and i would trek 500 stars and i would trek 500 more
Just to be the one who trekked 1,000 stars to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.
"It’s not my place to tell the stars their order’s out of line. Nor, tell them which direction I think they ought to shine. It’s not for me to scorn the moon, when she hides herself away. Nor, direct her to the water and tell her how to sway. The sun of course, can’t hear me say, that every morning, every ray, his light’s too bright and scares away, my shadow buddies, kept at bay. My voice can’t carry all that far, to travel space and time to stars. My voice of course, it knows it’s part, to whisper to your heart."
