  • I always said when I'm gone
    When I'm dead
    Don't lay me down
    With the dirt on my head
    You won't need a shovel, you don't need a cold headstone
    You don't need to cry, I'm gon' be going home

    I'm waiting for my spaceship to come back to me (ooh)
    It's coming back for me
    I don't really care if you believe (ooh)
    It's coming back for me, yeah
    I been living in a lonesome galaxy (ooh)
    But in my dreams, I see
    'Em come and rescue me
    Look up in the sky and there they'll be (ooh)
    I bet you'll think of me, then
    You're gonna say, "Ooh, look at that, oh yeah, yeah"
    Damn, if it ain't true
    They're coming back for me
    They're coming back for me, yeah

    I knew from the start
    I don't belong in these parts
    There's too much hate
    There's too much hurt for this heart
    Lord knows this planet feels like a hopeless place (oh, hopeless place)
    Thank God I'm going back home to outer space (oh, outer space)

    I'm waiting for my spaceship to come back to me (ooh)
    It's coming back for me
    I don't really care if you believe (ooh)
    It's coming back for me, yeah
    I been living in a lonesome galaxy (ooh)
    But in my dreams, I see
    'Em come and rescue me
    Look up in the sky and there they'll be (ooh)
    I bet you'll think of me, then
    You're gonna say, "Ooh, look at that, oh yeah, yeah"
    Damn, if it ain't true
    They're coming back for me
    They're coming back for me, yeah

    (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
    (Ooh, ooh, ahh)

    I'm waiting for my spaceship to come back for me
    And I don't really care if you believe me
    Oh I, I have been living in a lonesome galaxy
    But in my dreams, I see them come and rescue me
    Look up in the sky and there they'll be
    I bet you'll think of me then
    Gonna say, "Ooh, look at that, oh yeah, yeah"
    And damn, if it ain't true
    They're coming back for me
    They're coming back for me, yeah

    As I leave this Earth and sail into the infinite cosmo of the universe
    The wars, the triumphs
    The beauty, and the bloodshed
    The ocean of human endeavor
    It all grows quiet, insignificant
    I'm nothing more
    Than recycled stardust and borrowed energy
    Born from a rock, spinning in the ether
    I watch my life backwards and forwards and I feel free
    Nothing is real
    Love is everything
    And I know nothing Writer/s: Andrew Pearson, Kesha Sebert, Pebe Sebert
