One Night As An Astronaut 

 

One night as an astronaut

Can redefine your life

As the lines get blurred 

And your speech gets slurred and tangles up like wires 

And you have made up your mind

Watch all that's beautiful die

 

One night by Chapala Lake

Can call to mind her attic space

As she talks to you in the slanted truth

Her green eyes burning bright

We hang like ghost tonight

Watch all that's beautiful die

 

We're always out here waiting

For something to arrive

And often we've gone missing

Like misconnectin' flights

And the airport at night is empty

So were looking towards the sky

To let all that is beautiful die

 

One night as an astronaut

Can redefine your life

As the drinks get poured and the room distorts

To colors soft and bright

You have made up your mind

Watched all that's beautiful die

 

I've tried my best to act my age

But I couldn't stomach it

I've tried so hard to dance through days

But I lack the confidence

The interstate is endless 

So we're stopping for the night

To let all that is beautiful die
