Three Million Light Years

From three million light years away
I saw your face, I saw your face
Not like the physical, more like the whimsical
In outer space, in outer space
You take me and you touch me, and I know you’ll never leave 
Because you’re real, you are too real
Electricity beckons me, fills me up, invigorates me
I’ve got a buzz, you are my buzz
You got me singin’ indie songs to tunes I never tried before
You are my muse, little hipster muse
The world is whipping by outside, we don’t have time to die
So step on right up, get in the groove
If you could hear my voice right now, I’d sound like Janis Joplin now
I am possessed, I am possessed
When you close your lovely eyes, life keeps movin’ and intrudin’, oh
So be alert, play in the dirt
You’re a pixie on a prairie, up atop the clouds of majesty
The way you move, gets me to move
You’re a demon with a halo and a harp that plays tornadoes, babe
So play on, send me a storm
You are a thunderclap within a tap by fingers on a steering wheel
You go boom, and I follow along
From anywhere in any land, I can smell your faerie dust and wow
It takes me, decompresses me
I know that we’re a far cry from some typical notion of love
But this is right, this is all right
So call out to me from the abyss, or from jail or the apocalypse
And I’ll come to you, I’ll come for you
It isn’t hard to summon me, it isn’t hard to count on me
Just be true, and we’ll get through
