While planet Earth sleeps

We'll float high above the clouds

Catching shooting stars

Just like finger paints

We'll carve our own constellations

Into the night sky

The people down below

Will see the shine and feel the splendor

Of our burning love

Have you ever watched the fleeting phoenix

Rise up from the ashes and take flight?

Fearless and empowered by the sun

The Milky Way seems

Nothing but a speck of dust

Guided by the wind

If you just say the word

Planet Orbulon and so much more

Will be within our reach

My life is now yours

I'll carry you across the skyline

To the edge of time

Woah (x 123456789)
