SCARLET HILLS
tune: Greensleeves

Alas, fair ones, my time has come.
I must depart your lovely home,
Seek the bounds of this galaxy
To find what lies beyond.

Scarlet hills and amber skies,
Gentle beings with loving eyes,
All these I leave to search for a dream
That will cure the wand'rer in me.

You say it must be glamorous
For those who travel out through space.
You know not the dark, endless night
Nor the solitude we face.

Scarlet hills and amber skies,
Gentle beings with loving eyes,
All these I leave to search for a dream
That will cure the wand'rer in me.

I know not of my journey's end,
Nor the time nor toll it will have me spend
But I must see what I've never seen
And know what I've never known.

Scarlet hills and amber skies,
Gentle beings with loving eyes,
All these I leave to search for a dream
That will cure the wand'rer in me.
