She's taking her time making up the reasons 
To justify all the hurt inside, guess she knows 
From the smiles and the look in their eyes
Everyone's got a theory about the bitter one, they're saying 

Mama never loved her much and
 Daddy never keeps in touch 
That's why she shies away from human affection, but
 Somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she's waiting for the right kind of pilot to come

And she'll say to him (she's saying)

I would fly you to the moon and back
If you'll be, if you'll be my baby
I've got a ticket for a world where we belong 
So would you be my baby?

She can't remember a time when she felt needed 
If love was red then she was color-blind 
All her friends, they've been tried for treason 
And crimes that were never defined

She's saying, love is like a barren place
And reaching out for human faith is
Is like a journey I just don't have a map for
So baby gonna take a dive and push the shift to overdrive 
Send a signal that she's hanging all her hopes on the stars 

What a pleasant dream (just saying)

I would fly you to the moon and back
If you'll be, if you'll be my baby
I've got a ticket for a world where we belong 
So would you be my baby?

Mama never loved her much and daddy never keeps in touch 
That's why she shies away from human affection
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she's waiting for the right kind of pilot to come

And she'll say to him (just saying)

I would fly you to the moon and back
If you'll be, if you'll be my baby
I've got a ticket for a world where we belong 
So would you be my baby?

I would fly you to the moon and back
If you'll be, if you'll be my baby
I've got a ticket for a world where we belong 
So would you be my baby?
