Track Name: I Don't Know
I don't know what I want
I don't know what I need
All I know is us

You're the one thing I'm sure of
After so many years
It always comes back to me and you

But what I wouldn't give to let go of you
What I wouldn't give to be able to live without you
What I wouldn't give to say, Sam, just pack your things and go
I don't know

I don't know what I want, dammit
I don't know what I need
I don't know how to let you fly

Could I live without you?
I'd rather not try
Sam, you're all I've got in the world

But what I wouldn't give for you to have a normal life
What I wouldn't give to give you law school, a house, and a wife
What I wouldn't give to say, Sam, I'm fine here on my own
I don't know

I don't know what I want
I don't know what I need
All I know is family
Track Name: Everybody Lives
You can't run forever
No matter how hard you try
It's a race with time - through time
Though you know everybody dies.

But when the sky is clear
And the wind is right
And the Doctor comes to call
It's a blessed day
One in a million
No one dies at all.

He remembers every one of them
Though they left him long ago
Just a madman with a big blue box
Always ending up alone.

But when the sky is clear
And the wind is right
And the Doctor comes to call
It's a blessed day
One in a million
No one dies at all.

No one knows better than the Doctor
All lives must end
He's seen ages and ages pass him by
And he has lost every friend he's ever known
He's always known.

But when the sky is clear
And the wind is right
And the Doctor comes to call
It's a blessed day
One in a million
No one dies at all.

'Cause everybody lives
Just this once
Everybody lives
There is a light in the sky today
Everybody lives
Oh everybody lives
Just this once, Rose
Everybody lives
Just this once they all are saved
Everybody lives.

It's a race with time - through time
When the Doctor comes to call
Track Name: Never Homeless
You were the wayward sons of an absent father
Grew up on the road with only your brother and your car for company
The devil don't care what kind of car you drive
And sometimes it's all you can do to barely survive

And though you'd lay your head on a motel pillow at night
And though you feared the lives you saved weren't worth the fight
You live and learn and you try to see, though the ending's never easy
But you were never homeless, because family's where you're home

Sometimes you'd have a day - you could go anywhere
Stars above you and road ahead, silence is the only sound you hear
So what was the point of it all? It's hard to say
But I think that you did all right, 'cause at the end of the day

Though you'd lay your head on a motel pillow at night
And though you feared the lives you saved weren't worth the fight
You live and learn and you try to see, though the ending's never easy
But you were never homeless, because family's where you're home

You made your own choice, and that's all you can really do
Up against angels and demons, you did what you had to
You fight the war and you play the game, though you know that there's a price
When God himself is against you, you make the sacrifice.
Track Name: Be My Vulcan Lover
You say you've got no emotion, but I know that can't be true
'Cuz I see the way you look at me when you think I can't see you
Just put your hand in mine and we'll kiss all night long
Oh, why won't you

Be my Vulcan lover
Don't you raise an eyebrow at me
Just be my Vulcan lover
I think your pointy ears are sexy
Be my Vulcan lover
If you don't believe me, try a mindmeld and I think you'll see
That I really want you
To be my Vulcan lover

I'll help you out every seven years when it's time to go through pon farr
We won't have to take you to Vulcan when your behavior gets bizarre
Your higher body temperature will keep me warm at night
Oh, why won't you

Be my Vulcan lover
Don't you raise an eyebrow at me
Just be my Vulcan lover
I think your pointy ears are sexy
Be my Vulcan lover
If you don't believe me, try a mindmeld and I think you'll see
That I really want you
To be my Vulcan lover

You'll say it's illogical, I know
But I can't get over this simple feeling
And even though my heart isn't in quite the same place as yours
It still beats for you

Be my Vulcan lover
Don't you raise an eyebrow at me
Just be my Vulcan lover
I think your pointy ears are sexy
Be my Vulcan lover
If you don't believe me, try a mindmeld and I think you'll see
That I really want you
To be my Vulcan lover

Track Name: A Memory and Prayer
The days seem like lifetimes, a lifetime without you

When will you return to your home and mine?

The hours of my waking slip ceaselessly by

When will you return?

When will you return?



I go through the motions as if I am living

But today, as before, I feel so alone

These rooms are so empty without your sweet light

When will you return?

When will you return?



Daily I watch, daily I wait

Fear in my eyes as the door stays closed

Daily I watch, daily I wait

Every face turned away could be yours



The days seem like lifetimes, a lifetime without you

You’ll never return to this place we called home

Not meant for forever, I still hold out hope

When will you return?

When will you return?



With each day that passes, the road takes you further

A memory and prayer are all that remain

To your vanishing presence I say my goodbyes

When will you return?

When will you return?
Track Name: For You
I've never been too good at putting my thoughts into words
Nothing seems to come out like I mean it to
But all the same, I thought I'd give it a try
Just to tell you that I really like you

You don't know it yet, but this song's for you
'Cause I love everything that makes you who you are
And I don't know how to tell you
So I thought I'd put it in a song
You don't know it yet, but this song's for you

I know that you're not perfect, but to me you're pretty close
You can always brighten up what starts off as a cloudy day
I'm not sure how to let you know that maybe I want
To be more than just friends; would that be okay?

You don't know it yet, but this song's for you
'Cause I love everything that makes you who you are
And I don't know how to tell you
So I thought I'd put it in a song
You don't know it yet, but this song's for you

And I want to be the one who holds you close
When you feel like no one understands where you're coming from
And I want to be the one who gets to kiss you standing in the rain
When we don't give a damn what anyone thinks of us
I don't give a damn what anyone thinks of us

You don't know it yet, but this song's for you
'Cause I love everything that makes you who you are
And I don't know how to tell you
So I thought I'd put it in a song
You don't know it yet, but this song's for you
Track Name: Red Shirt's Lament
He said phasers set to stun, and I'm gonna do my best
Though I'm just a lowly security officer
I've been doing just fine on this five-year mission
And I know that I can handle whatever comes
But we beam down to the planet
And there's phaser fire all around us
And I seem to be the only casualty

Expendable? Is that all I am to you?
Do I really have to die to show this planet's dangerous?
Expendable? I don't even have a name
I guess I should have known when they gave me a red shirt
I was doomed

I was killed by Gary Mitchell with his psychic powers
I was eaten by a salt vampire
I was pushed over a cliff by an enormous, ugly android
I was killed by a creature called a Gorn
The bridge crew is invincible
But I'm not impervious
To the deadly creatures we meet out there

Expendable? Is that all I am to you?
Do I really have to die to show this planet's dangerous?
Expendable? I don't even have a name
I guess I should have known when they gave me a red shirt
I was doomed

And maybe someday they'll remember
All of us who gave our lives on Starfleet's behalf
And they'll raise a monument
And on that monument
"He's dead, Jim" will be my epitaph

Expendable? Is that all I am to you?
Do I really have to die to show this planet's dangerous?
Expendable? I don't even have a name
I guess I should have known when they gave me a red shirt
I was doomed
Track Name: Full Fathom Five
Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell:
Ding-dong.
Hark! now I hear them—Ding-dong, bell.
Track Name: Where the Bee Sucks
Where the bee sucks, there suck I:
In a cowslip’s bell I lie;
There I couch when owls do cry.
On the bat’s back I do fly
After summer merrily.
Merrily, merrily shall I live now
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.
