"Voyager Reprise" as written by and John Paul/schwarz Pitts....
I can't go out 'cause I'm sick with myself
Leave it to me, up to me to feel sorry
I can't wrap my head around you
Somewhere out there four walls surround you
I can't go now 'cause I don't know how

Oh, oh oh

Oh Carl and Ann had a love affair
Making a soundtrack for another planet to hear
Oh a gold disk moves like a meteor shower
Thirty-five thousand miles an hour
Heaven is a strange place like outer space

You've got nothing, got nothing to hide
I've got a lot of things that I keep down inside
Oh but looking with you at the constellations
Even with my coating of insulation
I can't wait now, I don't even wanna know how

No, I can't say no
I won't say no
I can't say no
I can't let go
Oh no
Oh, oh oh

    Lyric CorrectionI tried to listen to the "love affair" line over and over and I still am stumped, like you. But I believe that the line "Oh girl this moves like a meteor shower" is actually "Oh a gold disk moves like a meteor shower", referring to the gold record that is mounted on the Voyager probe.

    And the second unknown word is "coating" I believe, so it's "Even with my coating of insulation", I suppose referring to the way he hides his emotions maybe?

    And the last stanza is

    "No, I can't say no.
    I won't say no.
    I can't say no.
    I can't let go..."

    But good job on the rest, and thanks! I just submitted the lyrics for Miranda but there is one or two words/lines that I just cannot manage to decipher, so maybe you could help me out on that one.

    General Commenti agree with previous the previous comment regarding the "coating of insulation" and "oh gold disk..." lines.

    could the first line of the second verse be: "oh Carol and Dan had a love affair"?

    maybe i'll need to buy the vinyl EP to actually get the lyrics sheet.

    Lyric CorrectionOh my god! Finally I have unraveled this mystery that has been bothering me since I first heard it! The line about the love affair, it's "Oh (or old) Carl and Ann had a love affair..."

    Carl Sagan was actually responsible for the contents that went on the gold record that was attached to the Voyager spacecraft, and his wife was Ann Druyan who also wrote about his work and helped with his show "Cosmos". It's a bit of a stretch but that's my best guess. And the husband-wife thing would make the "love affair" line make sense.
