Planets meeting face to face
One to the other cried, how sweet!
If endlessly we might embrace
The perfect union deep in space

Heaven might this once relent
And give us leave to shine as one
Our two lights here forever, one light blended

And in that longing to be one
The parting summons' sound is drawn
I see you've got to travel on
And on and on, around the sun


Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me

And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can

And no one calls us to move on
And no one forces down our eyes
And no one speaks and no one tries
No one flies around the sun

Cloudless everyday you fall
Upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise

And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you, across the sky

    General CommentThis is basically an early and unrelesed version of Echoes.
    I would love to hear it with these lyrics, they have the "Echoe-ish" feel and I think they do fit in really well. Very nice!

    General CommentYes, this was the working version. It was played at a few shows. There were going to do it on Meddle, but decided to go with an underwater theme rather than a space theme.

    General Comment^^^^^

    I believe they changed the theme because the song was rejected for usage in 2001: A Space Odyssy.

    Something about the music being too powerful and drawing attention away from the movie (wink).

    General CommentI have this song. It's got a few minor differences in lyrics than the lyrics on this site (for instance, instead of "The parting suns shine as one" it's "The parting summer's sound is gone")

    General CommentHey sorry man, I stopped coming by this place after a few weeks.
    I don't think we're allowed to blatantly share music here, but if you email me (or IM me on AIM, whichever) I'll send you the song. It was difficult to find.
