MISS LIBERTY

Words and Music by Anne M Carley © 1994 – 2002

This song came in from outer space.

She was just a baby Martian when their falling star touched down
They came here from outer space, stranded in a lonesome place
To the mountains high they fled
And sometimes when the stars hang low, the moon turns red
Live their lives in monochrome, still yearning for a way back home.

When she came of age the youngest sought her fortune in New York
She tried to make her way among the humans every day
She began to make some friends
Mistaken for an earthling every now and then
And in the harbor standing tall, Miss Liberty could hear her call

When you feel far from the stars, walk over to your window
And close your eyes — you’ll see Miss Liberty
She can beam you back to Mars as often as you need her
She’ll take you there a hundred times
a thousand times a million times until you’re a Martian no more.

Now that she can pass for human she continues every day
Simple moments one by one warm her up just like the sun
If on occasion she’ll forget
The evening brings Miss Liberty in silhouette
As night comes to her hometown, rock solid as the sun goes down.

When you feel far from the stars, walk over to your window
And close your eyes — you’ll see Miss Liberty
She can beam you back to Mars as often as you need her
She’ll take you there a hundred times
a thousand times a million times
She’ll take you there a hundred times
a thousand times a million times
She’ll take you there a hundred times
a thousand times a million times
Until you’re a Martian no more
Until you’re a Martian no more….
She’ll take you there…
