Slow Comet

Slow comet
Drifting through space
No gravity, not even light
I'm on it
Smile on my face
Content not knowing if it's day or night

Forever
Circling 'round
A center I never have seen
I never
Go into town
Don't have to bother keeping myself clean

And I guess I kind of like it here
On my comet I can disappear
My only wish is that I had you near
on this

Slow comet
All by myself
As through the universe I silently sail
I've got some
Books on my shelf
And now and then I go and see the tail

Maybe someday someone passing by
Will spot me in their scope
Until that day I'll just enjoy the ride
And I'll wait, and I'll hope

Still going
Maybe we're lost
Have we seen that planet before?
There's no knowing
With fire and frost
And all that other stuff down in the core

And I gotta say I like it here
On my comet I can disappear
My only wish is that I had you near
on this

Slow comet
Drifting through space
No gravity, not even light
I'm on it
Smile on my face
Content not knowing if it's day or night
Never knowing if it's day or night
