  • Gonna build a rocket
    Anytime you want it
    Paint it pretty colours
    Gonna light it up and take us to the moon
    That's what I'm gonna do
    That's what I'm gonna

    Save up all the papers
    Gonna need litter
    Maybe take a minute
    To get in my head directions all the way
    You want to get away
    I'm taking you

    Through the eyes of the black hole
    And the open doors
    Through the cracks in the pavement
    In conversation

    From the top of the empire
    To a state unknown
    If I say that I'm leaving
    Just got to hang on

    'Cause we're just stars
    Tryin'a get back to where we're from
    And one by one
    We're gonna leave this planet
    So don't look back
    'Cause you know that it's all just time
    When you've got nothing on your mind
    You made it

    Somewhere in the future
    Talk about forever
    Take yourself a picture
    Waiting in the rain for a postcard from the sun
    The one that never comes
    The one that never shows
    The one that never, is building something

    From the heart of the wreckage
    In another zone
    Are we losing our balance?
    I think we've got vertigo

    From the top of the empire
    To a state unknown
    If I tell you I'm leaving
    Just got to hang on

    'Cause we're just stars
    Tryin'a get back to where we're from
    And one by one
    We're gonna leave this planet
    So don't look back
    'Cause you know that it's all just time
    When you've got nothing on your mind
    You made it

    From the top of the empire
    I think we've got vertigo

    'Cause we're just stars
    Tryin'a get back to where we're from
    And one by one
    We're gonna leave this planet
    So don't look back
    'Cause you know that it's all just time
    When you've got nothing on your mind
    You made it

    'Cause we're just stars
    Tryin'a get back to where we're from
    And one by one
    We're gonna leave this planet
    So don't look back
    'Cause you know that it's all just time
    When you've got nothing on your mind
    You made it Writer/s: BENJAMIN WEAVER, JAMIE NORTON
