There's something in your eyes
Is everything alright
You look up to the sky
You long for something more, darling
Give me your right hand
I think I understand
Follow me and you will never have to wish again

I know that after tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars, no-no-no-no
I know by the end of tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars
And I know if the love is alright
You don't have to look up at the stars, no-no-no-no
I know by the end of tonight you don't have to look about the stars
No-no-no-no-no-no-no-no, no...

Tell me how you feel
And if I'm getting near
I'll tell you where to steer
You tell me where to steer, da-da-b-da-darling
Way above the clouds
And high above the stars
Through the unknown black holes
No one knows where we are
Ba-but, return to earth and do it all over again

'Cause I know that after tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars, no-no-no-no
I know by the end of tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars
And I know if the love is alright
You don't have to look up at the stars, no-no-no-no
I know by the end of tonight you don't have to look about the stars

A-come away with me
Oh, fly away with me
Just for one night no one will ever know, no-no-no, darling
I will leave you satisfied
Forever past time
You don't have to hide
You're free to fly

I know that after tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars, no-no-no-no
I know by the end of tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars
And I know if the love is alright
You don't have to look up at the stars, no-no-no-no
I know by the end of tonight you don't have to look up at the stars

I know that after tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars, no-no-no-no
I know by the end of tonight
You don't have to look up at the stars
And I know if the love is alright
You don't have to look up at the stars, no-no-no-no
I know by the end of tonight we're looking down upon them from heaven.

[Outro Freestyle]

    to me id have to say this is talkin about wantin love from the person you longing for. someone who youve loved and your just telling them love me and youll have no worries.. its just about saying love me chose me and i will make it work..i will make you wishes come true. then it goes into talkin about..ill tell you where to go (in the relationship) and youll tell me where to go. (meaning that its a give and take relationship) working out their problems together.. then starts to talk about saying pick me and we can "fly" together. Then saying if your with me your needs are and will be satisfied forever, just chose me and life will be good when u chose me.

    Although songs have different interpretation depending on the amount of thought put into it by each person, I think Justin's meanings are deeper than meets the eye, or ears in this case. The damsel in distress wants more than her life has to offer, so she wishes upon the stars for something better. Justin explains that with him her life won't be full of the hurt that she's been through. That she won't have to keep going through it all alone. That when it's all said and done she'll be the one that looks down at the people who are wishing upon her stars.

    its this dude just looking out for his girl. he wants to be there for her, but he doesnt want her to feel like he's all up in her business or suffocating her. he wants her to know that he loves her and will always be there for her.
