Charlie McCarron - A Song For Sam Bell

The moon is a lonely home
No one's been here for three long years
Three long years
But now I'm seeing things
A man walks by who looks just like me
Just like me
So welcome my friend
Wherever you came from I can't tell
If you're real or a dream
So why don't you just shake my hand

So you have a daughter
And a wife who longs for you back on Earth
Well I do, too
But you know when they come for us
Only one can go, one must stay
One must stay
We can't flip a coin
For something like this we'd need a gun
Cause to stay would be
Like suicide of your sanity

But your heart is the same
It's in the same damn place
Sounds a lot like mine as it beats away
We were born as one man
With memories of one mind
You're the same as me

I want to believe you
When you say there's a way to get us home
Get us home
But the truth is much stranger
And the suits on Earth don't want us to know
But I know
We were born as grown men
Preserved in a tank beneath our feet
And when one of us dies
Another awakes and the cycle repeats

But our hearts are the same
They're just locked away
Eternally far from our family
And the tragedy of this grand charade
our wife has been dead and her messages faked
And our daughter has grown
She never knew her father's face

If you make it back
Tell them what we know
It will ease my weary mind and give me hope
As I go
As I go...
