LyricsEdit

Stars and love burn bright
'Til they're ready to die
The broken spend their nights
Staring at the sky

You, oh you had a sad urge
To be wanted by fools
Welcoming girls that would be
Slipping, tripping
Enveloping your family jewels

You chose to grow your nose
But deep down you knew
I knew, you knew I knew
That I'd up and run
Quicker than your boys come
They said I was too good for you

Wake up little Susie
Bad news when you hear a guy cry
You spilled the beans in January
Timed it perfectly after
Your own granny died

You knew I wouldn't shoot
A man when he was down
Well done Pinocchio, you made a lie
Why would you take advantage
Of a cut up part?
You're such a vulnerable type

You said "I'm so lonely
Won't you hold me?
I'm so lonely, come close
Baby, hold me"

Love is like starlight
See it when a star dies
It continues to shine
But it's only old light, old light
It's been dead for a long time
Long time, and time, ah ah ahh

Stars and love burn bright
'Til they're ready to die
Broken spend their nights
Staring at the sky

If love enters your life
It leaves a stain inside your sky
This will lead you to believe
That it is still alive

But it is just old light
Completing its last flight
Across a velvet night
Stars burn bright

Like love bites in the sky
Love is like starlight, love is starlight

I took all our favorite songs
Played them and I made them my own
I went to our favorite bars
And I drank in them alone, woah

'Cause I've grown up a solitary soul
Sometimes I think it's better on my own
I need time just to roam, roam, roam
Find one place I can call home

Love is like starlight
Evil when the star dies
You can see it shine
But it's only old light, old light
It's been dead for a long time
Long time, long time

Stars and love burn bright
'Til they're ready to die
The broken spend their nights
Staring at the sky

If love enters your life
It leaves a mark inside your sky
This will lead you to believe
That it is still alive

But it is just old light
Completing it's last flight
Across a velvet night
Stars burn bright 'til they die
Like love bites in the sky
Love is like starlight, love is starlight
