Lyrics

Just Past the Milky Way

Written By: Blu Sanders

I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT TIME TRAVELLIN'
BUT THERE'S GOT TO BE A WAY I CAN SEE YOUR FACE AGAIN
SOMETHING I CAN TRY TO END THIS MISERY
CAUSE LOVIN LIKE THAT NEEDS MORE THAN A MEMORY

MAYBE I READ IT OR HEARD IT SOMEWHERE
IT'S JUST A THEORY BUT I DON'T CARE

THEY SAY YOU CAN FOLLOW THE LIGHT PAST THE MOON
WHEN YOU SEE THE RINGS OF SATURN YOU'LL BE THERE SOON
TAKE A LEFT TURN AT ORION'S BELT
THEN YOU'RE GETTIN CLOSER, IF YOU CAN'T TELL
JUST PAST THE MILKY WAY IF YOU TURN AROUND
YOU'LL SEE YESTERDAY

THINKIN BOUT THE TIME WHEN I HELD YOU IN MY ARMS
WALKING DOWN SHAVANO CREEK ON YOUR DADDY'S FARM
BABY I AINT EVEN SURE JUST WHY I LEFT
JUST ADD IT TO THE BOTTOM OF LIST OF THINGS I'LL ALWAYS REGRET

I KNOW I'LL NEVER GET ONE MORE CHANCE
BUT I WOULD SETTLE FOR JUST ONE GLANCE

THEY SAY YOU CAN FOLLOW THE LIGHT PAST THE MOON
WHEN YOU SEE THE RINGS OF SATURN YOU'LL BE THERE SOON
TAKE A LEFT TURN AT ORION'S BELT
THEN YOU'RE GETTIN CLOSER, IF YOU CAN'T TELL
JUST PAST THE MILKY WAY IF YOU TURN AROUND
YOU'LL SEE YESTERDAY

I'M GONNA FLY TONIGHT
FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF LIGHT
STRAIGHT INTO THE BLACK
I DON'T KNOW I'LL EVER COME BACK
HOPE I STAY ON TRACK

THEY SAY YOU CAN FOLLOW THE LIGHT PAST THE MOON
WHEN YOU SEE THE RINGS OF SATURN YOU'LL BE THERE SOON
TAKE A LEFT TURN AT ORION'S BELT
THEN YOU'RE GETTIN CLOSER, IF YOU CAN'T TELL
THE FURTHER YOU GO THE MORE YOU SEE
EVERY SINGLE MINUTE, EVERY LITTLE THING
JUST PAST THE MILKY WAY
IF YOU TURN AROUND
JUST TURN AROUND
THERE'S YESTERDAY

Look at the Moon

Written By: Blu Sanders

IT AIN’T EASY
A LONG DISTANCE LOVE AFFAIR
EVERY TIME I TURN AROUND
YOU’RE NOT THERE

LOOK IN THE REAR VIEW
WATCH YOU WATCH ME DRIVE AWAY
FEELS LIKE THE MILLIONTH TIME
I GO AND YOU STAY

WE’VE BEEN LIVING ON MEMORIES AND PHOTOGRAPHS
HERE’S A LITTLE SOMETHING ELSE TO HELP MAKE US LAST

IF YOU FEEL A LITTLE LONELY
WONDERING WHERE I AM
OUT THERE PLAYING MUSIC
IN THIS ROCK N ROLL BAND
IF YOUR HEART IS FEELING HOPELESS
WISHING I WOULD BE HOME SOON
JUST STEP UP TO THE WINDOW DARLING
LOOK AT THE MOON

TALKING TO SUPERNOVAS, COUNTING SATELLITES WATCHING THE MILKY WAY
ANYTHING TO PASS THE TIME
KEEP YOUR LETTER IN MY POCKET
SIGNED, I’M YOURS AND YOU’RE MINE

I’M GETTING CLOSER
I CAN SMELL THE SWEET SUCCESS
BUT I KNOW IF IT NEVER COMES
YOU WON’T LOVE ME ANY LESS

THE TWO OF US ARE KEEPING STRONG YEAR AFTER YEAR
ROGER WATERS SAID IT BEST, I JUST WISH YOU WERE HERE

WHEN I FEEL A LITTLE LONELY
WONDERING IF I CAN
KEEP ON PLAYING MUSIC
IN THIS ROCK N ROLL BAND
WHEN MY HEART IS FEELING HOPELESS
I KNOW YOU ARE LOOKING TOO
I JUST STEP UP TO THE WINDOW
AND LOOK AT THE MOON

LOOK AT THE MOON
SHINING THROUGH THE WINDOW IN YOUR BEDROOM
LOOK AT THE STARS
LIKE A SILVER BED OF ROSES
A DOOR THAT NEVER CLOSES
A ROAD MAP TO MY HEART

I WOULDN’T TRADE THE EMPTY BEDS OR THE SACRIFICE
I’VE LOVED YOU ONCE
AND HONEY I’D DO IT TWICE

IF YOU FEEL A LITTLE LONELY
WONDERING WHERE I AM
OUT THERE MAKING MUSIC
IN THIS ROCK N ROLL BAND
IF YOUR HEART IS FEELING HELPLESS
WISHING I WOULD BE HOME SOON
JUST STEP UP TO THE WINDOW DARLING
RIGHT UP TO THE BIG WIDE OPEN STRAIGHT FROM ME TO YOU
LOOK AT THE MOON
LOOK AT THE MOON
