Need a reminder that we’re all astronauts on an Earth-shaped ship, floating through space? Here you go.
Though a closer look at the lyrics does point to this song potentially being a sadly sweet romantic fantasy about holding hands with your sweet heart while floating through space. Hopefully not lost and waiting to die.
“I will love you ’til I die, and I will love you all the time.
So please put your sweet hand in mine and float in space and drift in time.
All the time until I die, we’ll float in space, just you and I.”
Whatever this song is really about, I’ve always found it meditative, and I love the build at the end. In case you’re about to head into some kind of family holiday war zone, having something meditative to tune into might be just the defensive weapon you’re going to need.
