Another Space Song

Scene: At the Parisian Cafe with a whole lot of Shucky Darns.

The solar panel's shining face
is smiling back on me
Twisting off into the sun
It's okay to be lonely

All my missions float away
I never trained too hard
I'm so caught up in the tree of stars
Falling in my backyard

I've got no Houston to wind down to
I've got no protocol
Gravity's so far away
Wrapped on that shrinking ball

I eclipsed my memories
Sleeping inside this pod
Patient time will carry me
On her back without a sigh

And I won't let her down
My soul is celestial bound
And if I'm never found
She'll always be.
