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​

Sam's performing at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee concert tonight at Buckingham Palace for the royal family, delegates and in front of 100k+ members of the public!! How exciting - who knew Eurovision would be cool again here???

CBC News Network here in Canada just aired an interview with Sam, and I found out some interesting things about him. He was inspired by Canadian band Sum41 to follow a path towards music, and one of his earliest gigs was in the parking lot of a vegan restaurant in Burlington, Ontario (which by the way is about a 20-minute drive west of where I live). He showed that same level of enthusiasm and positivity that he displayed during ESC through that whole interview

He absolutely smashed it, shame it wasn't on the ABC broadcast tonight. Sam deserves the world and a whole lot more!

What a great performance at the Queens Jubilee Celebrations :D
I wish Sam all the best on his journey going forward. The Brits should be VERY proud of him - he deserves the world, and the world deserves him! :)

My mum's initial reaction last night was, "he's the happiest person I've ever seen"... she even thinks he could give Adam Lambert a run for his money as Queen's vocalist!!

WHAT. A. HOMECOMING. :uk:

He was brilliant and had the audience cheering throughout. Who'd have thought last year that this year our Eurovision entry would come 2nd and then sing to the queen and millions of people. Phenomenal.

'Space Man' is going to climb back into the top 5 in the UK music charts, Eurovision songs rarely have this longevity in the UK charts. Attitudes over Eurovision are definitely changing in the UK.

Not surprised after the performance on Saturday night. I just really hope that BBC Eurovision can give us some confirmation early on whether they are sticking with TaP or not, as I firmly believe that they were key to getting such a charismatic artist in the first place.

Lee Smithurst (Assistant HOD) posted he’s at the BBC for the first Eurovision 2023 meeting today. I wonder if this is about hosting?

Sam has been added to the lineup for the Capital FM Summertime Ball at Wembley Stadium on Sunday
Another enormous step in breaking the stereotype of Eurovision being something passé and "uncool" - I'm so curious to see who we get next year with the positive press and good feeling that Sam has injected back into the UK public in general for the contest... Not saying we need a big star either, but just to have the possibility would be unbelievable xheat

After Sam unconvincingly denied a few weeks ago that David Guetta had reached out to him, Sigala confirmed at Capital STB that he’s really excited about his next collab with Sam and David Guetta.

Sam's playing Eventim Apollo next year on his tour! Much bigger venue than what was previously booked...
