Description First described as "a souped-up cousin of the Strokes' '12:51'",[3] according to Wolstenholme, "Starlight" is "kind of a love song about missing someone, friends, family, someone you love".[4] It is in the key of B major. Matt said: “Starlight” is a more personal song about what it’s like to be on the road for a long period of time – you feel like you’re losing touch with who you are, and that kind of vibe.[5] also, Matt said: "It's a pretty simple love song really. You know, well - love song - sort of missing your girlfriend type of song, you know when you've been on the road for a while and you start to feel a bit like "Cor blimey, where am I going?" It's real cheesy really, kind of like... it's from the heart. It's honest, heart-on-sleeve vibe."[6] Additional information As with several other the songs on Black Holes and Revelations, Starlight was written before the 2005 tour in the USA: "Starlight was written in the practice studio at the end of 2004. It was a simple idea, stemming from a piano impro. We wanted to keep it as simple as possible, and that was very difficult to do. Starlight had to be spontaneous, unleashing an energy that was difficult to capture. It’s influenced by The Strokes, on a drumbeat and basic bass lines. Its structure is simple, and its melodies are catchy. There’s a pop element in each of our albums, a simple bit, very melodic, like "Time Is Running Out" on Absolution. Today, Starlight is that one." — Wolstenholme[7] Starlight is played for Edmontonians of Alberta, Canada on Sonic 102.9, as well as being the opening music for the Euro 2008 Football Qualifiers coverage on Sky Sports in the UK. In Scandinavia, the song is used in the commercial of the television channel Viasat. The clapping at the beginning of "Starlight" can be written as "— ·· — ···" in Morse code, which spells out "TITS". However, this is probably a coincidence. The lyric "of the people who care if I live or die" carries a strong similarity to a lyric in The Smiths song "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now". Morrissey sings "...why do I give valuable time/to people who don't care if I live or die? As Muse has covered The Smiths previously this lyric appears to be an homage to The Smiths. Matt has stated in an interview that Starlight is his son's favourite Muse song.

Текст песни

Starlight

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

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

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations, yeah
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

Перевод песни

Свет Звезды

Далеко
Корабль унес меня далеко
От всех, кто помнил меня
И тревожился, жив я или нет

Свет звезды
Я буду мчаться за ним всю жизнь
Уже не зная, стоит ли
Так долго мчаться за ним

Просто
Держать тебя в руках
Я хотел лишь держать
Тебя в моих руках

Жизнь мою
Зажигаешь ты жизнь мою
Так давай же воспламеним
Души всех, кто бы умер только чтобы жить

Я не отпущу тебя
Только обещай мне
Не угасать
Никогда не угасать

Надежды, ожиданья
Все бездны и признанья
Провалы, откровенья
Мечты и сожаленья…
