"Samantha In The Sky With Diamonds" - Danny Michel Matadora 2016 / Six Shooter Records
While astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti lived on the International Space Station during Expedition 42/43, I wrote this song for all the brave women and men who’ve risked their lives to help us understand this rock we live on. Big thanks to Ripley's Aquarium of Canada, adorable Grace, Jude, Wendy & Carl, Samantha Cristoforetti & Chris Hadfield

Below you borealis above you endless time You spiral through the darkness along a thin blue line Show us all the colours that light up your face We don't want to dream without you or skip to the last page
I’m digging weeds in the back yard And Samantha’s in the sky with diamonds Floating in the sea of the big stars And sinking in my horizon
In the view from above can you still see Rome? Every mother, every child, every street, everyone home Every sapphire & prison, every king overthrown Every battlefield broken-hearted love left alone Every god, every devil, every virtue and sin Everything we know on the head of a pin And this is where we make our stand
I looked for you at twilight, my telescope and eye Through every constellation, every corner of the sky We wait on for your transmission, till the dawn creeps past the moon You’re going to be home soon. We’re waiting up for you
In the silence above can you still hear the shores? All the dogs of Santiago, the machines of war? Every pope, every bishop there blocking the door That left Galileo sleeping on a cold prison floor With every star falling down crashing on him Everything we know on the head of a pin All the king's horses and all the king's men
