Far away
This ship has taken me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

Starlight
I will be chasing a starlight
Until the end of my life
I don't know if it's worth it anymore

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

My life
You electrify my life
Let's conspire to reignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive

I'll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away
Never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

Far away
This ship has taken me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

I'll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away
Never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms
I just wanted to hold

    No, it definetly is not about girlfriends, I believe you have percieved this remarkable lyric incorrectly, unless Matt Bellamy is actually addicted to his own girlfriend.

    obviously his girlfriend counts as someone who does care about him a lot, why do you think he said "people who care if I live or die"?.

    Rather this is a song dedicated to drug addicts, and its actually trying to make people realise the power drugs can have you, and the people around you.

    Nothing could ever change your world for the worse than drugs can (except health concerns and other shit).

    He also makes a reference to depressed people who feel so awful that they take drugs in a desperate attemtp to cope with pain or maybe addicted people who are so desperate for drugs, he says in his lyrics "All the souls that would die just to feel alive". Drugs have the power to change your mood, and therefore has the power to hook you.

    But he isn't the only generous artist to do this Michael Jackson created lyrics for drug addicts to, try looking at "Beat It"

    But yeah, I don't blame you for thinking it was for girlfriends. But girlfriends aren't capable of causing so much damage to Matt Belammy's life, they're just too sweet. Just Imagine, "My life", is dependent on drugs, and he is so desperate to have it.

    This is some sort of sequel to 'Sing for Absolution' - once again, it seems to be about someone traveling alone through the void of space, and clinging to the memory (?) of another person throughout.

    the song is about someone who fell in love with a girl he wants to be with for the rest of his life an he's ready to just drop everything in his life an run off with her an start a new life but he wants to make sure she'll never fall out of love with him because of the things he is ready to sacrifice for her ... great song that can really make u think how much you love an want to cherish the person u are with ( that is if you have someone ) are u ready for that leap ?
