Here I am I'm sitting alone again I'm staring up at the sky which at this lonely moment is my only friend suddenly as I gaze upon the night I notice the stars began to shake and dance and fall into the darkness
They exploded down. I knew what I had to do. I ran up to the top of the hill and took ahold for you
The sweetest star that fell and yes I held on to it close to the numbness in my heart

And I kissed a star. I wrapped it up inside a golden bow and I ran away just to find you.
This was your gift a star that I kissed.

The galaxy that lived inside your eyes was in need of a brand new shining light.
I wished to the dark sky up above that all I had was to be captured and willingly turned over to you.
I know you better now and at this I smile. I simply gave to you the symbol of what you are to me.
You are the star that shines and explodes with light and I love and embrace all that I can.

Take this blindness away from me and let me bask inside your golden sea.
I never ever knew such simple astronomy could ever come to me by ways of the heart.

Call me to be one of those strangely dressed wise men who follow the stars to their love
You are such a perfect star to wish upon and I love you and yes I'm hopeful
Of what this lonely night may lead me into. I'm wishing upon you now.

Free me and let me indulge in my view a most beautiful you.
A keeper of starlight..

the way I feel: I'm feeling happy finally. I've no room for sorrow and I feel lit inside.
It's something I cannot hide. Oh maybe I've never felt this way before. Not for real.
Finally I feel free.

Here I am I'm sitting alone again I'm staring up at the sky which at this lonely moment is my only friend suddenly as I gaze upon the night I notice the stars began to shake and dance looks like they wanna fight
No way they were dancing. They were romancing.
Falling in love all over.

    General CommentYep. The song is freaking awesome. You can tell there was a lot of work put into it, that there was some sort of grand motivation to Jason when he was writing it. It's just beautiful as ever.

    Of course, it's comparing a person to the stars, about how they're both the most beautiful things he could ever look at. And how they cast light upon his "lonely life." But that's an obvious meaning.

    My favorite line^

    I think this may be the cutest song I've heard.

    Mraz is brilliant. The lyrics are so pure and perfect. How I'd love to be the one that song's about...

    General CommentActually, Jason didn't write this song. His friend wrote it and Jason took it and turned it into a song.
