This song is sung by Mrs. Morgan and Hawkins, as they are beginning to fall in love...or at least as Hawkins is pursuing her. Some lyrics have been changed since this recording.

Track #07. A Single Drop of Her
Sung by Will in two different time periods. It begins in the present (1849) after he has seen Fiona again after 200+ years. The second half takes place after he has fallen in love with her the first time in 1625. There is dialogue in between that is not heard on the track.
Credit: Performed by Brett M. Boles

This song is sung by Fiona. She is alone with the vial of elixir Will has given her, and she is coming to terms with her decision NOT to drink it. Instead, she will accept her imminent death and she fantasizes about becoming a shooting star so she can light up the sky for Will.
Credit: Performed by Brett M. Boles

This is a song that Fiona and Will sing together...about a recurring dream Fiona has had since childhood about a man. She doesn't know that man was Will.

Will questions his place in the universe and begins to wonder exactly how long forever may be.
