  • Can anybody hear me
    Or am I talking to myself
    My mind is running empty
    In the search for someone else
    Who doesn't look right through me
    It's all just static in my head
    Can anybody tell me why
    I'm lonely like a satellite?

    'Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut
    Sending SOS from this tiny box
    And I lost all signal when I lifted off
    Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot
    Can I please come down, come down
    'Cause I'm tired of drifting round and round
    Can I please come down?

    I'm deafened by the silence
    Is it something that I've done
    I know that there are millions
    I can't be the only one who's so disconnected
    It's so different in my head
    Can anybody tell me why
    I'm lonely like a satellite?

    'Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut
    Sending SOS from this tiny box
    And I lost all signal when I lifted off
    Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot
    Can I please come down, come down
    'Cause I'm tired of drifting round and round
    Can I please come down?

    Now I lie awake and scream in a zero gravity
    And it's starting to weigh down on me, whoa
    Let's abort this mission now
    Can I please come down?

    So tonight I'm calling all astronauts
    All the lonely people that the world forgot
    If you hear my voice, come pick me up
    Are you out there?
    'Cause you're all I've got

    And tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut
    Sending SOS from this tiny box
    And I lost all signal when I lifted up
    Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot

    'Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut
    Sending SOS from this tiny box
    To the lonely people that the world forgot
    Are you out there?
    'Cause you're all I've got

    Can I please come down?
    'Cause I'm tired of drifting round and round
    (Can I please come down?) Writer/s: CHARLES-ANDRE COMEAU, JAMES LAWRENCE IRVIN, JULIAN EMERY, PIERRE BOUVIER
