"Sunrise Number 1" - lyrics (click to open)

Sunrise Number 1

Time to wake up and see the first sunrise
There’ll be fifteen more
Aurora Borealis lights up the horizon
Clouds swirl below

And we don’t care ‘bout rain or shine
When you’re in space the weather’s fine

Blue blue earthshine against a yellow moonshine
Such a sight to behold
Blood orange sunset fades into night lights
Cities etched in gold

And we don’t care ‘bout rain or shine
When you’re in space the weather’s fine

Soon we’ll sail back to our blue marble
Soon we’ll be getting back to normal

Now we don’t care ‘bout rain or shine
When you’re in space the weather’s fine
