I can see the earth from far above
I've got the best view up here
But it's not so beautiful
I'd rather be below with you
Unfortunately I'll be forgotten here
And I've missed the last airplane
But I know that you haven't forgotten me yet

I'm floating in the fog
I'm going nowhere in particular
Please build* a big fire
So that I can find you
I'm floating in the fog
I'm hoping you're picking me up**
I am like a lonely astronaut

Weightless I fly around
The entire world underneath me
I really only want to stand on the ground
I want to go back to you
No rockets come to collect me
And in a big carriage there's no room
But I know that we'll see each other again, sometime

I'm floating in the fog
I'm going nowhere in particular
Please build a big fire
So that I can find you
I'm floating in the fog
I'm hoping you're picking me up
I am like a lonely astronaut

I'm floating in the fog
I'm going nowhere in particular
Please build a big fire
So that I can find you
I'm floating in the fog
I'm hoping you're picking me up
I am like a lonely astronaut


* - the German verb "machen" means "to make" or "to do", but here in context, it refers to building a fire

** - the German verb "auffängen" means "to pick up" as in a radio transmission
