Left his heart on another planet
& he knew just what to do.
Got to build himself a rocket,
try to make his way back to you.
He hasn’t got the right materials
& he doesn’t have a clue.
At this rate he’s going to reach you
by the year 4032.
But he’s working with a smile
& his heart is beating true.
Made the hull from old cans,
held together with super glue.
He’s teaching himself rocket science,
& blueprints, he’s got a few.
It’s not the perfect plan
but his heart says “Follow through”.
Going to fly right past Mars,
take some time to admire the view.
Then he’ll dock down beside you,
return to love that he once knew.
