He's sitting waiting
Lost, thinking, deep in the night
A flash in the sky

Is it what he hopes
Is the waiting at an end
The proof he needed

No, the light is gone!
Only a lone shooting star
Not what he needed

A proven theory
Postponed without evidence
Again hopes are dashed

Are we on our own
Are others out searching
Contemplating us

Or are there just stars
His hope will not die
A flash in the sky
