On this interstellar journey

Through the infinite cosmos

Regret comes speeding past.


Out here in the vast emptiness,

Traversing glittering seas of stars

I lost track of time somewhere.


Alone in the darkness,

Searching for signs of life

I can't return empty-handed

They'll never look at me the same way again.


Love is delicate

Ephemeral and otherworldly

Ethereal and elusive

It slowly slips through my fingers.

All is lost

The mission is a failure

Just like the others before it

Time to turn the ship around

I have to stop lying to myself

Set course for home

There's nothing out here for me.
