Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

The Pulsar

This song was created for Game of Bands round 219 : "Space Shanties"

Lyrics:

I'll soon be off, adventure grand
My spacesuit on, ticket in hand
Two-hundred-eighty light-years off today

Counting down from 10 to 1
Goodbye to them, the moon and sun
For soon I'm off, to my love far away

Off through galaxies and endless stars
Faster-than-light traveling into your arms

85 parsecs to the pulsar
And 85 parsecs to you
There ain't no matter dark enough
To tear our love in two

Outside the window's like a dream
Amazing sights that I have seen
But nothing that could ever step to you

Matter strange and novas bright
Covered by multicolored light
All this wonder just to cut right through

Through wormholes and cutting through space-time
Through nebulae and galactic rime

42 parsecs to the pulsar
And 42 parsecs to you
There ain't no black hole strong enough
To tear our love in two

The quest for science is eternal
But this one thing is true
It's 42 parsecs to the Pulsar
And 42 parsecs to you

Ladies and gentlemen, the Captain has activated the warp speed initiative. We are now entering warp speed. Please return your seats and hold onto your handlebars.
Here we go!!!!

The flashing star slowly closing in
I'll soon see the love of my life again

Just one more parsec to the pulsar
And one more parsec to you
There ain't no warp speed fast enough
To tear our love in two

Love may be a mystery
But this one thing is true
I'm closing in on the Pulsar
And Darling, I love you
[Exit]
