Tasmin Archer – Sleeping Satellite

I blame you for the moonlit skyAnd the dream that died with the Eagle’s flightI blame you for the moonlit nightsWhen I wonder whyAre the seas still dry?Don’t blame this sleeping satelliteDid we fly to the moon too soon?Did we squander the chance?In the rush of the raceThe reason we chase is lost in romanceAnd still we tryTo justify the wasteFor a taste of man’s greatest adventureI blame you for the moonlit skyAnd the dream that died with the Eagle’s flightI blame you for the moonlit nightsWhen I wonder whyAre the seas still dry?Don’t blame this sleeping satelliteHave we got what it takes to advance?Did we peak too soon?If the world is so greenThen why does it scream under a blue moon?We wonder whyThe Earth’s sacrificedFor the price of its greatest treasureI blame you for the moonlit skyAnd the dream that died with the Eagle’s flightI blame you for the moonlit nightsWhen I wonder whyAre the seas still dry?Don’t blame this sleeping satelliteAnd when we shoot for the starsWhat a giant stepHave we got what it takesTo carry the weight of this concept?Or pass it byLike a shot in the darkMiss the mark with a sense of adventureI blame you for the moonlit skyAnd the dream that died with the Eagle’s flightI blame you for the moonlit nightsWhen I wonder whyAre the seas still dry?Don’t blame this sleeping satellite
