"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
