about

The song is about the ESA astronaut, Captain Samantha Cristoforetti who actually holds the records for longest single space flight by a woman and for the longest uninterrupted spaceflight of a European astronaut. She is also the first Italian woman in space (cit. Wikipedia).
The title "Astro Girl" is a homage to her nickname "Astro Samantha".
The story tells about her childhood dream to one day explore space and depicts in a colorful way her adventure on board the ISS while conducting experiments, taking beautiful pictures of the Earth, reading poems and sharing her stories on social media about this amazing journey.

lyrics

ASTRO GIRL

Back in time with my memories
when stars were far and dreams were big
I was longing to explore the outer space most unknown

Distant skies, my destiny
Burning desire, infinity
I was ready to go
3,2,1 ignite lift off!

Higher much higher I'm leaving now much lighter
Closer much closer to the stars
I'm turning around a world I once dreamed
defying physics, gravity and fear

Now I'm here, up above
I watch the amazing wonders of the Earth
New frontiers, a brand new goal
All the vastness of the Space is worth
1 light year or a thousand more
time to travel far beyond
any limit in and out us All
Over now!
Yours truly Astro Girl


Rhymes from space I share with thee
in this lonely place I plant the seed
of understanding and love
For generations to come

Higher much higher I'm feeling now much lighter
Closer much closer to the stars
I'm turning around the world I once dreamed
The sky is not the limit, All is Real!


Now I'm here, up above
I watch the amazing wonders of the Earth
New frontiers, a brand new goal
All the vastness of the Space is worth
1 light year or a thousand more
time to travel far beyond
any limit in and out us All
Over now!
Yours truly Astro Girl
