So all my life I've dreamed of this
To get away when the door is open
I built a spaceship in the backyard
It's always pointed at the stars

No one noticed I had slipped away
I didn't wait to say goodbye
Happily I turned the engines on
And then my rocket pierced the sky

(Gravity could never hold me down)
I heard they looked for me with telescopes and soon forgot that was gone
But I'm on the beach in Mexico, only appearing at the dawn

A crowd had gathered round in curiosity
I wade through and I'm on my way
I make sure that I avert my eyes
No one uncovers my disguise

Now my days are filled with floating on the tide
I let my memory drift away
And all the little fishes they are friends of mine
I live forever every day

(Gravity could never hold me down)
I heard they looked for me with telescopes and soon forgot that was gone
But I'm on the beach in Mexico, only appearing at the dawn

But this feeling haunts me still as if my journey's just begun
Solitude has been my destination
Here I'm the only one

(Gravity could never hold me down)
I heard they looked for me with telescopes and soon forgot that was gone
But I'm on the beach in Mexico, only appearing at the dawn

I heard they looked for me with telescopes
I heard they looked for me with telescopes
