Lyrics

Once the world was split in two
You appeared, I thought you flew
Now your craft’s a starship zooming
Peaceful, like a sonic booming,
Out into some star filled stream
Where, floating in a fever dream,
You brought this home where we were grounded
Hopes pitched high and dreams unbounded.

I’ll loan you some words till you find your own
You loan me your life and we’ll call that home
I’ll hold up your bow till you hold your own.

Unpressed truth in your smooth face
Only upright, never base
Memories leave me grave and fretful
Fretless, may you stay forgetful...

I’ll loan you some words till you find your own
You loan me your life and we’ll call that home
I’ll hold up your bow till you hold your own.

Now the maestro’s still a boy
The violin a tinker toy
If I can keep out of your way
You can take this back some day
And make it say what you would say…
