Lyrics:
I need to listen to my inner voice
Shipping through time and space
Don’t really have a choice
The more you hugged me
The more I felt alone
Need to find my capsule, will it ever lead me home?
Feel, feel me blue
Feel, feel me blue
“Don’t be a stranger, don’t leave me for so long”
Haven’t found a proper way to speak my mind again
“Don’t be an alien”, easy for you to say
My journey’s still ahead of me, facing an odyssey
Feel, feel me blue
Feel, feel me blue
My ship has crashed into a planet made of steel
Written off completely, now I’ll settle down and wait
The stars are glittering far away from my base
Can’t contain my tears so now I’ll let them float in space
My ship has crashed into a planet made of steel
Written off completely, now I’ll settle down and wait
The stars are glittering far away from my base
Can’t contain my tears so now I’ll let them float in space
My ship has crashed into a planet made of steel
Written off completely, now I’ll settle down and wait
The stars are glittering far away from my base
Can’t contain my tears so now I’ll let them float in space
Feel, feel me blue
