  1. Where have I known you before
    Where did we play among galaxies bright
    Laughing and dancing, creating each night
    Deciding the course, to then venture on out
    Love, you, space and I
    Free from fear, free from doubt
    Where have I known you before
  2. Where have I hurt you before
    Where did I hurt you so deep - so deep
    To hear you say you knew me not
    When you alone could save me there
    And free me from that tyrant's keep
    Defender of the Vulcan worlds
    Where filled my mind with blackened sleep
    Where have I hurt you before
  3. Where have I loved you before
    Was it just yesterday
    Or millennia ago
    I kissed, touched, held and needed you so
    Your face is so different
    Yet you, you're you, just you
    Still glowing and silvery bright
    Wondrous dancingly bright
    I knew you the moment you entered my room
    That infinite eternal night
    Where have I loved you before
  4. Where did I lose you before
    Was it when you gave your life
    To save that pharaoh king
    Or when our golden mothership took flight
    Far away from Saturn's rings
    Was it when we made the pact
    Then drifted into violet space
    So certain we would meet the other side
    But there was no such place
    Where did I lose you before
  5. Where have I known you before
    The moment I saw you I knew
    I had found again the singer of a
    Thousand songs
    That haunted every dream
    The painter of the colors of my mind
    Reminding me of places we had been
    I'm seeing clearer now - the truth unfolds
    The past all drifts away
    You're back again my dearest friend
    You never went away
