So Far Away Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

We say welcome to the mission
Show us all what you can do
We need a man with vision
So we put our trust in you
And now we hope sincerely
That you'll do the best that you can do

Oh, for sure it won't be easy
And we'll have to risk our lives
Some will try to break us
And cut us down to size
But just remember there can be no consolation prize
Not in our eyes

It's a long way to go
We can't wait one more day
We need someone to light up the way

We may run out of time
Can you hear what we say?
Because heaven is so far away

Although time is getting short
There's still some sand left in the glass
And now we have a living breathing
Rocket man at last
It's time to take a step
And nail our colors to the mast

No more talk of great adventures
When it's movement that we need
It must be our intention
That we never lose the lead
So count us down to zero and let's get up to speed
We're up and away

It's a long way to go
We can't wait one more day
We need someone to light up the way

We may run out of time
So believe what we say?
Because heaven is so far away

And so now they cry for justice
As if justice will be done
But the eye up in the sky
Was flying too close to the sun
The Challenger has fallen
And the race has now been run
