lyrics

Circling the earth in free rotation
High in the atmosphere
Space walking, space stations
We're all alone out here
Now is the time to kiss and roll over,
Lying awake at night

Above the curve of Mother Earth
Lock into orbit now
Over the oceans and rolling tundra
Pillows of nimbus spread out beneath us
We gravitate...

Won't you come home with me - why should we stay here?
What will become of us - where shall we go?
Who will look after us - when we get older?
Who'll be here when we're gone - how shall we know?
Now is the time to kiss and roll over
Lying awake at night

Meeting up together
In a way we never do on earth (We never meet this way)
Meeting up together
In a way we never do on earth (The way we do in heaven)

Won't you come home with me - why should we stay here?
What will become of us - where shall we go?
Who will look after us - when we get older?
Who'll be here when we're gone - how shall we know?
Now is the time to kiss and roll over
Lying awake at night
