lyrics

Long ago, remember when
Time was slow and space was thin
And air could only barely fill our lungs
There was no up, there was no down
Just the few forgotten sounds
That kept me near to you

Floating in this vacant space
Two figures of a nascent race
Unknowing that our journey had begun
Powers we could not comprehend
Evolving to a common end
Both trying to be true

Remember when
Our love was a blue star?
Remember when
Our love took us so far?
And then the lights went out

A stellar system to ourselves
Unconscious of anyone else
We were pulling closer every day
Neither one could step aside
We knew that we would soon collide
And we’d end up apart

What was foreseen was soon to be
And the blast was to such a degree
That neither of us ever found our way
Drifting in the universe
The victims of some sacred curse
That struck us in the heart

Remember when
Our love was a blue star?
Remember when
Our love took us so far?
And then the lights went out

Remember when, after the blast
All the sadness I’d amassed
Sank me in the deepest darkest depth
You above and me below
Lying in my weepy hollow
Just trying to get through

Remember when
Our love was a blue star?
Remember when
Our love took us so far?
And then the lights went out

Ooo...ooo Oo...oo...oo
Things will be much better
Before they begin
