When, when will you be landing?
When, when will you return?
Feel, feel my heart expanding
You and your alien arms

All my earthly dreams are shattered
I'm so tired, I quit
Take me forever, it doesn't matter
Deep inside of your ship

La, la, la, la, la, la, landing
Please, oh, oh, won't you return?
Feel, see your blue lights are flashing
You and your alien arms

Deep in the forest I whirl like I did as a little girl
Let my eyes rise in the sky looking for you
Oh, you know, I would go anywhere at all
'Cause no star is too far with you, with you

La, la, la, la, la, la, landing
Please, oh, oh, won't you return?
Feel, feel my heart expanding
You and your alien arms

All my earthly dreams are shattered
I'm so tired, I quit
Take me forever, it doesn't matter
Deep inside of your ship

Land, land
Oh, I am waiting for you
Oh, I am waiting for you
Oh, I am waiting for you

Waiting for you to take me up by my starry spine
Oh, oh, with your distant fingers
Oh, I'm waiting for you, waiting for you
Oh, I am waiting for you
