Pluto

By Scott Coe

Pluto

Mercury and Venus scorched by the sun
Planet Earth where life begun,
Planet Mars where life could be
Jupiter's spot has it's eye on me
Saturn's rings like waves on a tide
And Uranus which spins on it's side
Neptune's skies as blue as the sea
And Pluto, will always be a planet to me

It is, it's in my books
Cosmic tales from childhood
When I would read and dream of space
The wonder written on my face
Full of theories of space and time
And the number of planets was always nine

I always wear my heart on my sleeve
And in you I will always believe
Your heart guides where you want to be
And if it's right your head will agree
Courage can make a man stand tall
And love will always conquer all
The truth doesn't always set you free
But Pluto, will always be a planet to me

I'm full of passion, lust and desire
And I want to set your world on fire
I am who I am and I'll always be me
Love me as I am and you'll hold the key
I'll always be a child at heart
A hopeless romantic right from the start
You're the one I want to set me free
And Pluto, will always be a planet to me

It is, it's in my books
Cosmic tales from childhood
When I would read and dream of space
The wonder written on my face
Full of theories of space and time
And the number of planets was always nine.
