lyrics

You shine like an evening star
I heard that you're doing better
Still, you're a world away

So I watch you from afar
I know I will reach you on some fortunate day
Still, you're a world away

I fly higher than a million mountains
But only in my dreams
So I stare into the dusty air 'til the end of the day
Still, you're a world away

I'm ready to trade orange in for blue
To feel gravity's pull; it's true that I am ready to pay
You're only a world away

I'll fly higher than a million mountains
Eyes fixed upon the queen
I know that we will be together one fortunate day
Still, you're a world away

All of my life, I've heard the stories
And I've looked to the stars
All of my life, I've watched you from Mars

Sitting at the foot of the Olympus Mons
By this time tomorrow, I'll be gone
Pale blue marble with a swirl of white
I'm gonna dream of you tonight!
