in my heart
Waiting to be filled by her

I've surfed on comets through cosmic debris
And still here I am a lost at the Sea of Tranquility
I've got no chance to get home, the only place for me
Is inside this helmet that I'm living in, breathing in

But her eyes
They were real
Did she skyrocket out here just for me?
And it's all inside out now

There is a space in my heart
An infinite casing of darkness
There is a space in my heart
Waiting to be filled by her

Dark matter clustered in a phoenix ray
Implosions on a galactic scale ...yeah

There is a space in my heart
An infinite casing of darkness
An empty old space in my heart
I see her face in the stars
In supernovas and pulsars

There is a space in my heart
I can't get out of it
(I can't get, I... can't... get)
I can't get out of it
(I can't get, I... can't... get)
I can't get out of it
(I can't get, I... can't... get)
I can't get out of it
(I can't get, I... can't... get)

(I can't get, I... can't... get)
I can't get out of it
(I can't get, I... can't... get)
I can't get out of it
(I can't get, I... can't... get)
I can't get out of it
(I can't get, I... can't... get)

    Lyric CorrectionThese lyrics are missing the first two lines:

    Floating right by me in a velvet dress
    She seems so totally out of the place in outer space

    General CommentIn a middle of a break up I started listening to my CDs of Jarle Bernhoft and this song reminded me of my first love, and how I myself felt that time. It was impossible for me to understand that a girl this perfect would like a guy like me. In this relationship i was the one doing the breaking up, and it also made me understand what the woman I'm breaking up with might have felt once, and the dreams for the future I might have taken away from her.

    My InterpretationI like to think the lyrics are almost literal, written through the perspective of an astronaut that for being for so long in outer space, starts allucinating about a girl in a velvet dress and then falls in love with her. The chorus for example is a metaphor that mixes the idea of a real astronaut in outer space and his feelings, comparing them to elements of the universe.
