lyrics

You mastered aviation, records broken, proving you the best
You passed the Rorshach, psycological, and isolation tests
You passed the medical, the centrifuge and airbourne EKGs
Matching or outperforming every man in Project Mercury

You had the right stuff but you had the wrong time
You passed the tests but you didn't get to fly

You were promised the moon
and the stars
but you didn't get that far
You were promised the sun
and the sky
but they wouldn't let you fly
You were promised a legacy worthy of fantasy
but you were prisoners of policy
You were promised a chance to show what you could do
You were promised the moon

At a time when twenty-five percent of women weren't employed
You were ready, willing, and able to launch into the void
One small step in policy is all that it would take
One giant leap in an era before the ERA

Tens of thousands of hours of documented flight time
You broke the sound barrier, but not the gender divide

You were promised the moon
and the stars
but you didn't get that far
You were promised the sun
and the sky
but they wouldn't let you fly
You were promised a legacy worthy of fantasy
but you were prisoners of policy
You were promised a chance to show what you could do
You were promised the moon
