  • Between a crucifix and the Hollywood sign, we decided to get hurt
    Now there's a few things we have to burn
    Set our hearts ablaze, and every city was a gift
    And every skyline was like a kiss upon the lips
    And I was making you a wish
    In every skyline

    How big, how blue, how beautiful
    How big, how blue, how beautiful

    And meanwhile a man was falling from space
    And every day I wore your face
    Like an atmosphere around me
    The satellite beside me
    And meanwhile a man was falling from space
    As he hit the earth I left this place
    Let the atmosphere surround me
    The satellite beside me

    What are we gonna do?
    We've opened the door, now it's all coming through
    Tell me you see it too
    We opened our eyes and it's changing the view
    Oh, what are we gonna do?
    We opened the door now, it's all coming through

    How big, how blue, how (beautiful)
    How big, how blue, how (beautiful)

    And every city was a gift
    And every skyline was like a kiss upon the lips
    And I was making you a wish
    In every skyline
    And meanwhile a man was falling from space
    And every day I wore your face
    Like an atmosphere around me
    I'm happy you're beside me

    What are we gonna do?
    We've opened the door, now it's all coming through
    Tell me you see it too
    We opened our eyes and it's changing the view
    Oh, what are we gonna do?
    We opened the door now, it's all coming through

    How big, how blue, how (beautiful)
    How big, how blue, how (beautiful)
    How big, how blue, how

    So much time on the other side
    Waiting for you to wake up
    So much time on the other side
    Waiting for you to wake up
    Maybe I'll see you in another life
    If this one wasn't enough
    So much time on the other side

    How big, how blue, how (beautiful)
