Track Name: Outer Space I
my love, don't go so fast
'cause feeling is fleeting
and space is vast

hey, don't go so fast
'cause feeling is fleeting
and love is vast
Track Name: I Used To Dream Of Outer Space
(it doesn't matter)
if you love me anymore
you loved me enough before
I'll keep on loving now
(it doesn't matter)
if you've kept me in your head
I'll keep you here instead
I'll keep on loving now

I know that we were young
and what you've done
is change your mind
I know that it was hard
out in the dark
to keep it alive

honey, I'll be
small enough for the
space you've made for me
honey, you'll see
I could be real quiet!
I just want to hold you one last time

I know that we were young
and what you've done
is change your mind
I know there's bigger things
and what that brings
is a million miles

I used to dream of outer space
now all I see in dreams is your face
every day
it never fades
Track Name: Johnnie
I said:

Johnnie, meet me on the other side
I want to see you when the blood has dried

(what have I done?)
I want to know about your mother's eyes
(what can I say?)
I want to know how your mother died

(what have I done?
what can I say?)
Track Name: Endless
now you've got your girl
a life to go on
now I've got work
a world to push on

do you ever think of me?
about what could've been?
you are a comfort in the black
you are what will not come back

I love you, I love her too
so I cannot regret
this world is beautiful
but I don't have time for it

I never get stuck in the past
you said, "nothing lasts."
I know you're not in the mood to speak
but baby, what did you learn from me?

what did you learn from me?

I miss you, I miss her too
but I cannot submit
this world is fucking endless
and I don't have time for it
Track Name: The Fate Of The World
I'm not sure what to say when you're miles away
but I think that I've got a grasp on it

now the fate of the world, it rests on me
but my strength is without compare
and all I wanted was to be away from home
but now I'm as alone as when I was there

I'm sorry to leave you with this mess
but I just don't think I can fix it
it turned on me so fast like lightning
and I still hear you call when I'm sleeping

we never had a moment of peace
I know you're out there looking for me
Track Name: Outer Space II
the sun will rise and fall again
and I won't say 'til I'm in your hands

all I wanted was to be free
now I got the whole world on top of me
(all I wanted was you)
am I gonna be the one to make things right?
(are you gonna be the one to say goodnight?)

I sure wish that I could be enough
well, I sure wish that I could be
enough

my love, don't go so fast
'cause feeling is fleeting
and space is vast
Track Name: Great Big Love
you deserved a greater ending
it was not what I imagined
I deserved more than one
great big love
you were right, when we were young...

you had me weak in the knees
you had me weak in the knees
I am small, so you won't let me fall
but I'll take it all

I feel your absence now like a hole in my chest
I can't heal the wound and it will not let me rest
when we were young, we could move like water
your love sang to me like a choir

you had me weak in the knees
you had me weak in the knees
I saw it all: the fight, the fall
but I'd take it all

come a little bit closer
if I could, I would do it over
Track Name: Johnnie II
you said:

I hope my father made it home
I hope to see him when I'm done
