Valley on Mars (2021)

hovering over a valley on Mars
serenely contemplating the stars
hovering, floating, flying high
watching Deimos in the sky

the Earth and the Moon so far away
the Sun now set on a Martian day
Jupiter brighter than ever I've seen
if I wasn't awake I'd be in a dream

hovering over a valley on Mars
serenely contemplating the stars
enjoying each breath each time I inhale
enjoying this chance to tell you this tale

of a journey so far, so near as well
flying on Mars is something to tell
something to do, something to see
I am so happy that you are with me

hovering over a valley on Mars
serenely contemplating the stars
Uranus and Saturn above in the sky
with you by my side so warm and nearby

heaven on Earth could never be
like heaven on Mars when blissfully
floating above while drifting along
so far away from the din and the throng

of the cities of Earth where we were born
from which we have left, from which we've been torn
flung into space, propelled through the deep
now dreaming awake this vision to keep

hovering over a valley on Mars
serenely contemplating the stars
hovering, floating, flying high
you in my heart so close and nearby

heaven on Earth could never be
like heaven on Mars when blissfully
floating above while drifting along
feeling your love while singing this song

hovering over a valley on Mars
serenely contemplating the stars
hovering, floating, flying high
watching Deimos in the sky

the Earth and the Moon so far away
the Sun now set on a Martian day
Jupiter brighter than ever I've seen
if I wasn't awake I'd be in a dream
