Juliette Reilly – Astronaut Lyrics

You keep carnival pictures
Of us inside your wallet still
How does that feel?
You see our life in paintings, hung on the backs of your eyes at night
Isn’t that right?
We could’ve had it all
‘Cause when the comets fall
They spark for life
I’m not an astronaut in your galaxy
I’m your oxygen mask
I’m not a bottle in your stormy sea
I’m your last life raft
And you act like you don’t remember
That don’t mean you’re doing better
You need me like the Earth needs gravity
You can’t get rid of me

If I was a supernova
Would you let go; explode tonight?
Would you recognize me?
If I laid the Milky Way for us

And showed you through ten telescopes
Would you let that go?
We used to say:
“Let’s build a rocket
So when we grow we can’t stop it.”
We could fly away
I’m not an astronaut in your galaxy
I’m your oxygen mask
I’m not a bottle in your stormy sea
I’m your last life raft
And you act like you don’t remember
That don’t mean you’re doing better
You need me like the Earth needs gravity
You can’t get rid of me
[Instrumental]

I’m not an astronaut in your galaxy…
I’m not a bottle in your stormy sea…
You need me
Like the Earth needs
Gravity
You can’t get rid of me
