"Somewhere Out There" as written by Duncan Coutts, Jeremy Taggart and Michael "raine" Maida....
Last time I talked to you
You were lonely and out of place
You were looking down on me
Lost out in space

We laid underneath the stars
Strung out and feeling brave
I watched the red orange glow
I watched you float away

Down here in the atmosphere
Garbage and city lights
You've gone to save your tired soul
You've gone to save their lives

I turned on the radio
To find you on satellite
I'm waiting for this sky to fall
I'm waiting for a sign

All we are
Is all so far

You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there

Hope you remember me
When you're home sick and need a change
I miss your purple hair
I miss the way you taste

I know you'll come back someday
On a bed of nails, I'll wait
I'm praying that you don't burn out
Or fade away

All we are
Is all so far

You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there

You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there

You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there

I know
I know
You're falling out of reach
I know

    My InterpretationNot a single Futurama fan in the audience?? Damn.

    This song always makes me think of Fry and Leela. The purple hair, all the space imagery...

    General CommentOLP is by far my favorite band of all time. It's perplexing that they arent as popular in the US. But I heard this song on the radio the other day so maybe that will change...
    It seems to have a pretty strong astronaut theme. The lyrics refer to her as if she has actually left for outer space. He
    "watched the red orange glow /watched her fade away" like a space shuttle launch. And in orbit space shuttles/stations/sattelites look like stars. Ojects in orbit also are technically falling but never get closer to the earth. He is waiting for her to come back to earth, to him. I suppose it could be literal but I think it is a metaphor. She left him for something more important, career maybe or otherwise. And she is out there doing whatever important thing(your gonna save our lives) and he is just waiting for her to finish and fall back to him.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my ex, it gives me hope that we might not be over and theres still a chance, or maybe not but I still like to hope, this song describes that feeling.

    General CommentThis song makes me feel like that there is hope for me. It's like a friend which I love dearly, and some day, hopefully, she'll realize the truth about my feelings. I just can't seem to let it shake. I guess this song makes me feel free, like when I am walking on the streets of Milwaukee, in an industral area, where all you see is the tired old buildings, still up. Like my own soul.

    Lay down your arms,
    And follow me out there.
