LyricsEdit

Studio version Edit

Stars and love burn bright,
Till 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,
Snoopin', troopin' enveloping your family jewels.

You chose to grow your nose,
'Cause deep down you knew I knew,
You knew I knew, that I’d up and run quicker,
than you could come
They said I was too good for you.

Wake up little Susie,
It’s bad news when you hear a guy cry.
You spilled the beans in January,
Timed it perfectly after your granny died.

You knew I wouldn’t shoot a man when he was down,
Well done Pinocchio you told a lie.
I wouldn't take advantage of a cut up heart,
You’re such a vulnerable type.

You tell me "I’m so lonely,
Won’t you hold me?"
Stars shine, only,
But it's only.

Oh, old light, it’s been dead,
For a long time, long time,
With time, time.

Stars and love burn bright,
Till they’re ready to die,
The broken spend their nights,
Staring at the sky.

Now it's time to bury the hatchet and bury it deep,
You've a massive heart but you're a fucked up kid and we sow what we reap.

Woah, 'cause we grew up a solitary souls
Sometimes it’s better to be on our own.
I need time just to roam, roam, roam,
Find a place I can call home.

Love is like starlight,
Even when a star dies.
You can see it shine,
But it’s only old light.

Oh, old light, it’s been dead,
For a long time, time,
Time, time.

Stars and love burn bright,
Till they’re ready to die.
The broken spend their nights,
Staring at the sky.

Oh, If love enters your life,
It leaves a stain inside the sky.
And 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 till they die.

Love bites in the sky,
Love is like starlight,
Love is starlight.

Give Me the Money! version Edit

Stars and love burn bright,
Till 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,
Snoopin', troopin' 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 good boys could come,
They said I was too good for you.

Wake up little Suzie,
It’s bad news when you hear a guy cry.
You spilled the beans in January,
Timed it perfectly after your 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 heart,
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 its only old light.

Oh, old light, it’s been dead,
For a long time,
Long time, with time, time.

Stars and love burn bright,
Till they’re ready to die,
The 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 it's last flight.
Across a velvet night,
Stars burn bright till they die.

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,
Even when a star dies.
You can see it shine,
But it’s only old light.

Oh, old light, it’s been dead,
For a long time,
Long time, long time.

Stars and love burn bright,
Till 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 till they die.

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