Track Name: Coming Out to Meet You
Coming out to meet you
Coming out to meet you

Coming out to meet you
Coming out to meet you

Coming out to meet you
Coming out to meet you

Coming out to meet you
Coming out to meet you

Verse
The last time I set eyes on you
When you walked away from me
and the very thought of meeting you again
Just makes it hard to breathe

Pre-Chorus
Oh-oooh-oh-ooh-oh

Chorus
But now you stand in front of me
there's no half measures

It's all the way

Oh-ho

Your beauty and our chemistry
Erase all those memories

It's all the way

Oh-ho

A million untold destinies
arise now in front of me

It's all the way

Oh-ho

Verse
Now the distance falls around us
As you move into my arms

And the only thought inside my spinning head
Is keeping you from harm

I'd given all I had to give
But give me one more try

I'm sure that we will make it there this time
And never say goodbye

Pre-Chorus
And the very thought of losing you again
Seems to fade into the past
and the love we have comes plainly into view
Now the die is cast
Oh-oooh-oh-ooh-oh

Chorus
All the fears and the jealousy
Recede deep inside of me

It's all the way

Oh-ho

Cos now you stand in front of me
there's no half measures

It's all the way

Oh-ho

Your beauty and our chemistry
Erase all those memories

It's all the way

Oh-ho

A million untold destinies
arise now in front of me

It's all the way

Oh-ho
Track Name: Can You Hear Me?
When you left this morning's coffee
Cold upon the floor
Talking of another's heart
As you walked through the door

A sudden sadness fell upon me
Thoughts of losing you
If you don't return again
Don't know what I will do

Now…all I'll have is
Memories of you

But if you're gone must
Carry on living, hoping

But if you're gone
I cannot get along without you

...

Can you hear me calling out to you?
Can you hear me shouting out to you?
There is nothing I would rather do
Than reverse the sands of time
To offer up a different rhyme

Stay...
Be as one with me ...
Stay...
Let us see what we can be..

...

Stay...
Be as one with me ...
Stay...
Let us see what we can be..

Say
All those words I want to hear
Masking thoughts
Never makes a path that's clear

Stay with me
Be with me
Cos love is free
Track Name: In the Face of History
Within the details of our own life
It doesn’t seem that short
But I do learn
I’m watching every day (This line doesn’t make sense here, needs a re-write)

In the Face of History
We lack the ability
To see our state of fragility
Knowing our place in the universe
We have been humbled
I guess it’s just our own curse (This line was a bit awkward to sing and phrase)

Within the details of our own life
It doesn’t seem that short
But I do learn
A kind of melancholy enlightenment
And I’m addicted to learn more
Watching the tube
I’m watching every day

In the Face of History
We lack the ability
To see our state of fragility
Knowing our place in the universe
We have been humbled
I guess it’s just our curse (Perhaps phrasing is better here)

Locked in the details of our own life (Fade and repeat)
Track Name: Vesper's End
I - Stage One
Up we go on a lightning show
Our grip upon the Earth is slipping fast
Memories, eternities quickly fade into the past

All the fleeting loves I thought would never end
All the open wounds I'll never need to mend

My eyes once were blind but now at last can see
How your beauty means so very much to me
As your gravity gives way to set us free

The gravity of Earth now sets us free

Through the clouds, concealing shrouds
For all the sins of Man's atrocities
From a speck of dust the vessels thrust meets escape velocity
As we look ahead we're mindful of the thought
We're taking with us the lessons we were taught
We face the future with lessons we were taught

We're leaving home

All the fears and the hopes of this moment
Come so clearly and bright into view
Will remembrance of those that give meaning to our lives
Be the same for those who remain

Here we are amongst the stars

II - Soul Lanterns
The world that turns below brings solace to my soul
Above a trillion stars glow so silently
The lives of loved ones are passing under me
Knowing that their passing, I will never see

The journey up ahead slides solid into view
A silence falls at the reflection of my crew
A thousand reasons, a thousand hidden fears
As weightlessness prevents the crying of our tears

We know those left behind are thinking of us all
And in the darkness I can almost hear their call

But for none of us another cold and frosty dawn
The laughter and the fun of running through a field of corn

My eyes are clouding at the memory
Their fading love now washes over me
Must look ahead and let the feelings drain from me
I know those left behind still all love me

My thoughts now stray to the thrill that lays in front of me
I am now doing what I always set out to be
In the great unknown
With some close friends at my side
Fills my mind with joy
And fills my heart with brimming pride

III - The Final Burn
All the fears and the hopes of this moment
Come so clearly and bright into view
Will remembrance of those that gave meaning to our lives
Be the same for those who remain

I've made my peace with God
I've got him right behind me
And with a button's prod
Our fate is sealed divinely

And slow but sure as sure
The engines rumble through me
I'm thrust back in my chair
I hope my faith's still with me

Fate hanging over me
Fear gripping hold of me
Feeling the final burn

Senses in overload
Leaving our Mother globe
Feeling that final burn

IV - Vespers End
As our journey takes us swiftly to its end
The memories come of those
I'll never see again
And at this fateful hour
My soul feeds on the thought
My heart beats now with love
Of a different sort

My clouding eyes take a final glimpse behind
Our pale blue planet
Recedes inside our minds
The lives and loves of those
now fade into the night
As we now embark upon this fateful flight

Whatever will be, will be
A fading memory or
A place in history
We will still be children of that distant sun

Children of that distant sun

Of that distant sun
