Lyrics
Big dipper north of nowhere
Outside the room inside my mind
I look forward to tomorrow
But can I leave yesterday behind
How it feels so strange
To have grown and change
Now it's not the same
Coz time slips and slides into another place
And try as we might to understand each other
Doesn't really matter where you are
It always seems so very far
It's like you're lightyears away
You're lightyears away from me

Little dipper south of somewhere
It looks much closer than it really is
I held it in my hands
But you're forever out of reach
Far as the eye can see
Nothing is meant to be
Doesn't mean much to me
But ohhh, if I only had a rocketship to fly
I'd be right there in a minute
But it doesn't really matter where you are
However near is still so far
Coz you're lightyears away
You're lightyears away from me
Far is the eyes cant see
Nothing is meant to be
Doesn't mean much to me

But time slips and slides into another place
And try as we might to understand each other
Doesn't really matter where you are
It always seems so very far
It's like you're lightyears away
You're lightyears away from me

I look forward to tomorrow
But can I leave yesterday behind
