Halfway To The Stars

Wherein Phil ruins a romantic moment with science.

I've long been a fan of old jazz torch songs. Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald doing "Stars Fell On Alabama" was probably what I was listening to right before writing this. Sentimental, great melodies, all that stuff.

But I'm always a little too logical and scientifically minded when it comes to this stuff. (Honestly, if stars DID fall on Alabama it would probably do a lot of damage. A loss? That's for your to decide.)

So you can hear me do a little crooning on here and finally using that college degree in jazz guitar I worked so hard for. (After giving up on a Physics degree - And now it all starts to make sense.)


You and I could meet halfway to the stars
Where the air is thin and we'll die from lack of oxygen
You and I could meet halfway to the stars

Making love to you is like floating in space
It's really cold and I can't breathe
I should be wrapped in layers of mylar and kevlar
And gortex and nomex and fiberglass protecting my face
Cuz loving you is like floating in space.
