recorded to 2" tape and mixed by Larry Crane at Jackpot! Recording, Portland, Oregon

lyrics

so long
so long since you've gone
and oh so far away
out in space

it's all wrong
that you could come this far
and still have nothing to say
and you can't stay

I knew just where to find you
every night
in the black sky
you're the brightest
streak of light
but now it's getting
fainter every day
always moving
farther away

comets in jars
one-way ticket to mars
billions and billions
and billions and billions
of stars

I thought
that I could make it
on my own
I thought
I'd see more clearly
alone
but now the only thing
I've ever loved
is gone
the only thing
I've ever loved
is gone

comets in jars
one-way ticket to mars
billions and billions
and billions and billions
of stars
