A new song, and the first song to ever be premiered from space.

It's a collaboration by BNL and austronaut, Chris Hadfield. It also features the 
Wexford Gleeks Choir.

These chords overall sound good, with just a couple rough spots. I tanscribed them 
by ear, so feel free to submit any corrections. Enjoy!

[Intro]
Em, D, Am, C, D

[Verse 1]
Em   D               Am
  On solid fuel and wires,
         C       D          Em
Turn the key and light the fire,
       D                Am   C   D
We're leaving Earth today.

[Verse 2]
This rocket's burning bright,
We'll soon be out of sight,
And orbiting in Space.

[Pre-Chorus]
D                 Em   
Pushed back in my seat,
            G    
Look out my window,
D          Cadd9
There goes home.
D                  Em
That ball of shiny blue,
       G         D         Cadd9    D
Houses everybody anybody ever knew.

[Chorus]
D (Let ring)   G          D
So  sing your song, I'm listening,
Am         C         Am
Out where stars are glistening,
D     Em               D                Am     C 
I can hear your voices bouncing off the Moon.
(C)  D         G       D
 If you could see our nation,
         Am   C    Am          D
From the International Space Station,
Em               D                Am 
You'd know why I want to get back soon (Get back soon).

[Verse 3]
Eighteen thousand miles an hour,
Fueled by science and solar power,
The ocean's racing past.

[Verse 4]
At half a thousand tons,
Ninety minutes, Moon to Sun,
A bullet can't go half as fast.

[Pre-Chorus]
Floating from my seat,
Look out my window,
There goes home (There goes home).
That brilliant ball of blue,
Is where I'm from and also where I'm going to.

[Chorus]
So sing your song, I'm listening,
Out where stars are glistening,
I can hear your voices bouncing off the Moon.
If you could see our nation,
From the International Space Station,
You'd know why I want to get back soon (Get back soon).

[Bridge]
Em            D                   C
All black and white just fades to gray,
          Em        D              C
Where the Sun rises sixteen times a day (Day),
Em                 D               C
You can't make out borders from up here,
       Em                D          C
Just a spinning ball within a tiny atmosphere (Atmosphere).

[Break]
(Strum each chord once)
Cadd9, D, Cadd9

[Pre-Chorus]
Pushed back in my seat,
Look out my window,
Here comes home (Home).
What once was fueled by fear,
Now has fifteen nations orbiting together here.

[Chorus]
So sing your song, I'm listening,
Out where stars are glistening,
I can hear your voices bouncing off the Moon.
If you could see our nation,
From the International Space Station,
You'd know why I want to get back soon (Get back soon),

[Outro]
You'd know why I want to get back soon (Getting back to you, getting back to you),
You'd know why I want to get back soon (Getting back to you, getting back to you),
You'd know why I want to get back soon (Getting back to you, getting back to you),
You'd know why I want to get back soon.
