I have to travel to Rigel to meet my love

I have to travel in my dream.

I could make the trip on the wings of a dove,

And be guided by an infra-red beam.

 

864 light years away, that's ridiculous,

What ship is there that could make such a flight

The speed would have to be tremendous;

The weight would have to be light.

 

But for my love, anything is possible,

Can my soul travel that far?

Thinking of it is horrible,

But I still have to make it to that star.

 

Even if I was invisible,

It would still take a while.

It could be disastrous and terrible,

At least I wont be fragile.

 

Rigel, bright star in Orion,

Upon the planet nearest you,

Is my love one,

Shes's my love, she's true.
