I tried to reach the moon
It escaped me
Surrounded by people
feeling lonely
The nature of my kind
kind of funny
I tried to count the stars
They’re elusive
The moment that I doubt
I keep drowning
The nature of the world
Still astounds me

A Space Man asked me
What I was doing
Searching for meaning
Where you find nothing.
He said, "child why are you
Grasping for stars
When they’re clearly running from you?"

I tried to reach the moon
It escaped me
I was surrounded by strangers
Who all knew me
And I think I lost my keys last night
When I got home I was locked out
So I sat on my steps calling for the Space Man
But, I don’t know why I’m chasing the wind
When it’s clearly running from me!
