1,000 Light Years Away
Recorded on March 11, 2010 for the aborted Welcome 2 America album; later released as a coda to "Black Muse," the 10th track on the album HITnRUN phase two (December 12, 2015). Written by Prince.

 
Ooh oh
Oh yeah, oh

Now that I got ur attention
I think it's about time I mention
The reason why I wrote this song
Like a UFO sighting
From my heart I am writing
The next close encounter, tell me how long?
Will it b on land or near the water?
Mmm, will it produce the sun or the black moon daughter?
Or a pillow covered with all our tears?
1000 light years away from here
1000 light years from here...
1000 light years away from here
1000 light years from here... (Oh yeah)

No yesterday or 2morrow
No better remedy 4 sorrow
And why the 5th held 4ever will make U cry
I don't know why

1000 light years from here
1000 light years from here

Well, 2 unbroken circles joined 2gether make a butterfly
Little darling, don't U wanna try? (I wanna try)
There ain't nothin' better than lookin' 4 me (Lookin' 4 me 2)
And seeing U (Seeing me)
Seeing U n the mirror 1000 light years away from here
Why do we always seem so far away?
When U know that I really wanna b with U night and day
I'm runnin' out of ways 2 say how
So I think I'll just close 4 now
