COMMUNIQUE FROM MARS
tune: "Lemon Tree"

Long ago when I was young, I dreamed of flying high,
Of moons and stars and other things that glittered in the sky.
I dreamed of someone by my side, a hero brave and true,
He'd show me worlds I'd never seen, and give me sweet love too.

Chorus:
Saturn's rings very pretty, and Jupiter's moons are sweet
But our worlds are so far apart, it's impossible to meet.
Saturn's rings very pretty, and Jupiter's moons are sweet
But our worlds are so far apart it's impossible to meet.

I saw his face, I heard his voice, communiqu? from Mars.
I longed to hold his hand in mine and travel to the stars.
He vowed that we would meet one day; together we would stand
But space is vast and time is short and fate had other lans.

Chorus

Although we've loved, we've never met; we heed adventure's call.
On distant worlds we must remain; we cannot have it all.
A hero's life is not his own, nor a heroine's, it's true.
By honor to this life we're bound; we do what we must do.

Chorus
