Only One

Not to belong where you are

Only One

Not to belong where you are
Where loneliness is severe
The wrong place in the wrong time
Knowing you shouldn't be here...

To have to live now is cruel
Since deep in your mind you know
You belong in some future time
Two hundred years form now, or so...

Inside wishing you were in space
Traveling to places and planets unknown
To live free in a ship through time
Whirling into eternity and beyond...

A million things in life you can have
Small and insignificant though they are
A million things are forbidden, too
One small dream - to travel the stars...

Only One (alternate)

Not to belong where you are,
Is a lonely feeling, it is.
The wrong place in the wrong time,
Knowing you really shouldn't be here.

To have to live now is cruel,
Since deep in your mind you know,
You belong in some distant future time,
Two hundred years from now, or so.

Inside you know you belong in space,
Traveling to places and planets unknown.
To live free in a ship, through time,
Whirling heading into eternity, and beyond.

A million things in life you can have,
small and insignificant though they are.
A million things, also you cannot have,
Out of this, only one I want - the stars.
