Tree of Stars

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

She’ll always be what I can’t find
She’ll always be where I break down
She’ll always hide behind a star
I’ll always dream she can’t be far

I’ve got no Houston to whine 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
Her soul is celestial-bound
And if I’m never found
She’ll always be

When you talk to me, I swear to God it’s like the sun is shining directly on me in the depths of midnight.
