About the song
A little demo; just me, my guitar and a creaky wooden chair.
Lyrics
I'm just another lonely exile
Gazing homeward from afar
Late one night I fell to earth
I rode shotgun on a falling star
I hit the ground hard,
It was a long and lonely ride
I woke feeling helpless,
feeling gravity tied
And stranded earthbond
Forever earthbound, my friend
Now I turn upon this terra firma
And search the sky each night
I got myself an old telescope
So I can keep you in my sight
The locals call me crazy
When I tell them about us
They shake their heads
And call me Icarus
But they can't comprehend
Just how far I've been
I just seem like one of them
Someone who has always been
Standed earthbound
Forever earthbound, my friend
I'm stranded earthbound my friend
And feeling far too heavy to pretend
Or ignore those cynics
With their science who say
That you're at least
100 billion Light years away
and the image of you that
Seems to shine so bright
Maybe just a phantom,
a trick of traveling light
This I'll never know my friend
I'll be long gone by then
These facts of matter seem
Far less important when
You're stranded earthbound
Forever earthbound, my friend
