Starlight

Lyrics

Far away
This ship has taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

Starlight
I will be chasing your starlight
Until the end of my life
I don't know if it's worth it anymore

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

My life
You electrify my life
Let's conspire to re-ignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive

But I'll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away
Never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

Far away
This ship has taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

And I'll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away
Never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

I just wanted to hold

Extra information

Meaning

“Its more of a personal one, it came out of being on the road so long on support of the last album.”



Chris: Starlight was written in the practice studio at the end of 2004. It was a simple idea, stemming from a piano impro. We wanted to keep it as simple as possible, and that was very difficult to do. Starlight had to be spontaneous, unleashing an energy that was difficult to capture. It’s influenced by The Strokes, on a drumbeat and basic bass lines. Its structure is simple, and its melodies are catchy. There’s a pop element in each of our albums, a simple bit, very melodic, like Time Is Running Out on Absolution. Today, Starlight is that one. (from: musewiki.org)



It was written with a real boat in mind.
