I really really really love space


Look up in the night
What do you see?
You say
"I see darkness"
I say
I see a vast and empty void
I see the place in which all belongs
I see the space that we fall through

Look up in the night
What do you see?
You say
"I see the moon"
I say
I see our favourite rock
I see mankind's greatest achievement
I see our route to an adventure

Look up in the night
What do you see?
You say
"I see the stars"
I say
I see light that's millions of miles away
I see light that's more ancient than we know
I see a distant place that we cannot go

Look up in the night
What do you see?
You say
"I see the planets"
I say
I see our neighbours in space
I see dead and barren worlds
I see a place to explore and travel

Look up in the night
What do you see?
You say
"I see a galaxy"
I say
I see the Andromeda Galaxy
I see our closest friend
I see something that one day may end our world

Look up in the night
What do you see?
You say
"I see stars"
I say
I see where our atoms were born
I see suns that will live and die
I see our origin and our future

Look up in the night
What do you see?
I see our life and our death
I see something vast and ancient and mysterious
I see an adventures and explorations and discoveries
I see wonder and fear
I see we are tiny and yet huge
I see our pale blue dot
I see we are children of the universe
