lyrics

One boy wants to be an astronaut, the girl with the polka dots said,
“I think that’s neat, can I ride in your spaceship?” the little boy nodded his head
He said, “Of course you can, you look the part, and I can make suits for two”
And she, “I love you and if you’ll let me come, I’ll give all I am to you”

Boy and girl take off, and several years later have kids and a family
Neither have ever been in a spaceship, but the boy still wants to be
He says, “I can look and act the part, can someone tell me why not?”
And she, “I love you, but where’s your heart? Have you been given what you’ve got?”

And I can act the very same, but I just want to stop and say

You’re pretending that the sun needs an attorney
You’re playing like the mountains need an ad or two
You’ve been telling all the lakes where to take their water
When they’ve already been told what to do

The little boy finally gets what he’s sought, the suit and ship and all
The girl is left with what he’s got, but she doesn’t want him at all
She says, “Why don’t all of my dreams come true? I’ll leave and figure out”
She changes lives and solves world hunger, and runs from all her doubts

So live your life, don’t just breathe it in
‘Cause you’ll never survive if you only take what you give

Stop pretending you’re a hired mercenary
Stop playing like you’re God’s favorite employee
Your name isn’t even written down on His payroll
There’s only One name that can be
