about

I wrote this song because seeing the classic Who serial "The Mind Robber" made me imagine kids watching it when it aired and having some feelings they maybe weren't ready to feel, and because we don't have enough representation for queer kids in the media. This single is the result of an incredible amount of hard work on behalf of my collaborator and producer Alan Lastufka, and the rest of the Spiders From Gallifrey!

lyrics

It was the fall of 1968
and I was 13 years old
Sitting by the telly on a Saturday night
Waiting for a world to unfold
Full of spacemen and monsters, adventure galore
And a girl who was just like me
Suddenly danger erupted and I
Jumped behind the sofa so I wouldn't see

She and Jamie clung to the console
spinning through nothing at all
As the camera revolved around
my jaw dropped the floor
Because I saw

Zoe's Silver Spacesuit
I'm sure I shouldn't feel the way that I do
But her button nose is so cute
Zoe, could I love you?

She was so clever, so smart and so rare
She was all I wanted to be
Nobody else could ever compare
To the girl from Station W3
Oh I couldn't tell my friends, I couldn't tell my mum
Nobody would understand me
How my feelings could be so strong
For that girl from the 21st century

If only the Doctor would visit me
and take me through space and time
There's only one place that I'd want to go
The year 2000 would suit me fine

Jamie's nice but he's just a boy
she was so much more
As the console revolved around
my jaw dropped to the floor
When I saw

Zoe's Silver Spacesuit
I'm sure I shouldn't feel the way that I do
But her button nose is so cute
Zoe, could I love you?

Zoe's Silver Spacesuit
I shouldn't feel the way I do
But her button nose is so cute
Zoe, could I love
Zoe, could I love
Zoe, could I love you?
