ALPHA CENTAURI

I'm taking a ride in my starship
To planets that now wait for me
I hope to reach Alpha Centauri
Where no longer do I need flee
I love Alpha Centauri
I love Alpha Centauri
For, there I may rest
With peace in my breast
I love Alpha Centauri

I'm flying through cosmic fluctuations
That make my mind reel like a wave
But, I will reach Alpha Centauri
Though death may construe me a grave
I love Alpha Centauri
I love Alpha Centauri
For no one's as sweet
As she whom I'll meet
I love Alpha Centauri

No longer will I need to travel
To flee from the perils of space
For I have reached Alpha Centauri
Where breezes now waft my flushed face
I love Alpha Centauri
I love Alpha Centauri
For here there is peace
My traveling will cease
I've found Alpha Centauri
