Music Monday: To The Moon And Back by Savage Garden

Music Monday

Music Monday is a meme created by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song that you really like and share it on Monday! Today it’s To The Moon And Back. Ah this song takes me back to the 90s! Does anyone else miss Savage Garden? Darren Hayes’s voice is perfection! There are three different music videos for this song: original Australian, international, and re-release extended version. I prefer the first video which is the Australian version. Let me know which version is your favourite!

She’s taking her time making up the reasons
To justify all the hurt inside, guess she knows
From the smiles and the look in their eyes
Everyone’s got a theory about the bitter one, they’re saying

Mama never loved her much and
Daddy never keeps in touch
That’s why she shies away from human affection, but
Somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she’s waiting for the right kind of pilot to come

And she’ll say to him (she’s saying)

I would fly you to the moon and back
If you’ll be, if you’ll be my baby
I’ve got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?

She can’t remember a time when she felt needed
If love was red then she was colour-blind 
All her friends, they’ve been tried for treason
And crimes that were never defined

She’s saying, love is like a barren place
And reaching out for human faith is
Is like a journey I just don’t have a map for
So baby gonna take a dive and push the shift to overdrive
Send a signal that she’s hanging all her hopes on the stars

What a pleasant dream (just saying)

I would fly you to the moon and back
If you’ll be, if you’ll be my baby
I’ve got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?

Mama never loved her much and daddy never keeps in touch
That’s why she shies away from human affection
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she’s waiting for the right kind of pilot to come

And she’ll say to him (just saying)

I would fly you to the moon and back
If you’ll be, if you’ll be my baby
I’ve got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?

I would fly you to the moon and back
If you’ll be, if you’ll be my baby
I’ve got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?
