If you'll be my star
I'll be your sky
You can hide underneath me and come out at night
When I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine

And you can sky-rocket away from me
And never come back if you find another galaxy
Far from here with more room to fly
Just leave me your stardust to remember you by

If you be my boat
I'll be your sea
The depth of pure blue just to probe curiosity
Ebbing and flowing and pushed by a breeze
I live to make you free
I live to make you free

But you can set sail to the west if you want to
And past the horizon till I can't even see you
Far from here where the beaches are wide
Just leave me your wake to remember you by

If you'll be my star
I'll be your sky
You can hide underneath me and come out at night
When I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine

But you can sky-rocket away from me
And never come back if you find another galaxy
Far from here with more room to fly
Just leave me your stardust to remember you by
Stardust to remember you by

    See, I got a totally different feeling from this song. I know it is meant to be a love song. But it reminds me of a Mom. A mom and her child. Right now I'm going through that faze with my mom, where I'm leaving to grow and develop in the world, and she's having a hard time letting go. But, parents have that natural instinct to allow their children to become shining stars. I think the whole living for someone who doesn't want you back thing is pathetic. I much rather prefer my vision of a mother allowing her child to leave her arms to go and become an even better person than they already are.
