Song Lyric Sunday – Starlight by Muse

I posted yesterday that I’ve been really missing my daughter this week.  It probably doesn’t help that she is missing us so much.  She posts a lot of “I miss you” things on Facebook, and she even has a countdown of how many days until she comes home.  Thank goodness we only have a few weeks to wait, but it will be a short trip and I’m not sure how much I will see her since she’s coming into town for her Dad’s wedding.  I’ll take what I can get, though.

I was scrolling through my music, looking for a song to go with the theme, when I came across this one by Muse.  It made me think of Adelle almost immediately.  She is off chasing her starlight and all I really want to do is hold her and tell her how much I love her.  I also wouldn’t mind a long car ride, jamming to music and singing our hearts out.  I really miss those moments we used to have.

I love that my kids are growing older and becoming their own individual people, but it is hard to watch them leave to create a life of their own.  I’ll just have to remember the amazing times we had and look forward to the moments we will have in the future.

Muse is one of my favorite bands (I feel like I’m always saying that), and I hope you enjoy this week’s pick.

Starlight by Muse
Written by Matt Bellamy (lead singer)
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

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 ignite
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
