If I was an astronaut, I'd be floating in mid-air
And a broken heart would just belong to someone else down there
I would be the centre of my lonely universe
But I'm only human, and I'm crashing down to earth

If I was an astronaut, I'd have a bird's eye view
I'd circle 'round the world and keep on coming back to you
In my floating castle, I'd rub shoulders with the stars
But I'm only human, and I'm drifting in the dark

I'm up in space, man
Up in space, man
I've searched around the universe
Been down some black holes
There's nothing but space, man
And I want to go home

If I was an astronaut, I'd speak to satellites
My navigation systems would search for other life
But I'd be up here thinking 'bout what I'd left behind
'Cause I'm only human with the real world on my mind

I'm up in space, man
Up in space, man
I've searched around the universe
Been down some black holes
There's nothing but space, man
And I want to go home

Gravity keeps pulling me down
As long as you're on the ground, I'll stick around
Stick around
I'll stick around

I'm up in space, man
Up in space, man
I've searched around the universe
Been down some black holes
There's nothing but space, man, no
Oh, I'm in the wrong place, man
Nothing but, nothing but, nothing but space, man
Nothing but, nothing but, nothing but space, man

I've searched around the universe
Been down some black holes
Nothing but space, man
And I want to go home​

I couldn't be happier, i was so anxious all evening in the run up to the voting that we might flop. Its the UK and we just don't ever do well. I'm shaking and crying because it just means so much and I'm so happy, I'm not even a massive fan of the song but to see us do well, omggg. This is what we needed, and its what he deserved. Hes been an absolutely brilliant ambassador for the UK. To all the haters and people who said we will never do well because Europe hates us - the middle finger to you all because this just proved otherwise. BBC, whatever you did this year, repeat it next year.

I’m so happy for sam. I was not expecting second place going into the rehearsals. Tapmusic did a remarkable job. It of course is tradition for the Uk to come second especially in a year that the winners can’t host it. I’m so so so so happy.

Although 183 may not seem like a big televote. Only 5 countries didn’t vote for us in the televote. We got points from countries that we thought would never vote for us. That is amazing!!

Fun fact, Malta has by far given us more 12s than any other country this century. 12 from televotes in 2007, 2009 & 2022 and then 12 in 2016 from the jury.

Now if anyone starts talking about people not liking the UK (or because of Brexit), show them this graphic. Points from all over Europe.
