starlight lyrics – rachael yamagata

“starlight”

i couldn’t see a thing tonight,
not one star.
not one star has shone for you.
i couldn’t see a thing tonight,
not one star.
not one star has shone for you.
i couldn’t see a thing tonight,
not one star.
not one star has shone for you.
i couldn’t see a thing tonight,
not one star.
not one star has shone for you.
i add a little candlelight to get through.

oh, i couldn’t see the moon tonight,
not one wave.
not one wave was out for you.
no, i couldn’t see the pale moonlight,
not one part.
not one wave was coming through.
and i’m terrified to look outside,
cause i need you.

starlight makes it all the same.
no light and i feel the pain.
starlight makes it all a game with you, baby.
starlight and i feel the same.
missed flight on this aeroplane.
i’d jump from a moving train,
just to keep you.
would you do it for me?

oh, i couldn’t see the sky tonight,
not one star.
not one star has shone for you.
yeah, i had a real hard time tonight.
i still feel your breath.
oh my love i hold for you.
and i think that i’ve been holding out,
to hold onto.
and i’m terrified to look outside,
cause i need you.

something about you is like,
drinking a cold gl*ss of water.
everyone needs a place to go to sometimes.
something about you is like,
going against mother nature.
and i decide to face her every time.

starlight makes it all the same.
no light and i feel the pain.
starlight makes it all a game with you, baby.
starlight and i feel the same.
missed flight on this aeroplane.
i’d jump from a moving train,
just to keep you.
would you do it for me?

as i watch you walk across the street,
i keep wondering why i can’t leave.
all the heavens are against me and you.
do you even know a thing ’bout me?
do you even think about my needs?
cause i need you.

i couldn’t see a thing tonight,
not one star.
not one star was out for you.
