City And Colour – ...Off By Heart lyrics

The stars are aligned, but they don't align for us
Excuse me for I am the ocean, and I will starve for you
Will you know how to stay brave?
Such fragile moments we share
You are my everything
Even with nothing to say

    My take on the song is it means ' you never choose who you are going to fall in love with, they might be filled with so many flaws they might be everything you despite yet these feelings for them are strong and self explanatory' like how it says these stars don't align for us because there's so many obsticles that don't allow you to be happy. Yet it when it says ill be the ocean who starves for you its like saying ill do anything for you. Ill sacrifice for you. If you wait for me. Pretty much to sum it up is to never lose hope on the person you fallen in love with even though to everyone it doesn't make sense why you both fell in love.
