Once I took the universe to dinner
When she failed to yield the earth’s demands
‘Oh,’ she said ‘you mean that little ant farm?
I’m alright, dear, I’ve got other plans’

And we’re sad because we think we don’t belong here
We’re guilty ’cause we think we should be stars
Floating in a navy soup, we’re sailing
There you are
There you are

She’s so bright, and then she’s gone
Don’t mind me I’m just sailing
On a sunrise, it’s my favourite thing
And when are you going to realize
I don’t blame you, I never have

And when she talks, she fills the room with sunlight
She can name her babies, every one
I’ve returned to the place of my beginning
And I can see her turning off the sun

And we’re sad because we think we don’t belong here
We’re guilty ’cause we think we should be stars
Floating in a navy soup, we’re sailing
There you are
There you are

She’s so bright, and then she’s gone
Don’t mind me I’m just sailing
On a sunrise, it’s my favourite thing
And when are you going to realize
I don’t blame you, I never have

Universe, Sarah Slean
