Story behind the song
NASA and the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab are about to launch an audacious mission to fly a spacecraft through the Sun's corona. It will literally touch the sun. Someone had to write a song about it.
With permission of the Parker Solar Probe project at JHU-APL, we've tried to capture the excitement of this epic journey. She's been described as the coolest, hottest mission ever.

Verse 1: Dm C
On a steamy morn, We say farewell
She’ll face the fire, like a trip through hell
Standing poised and tall as the time draws near
The tension grows but she shows no fear
PreChorus 1: Bb A7
She’s the coolest you have ever seen
The bravest there has ever been
Chorus: Dm C Dm A7
Touch the Sun; Come on, Let’s Touch the Sun
Dm C A7 Dm
Touch the Sun; Time now to Touch the Sun
Verse 2: Dm C
Venus whispers along the way
“Better raise your shield to his deadly rays”
In an epic dance with our fiery king
Gazing at his crown she begins to sing.
PreChorus 2: Bb A7
She’s the hottest you have ever seen
The fastest there has ever been.
Chorus: Instrumental Verse: Chorus 2X and Coda
Coda: A7 Dm A7 Dm
Come on, Let’s Touch the Sun, Come on, Let’s Touch the Sun
A7 Dm C Bb Dm
Come on, Let’s Touch the Sun
