Big Big Train – The Transit Of Venus Across The Sun Lyrics

A fault in time and place
A black drop at the edge of the Sun
The stars all clouded out
Starlight never breaking through
Here be dragons taking flight
And demons through the long nights;
The sky all fallen in
Nothing was ever the same again
[Chorus]
Set a course for the stars
Reaching out for the far things
Taking flight to the distance
Never meaning to return
Low on the horizon
The setting of the evening star
The light that guides him home
Is fading once again
[Chorus]
“Vellamo;
Alpha Regio-shtar Terra;
Beta Regio-Fufei;
Akka-thena”
So many words left unsaid
So many deeds left undone
The transit of Venus across the Sun
So many words left unsaid
So many deeds left undone
So many tales without an end
The transit of Venus across the Sun
