She saves all of their pictures
Sits by the window in the afternoon light
The kids are all gone but it's alright
She stares at the ceiling in the middle of the night
"I wish they'd call more but it's okay"
The words never seem to come when you're far away

But I've been dreaming of a spaceship
It's going to take me out to sea
Work me over like a facelift
Erase my long term memory
Drop me off on some horizon
Where I don't speak the native tongue
Where I can worry about surviving
Beyond the wrong's I might've done

He spends his days in tall buildings
working for the weekend and a week in the spring
"I wish I saw more of the family
but sometimes it seems they'll never understand me"
"My wife's as cold as a Monday
she makes me want to fade into the darkness somedays "

But I've been dreaming of a spaceship
It's going to take me out to sea
Work me over like a facelift
Erase my long term memory
Drop me off on some horizon
Where I don't speak the native tongue
Where I can worry about surviving
Beyond the wrong's I might've done

I've been dreaming of a spaceship
It's going to take me out to sea
Work me over like a facelift
Erase my long terms memory
Drop me off on some horizon
