that's the opposite.  I already have the geography data.  I want a simple query that displays the longitude / latitude based on the geography data.

Yes, is just the opposite of the same function like:


DECLARE @gstring geography;
SET @gstring = geography::STLineFromText('LINESTRING(-122.360 47.656, -122.343 47.656 )' , 4326);
SELECT @gstring.STPointN(1).ToString(), @gstring.STPointN(2).ToString();
