Sleeping at Last - Venus

[Verse 1]
The night sky once ruled my imagination
Now I turn the dials with careful calculation
After a while, I thought I'd never find you
I convinced myself that I would never find you
When suddenly I saw you

[Verse 2]
At first I thought you were a constellation
I made a map of your stars and I had a revelation:
You're as beautiful as endless
You're the universe I'm helpless in
An astronomer at my best
When I throw away the measurements

[Chorus]
Like a telescope
I will pull you so close
Till no space lies in between

[Post-Chorus]
And suddenly I see you
Suddenly I see you

[Bridge]
I was a billion little pieces
Till you pulled me into focus
Astronomy in reverse
It was me who was discovered
A billion little pieces
(Like a telescope)
You pulled me into focus
(I will pull you so close)
Astronomy in reverse
(Till no space lies in between)
It was me who was discovered
[Chorus]
(A billion little pieces)
Like a telescope
(You pulled me into focus)
I will pull you so close
(Astronomy in reverse)
Till no space lies in between
(It was me who was discovered)
(A billion little pieces)
Like a telescope
(You pulled me into focus)
I will pull you so close
(Astronomy in reverse)
Till no space lies in between

[Post-Chorus]
Then suddenly I see you
Suddenly I see you

“Venus” is the third track of the Atlas: Space 1 EP. Writer Ryan O'Neal explained the song’s vision: "Named after the goddess of love, I had to write a love song. Sung from the perspective of an Astronomer (myself being the most novice one ever), I wrote this as a long song for my wife."
