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

    I believe this is a beautiful song about selfless love. Although she loves this person very deeply, she is willing to let them go if it becomes clear they will be happier elsewhere. It is about doing what is best for the one you love and considering their happiness before your own.

    I honestly don't believe this is a love song. I think it can be, but I believe that this song is a parent singing to her child about how the only real reason they're there is to guide their child through life, and once that child has grown, will be ready to let them go.

    I think it's about a person who is in love but will let his/her sweatheart go if it's for the best

    I think that it is about a girl who clearly loves her sweatheart but he either doesn't love her back or she thinks he deserves better. Also that she would support him for what ever he does.

    I think it means that when you love someone, you want them to be happy but if they better off without you. You'll accept it all for their sake.
