Aloft (How Far Will This Go)

HOW FAR WILL THIS GO

LEAVING THIS WORLD BEHIND US

HOW FAR WILL THIS GO

LEAVING THIS WORLD BEHIND US

HOW FAR WILL THIS GO

LEAVING THIS WORLD

 

THESE BRIGHT STARS

HOW DIM THEY SEEM

WHICH LIGHT YOUR MASK

SO FAIR AND SO PURE

THE SWEET, THE SWEET VOYEUR

SOARING HIGH BETWEEN YOUR BREATHS

WITHIN YOUR EYES A SWEET UNREST

THE COLDEST WIND OPENS THE SAILS

LEFT ALONE WITH TILTED SCALES

HOW FAR WILL THIS GO

LEAVING THIS WORLD BEHIND US

HOW FAR WILL THIS GO

LEAVING THIS WORLD

OH, THE SPLENDOUR OF THIS VIEW

GAZING DOWN AT THE DARKEST BLUE

WOULD IT FAIL YOU TWICE TO DISAPPEAR HERE

ALOFT YOUR WORLD WITH ALL IT'S CLUES

 

GLIDE YOUR SMILE UNTO MY VISIONS

SWEET GUM SCENTS THAT STILL LINGER 

AWAKE I AM IN THIS PURE MESS

WE'LL FLY FOREVER OR DESCEND TO DEATH

 

HOW FAR WILL THIS GO

LEAVING THIS WORLD BEHIND US

HOW FAR WILL THIS GO

LEAVING THIS WORLD

 

LEAVE IT NOW, LIKE POCKET CHANGE

OR HIDE WITHIN, PROTECT WHAT STILL REMAINS

SEND LIGHT FROM STARS, ILLUMINATE THE CURE

THEN REST MY DEAR, MY SWEET VOYEUR
