In the distance light years from tomorrow
Far beyond yesterday
She is watching, heart aching with sorrow
She is broken, as she waits
Hoping when all is said and done we learn to love and be as one

Chorus

Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we're gonna make it right before tomorrow
Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we’re gonna find a place where we belong (where we belong)
And so you know, you’ll never shine alone

There are shadows sleeping on the horizon
Leave us scared and so afraid
As the fallout of a world divided
It brings her tears and so much pain
So we take cover from the dark
Hoping to find where we can start

Chorus

Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we're gonna make it right before tomorrow
Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we’re gonna find a place where we belong (where we belong)
And so you know, you’ll never shine alone
Starlight we’ll find a place where we belong (we belong)

You will see as the mountains fall and turn to dust
And there’s one thing that won’t change
I believe there is something within each of us that always stays
That will always remain as long as love never fades

Chorus

Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we're gonna make it right before tomorrow
Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we’re gonna find a place where we belong (where we belong)
And so you know, you’ll never shine alone
Starlight we’ll find a place where we belong (we belong)

She is watching, heart aching with sorrow
She is broken, as she waits

    I think this song is about two people that love each other so much but are having trouble between them and it hurts them a lot.
    "I believe there is something within each of us that always stays
    That will always remain as long as love never fades"
    That part made tears come out of my eyes because my gf and I just broke up. This part says that there is a feeling between those two people, and that feeling will be there as long as they keep loving each other.

    I think it means that there is so far for humanity to go and that there is a better way, to share, to tolerate, to love, to be humane and that the choice is ours. We can choose to be better, or we can choose to watch the mountains turn to dust.
    If we choose the light and not the dark, choose love instead of hate and choose our collective good and not our own selfish needs then we can shine!

    I think this song is about the universe or our cosmic mother watching all the pain and suffering from across the veil. Watching all the pain, all the sorrow, all the suffering that goes on in the world, waiting for us to learn. But while she watches her heart aches for us and with us. But all she's doing is waiting for us to become one with her and eliminate all of the pain and sorrow we cause each other.
    Starlight (a light beyond our sun, or beyond our reach) don't you cry we're gonna make it right before tomorrow. (the writer of the song is making progressive steps in their life to be positive today, not tomorrow, before tomorrow. Overall it's a song of sadness, change, and overall. Hope.
