I tap the gauges,
confirm all systems go.
The rockets beneath me
have started to glow.
Advancing the thruster
shakes the earth down below.
A solemn fairwell
to mission control.

My mission, chase an angel down.

Adjusting the heading
I get to the chase.
The thought of you with me
starts my heart to race.
The locator beacon
is transmitting at pace
And now I’m destined
for hyperspace.

My mission, chase an angel down.

And I’m blasting through the sky.

My search for you goes past the sun into the stars of Orion’s belt,
Remember days so long ago when you and I shared how we felt.
Your electric smile and eyes of green have been engraved to my memory. I search for you. I long for you. I’ve come for you.
