I am astronaut
I am astronaut
I am the sole reason this shuttle will sink or swim against the wind
I am the sole reason this shuttle will sink or swim against the wind
Jet fuel is so expensive when I’m nineteen and I know what I’ve been missing
The life that all my friends will chase is the same life that I will always hate

You're calling out my name again
I’m wondering, where have you been?
Those nights I’ve spent away from you shooting for the moon
I begged you to show me the maps and notes
I know they read, "This is where we lost the thing keeping us alive"

She said she’s building me a rocket ship
And sometimes I’m dumb to believe, this and her it’s all I need
You planned, you failed, the stories and telltales
(All I need)
Bad astronaut with the contagious dream
Bad astronaut, so don’t blame it on me

You're calling out my name again
I’m wondering, where have you been?
Those nights I’ve spent away from you shooting for the moon
I begged you to show me the maps and notes
I know they read, "This is where we lost the thing keeping us alive"

I’m doing fine without you
(It’s bigger than this but not bigger than me)
It’s been a while since I’ve talked to the girl who gave me, for the world
(It’s bigger than this but not bigger than me
It’s bigger than this but not bigger than me)
And don’t forget to send me a postcard from your travels
You’ve seen it
Tell me about how life ain’t worth it anymore

I’m going to map this galaxy and I will name her after things
Think of all that supported me
That’s you
That’s you

“Boys and girls in America have such a sad time together.
Society demands that they submit to sex immediately without proper preliminary talk
Not courting talk, real talk about souls
For life is holy and every moment is precious.”
