"A few summers ago Matt, our road manager, played us 'Astronaut' - a song he had written while working at a camp in Wisconsin. We immediately loved the song and hoped to one day record it. When it came time to start making this project we put 'Astronaut' into the pile of possible songs. The four of us had seen how kids fell in love with the song after just one listen so we decided unanimously to put it on the album. It there was ever a fun, feel good, song about the love of Jesus 'Astronaut' is it."
As I look through the evening sky I think to myself How much He must love you and I The Milky Way makes me look Like a piece of dust on the road But the Milky Way is a speck of dust Compared to my Lord That's how big He is That's how big He is
And I don't know that much about astronauts But I know that Jesus cares an awful lot He made the stars He made the moon Just think of how much more He loves you
Space may be the final frontier For a lot of people who show no fear The step outside and they look around They take a sample and come back down Have they ever found the meaning of life out there I don't think so, no way I don't think so
