Planet Earth, my home, my place,
A capricious anomaly in the sea of space,
Planet Earth, are you just
Floating by, a cloud of dust,
A minor globe, about to bust,
A piece of metal bound to rust,
A speck of matter in a mindless void,
A lonely spaceship, a large asteroid.

Cold as a rock without a hue,
Held together with a bit of glue,
Something tells me this isn't true.
You are my sweetheart, soft and blue.
Do you care, have you a part
In the deepest emotions of my own heart,
Tender with breezes, caressing and whole,
Alive with music, haunting my soul.

In my veins I've felt the mystery
Of corridors of time, books of history,
Life songs of ages throbbing in my blood
Have danced the rhythm of the tide and flood.
Your misty clouds, your electric storm
Were turbulent tempests in my own form.
I've licked the salt, the bitter, the sweet
Of every encounter, of passion, of heat.
Your riotous color, your fragrance, your taste
Have thrilled my senses beyond all haste.
In your beauty, I've known the how
Of timeless bliss, this moment of now.

Planet Earth are you just
Floating by, a cloud of dust,
A minor globe, about to bust,
A piece of metal bound to rust.
A speck of matter in a mindless void.
A lonely spaceship, a large asteroid.

Cold as a rock without a hue,
 Held together with a bit of glue,
Something tells me this isn't true.
You are my sweetheart, gentle and blue.
Do you care, have you a part
In the deepest emotions of my own heart,
Tender with breezes, caressing and whole,
Alive with music, haunting my soul.

Planet Earth, gentle and blue,
With all my heart, I love you.
