"Stars" as written by Martin Kierszenbaum, Valerij Valentinovich Polienko, Alexander Voitinskiy, Ivan Nikolaevich Shapovalov and Andrei Vulih....
How did we ever go this far
You touched my hand and start the car
And for the first time in my life, I am crying
Are we in space do we we belong
Some place where no-1 calls it wrong
And like the stars who burn away
The miles

How did we ever get this far
It shouldn't have to be this hard
Now for the first time in my life am flying
Are we in love? Do we deserve
To bear the shame of this whole world
And like the night we camouflage denial

How did we ever go this far
You touched my hand and start the car
And for the first time in my life, I am crying
Are we in love? Do we deserve
To bear the shame of this whole world
And like the night we camouflage denial

    General Commentthis song is about two (hott) chicks who are friends to begin with and realize they have deeper feelings for eachother...when things start getting sexual, they start to have doubts whether what they did was right...but they leave it up to the stars................my favorite song on this EXCELLENT CD!!!!!

    General CommentI think that the song is not so much just about two girls, but really any two gay people, men or women, who have found that they are in love with someone else, and who fear what others will think. I always thought the song said "to BEAR the shame of this whole earth." this makes sense b/c they feel afraid and sad that everyone thinks that their love is wrong.

    General CommentTo me its about being in a safe place to be free and be able to do anything. Even if it's "forbidden" love and I don't mean this just in a homosexual sense. People in history have been forbidden to love each other for many reasons.

    Also, I went to a website that had the translation to the Russian Rap and it's just a bunch of random things that possibly depict all the pain and sufferring and drama they went through in life.

    So to me I liked the way this song was structured. It's like through the Russian Rap they are going through the crap of their life, struggling to be.

    And then when the soft singing starts, they are at peace and in a safe place with each other.

    Peace is not an easy feeling to find. And when you do find it, its not easy to hold onto, like a keepsake.

    Anyway, that's the way I see it.

    Know what I mean?

    General CommentIt's a beautiful tune, and I agree with your synopsis of the song.

    One correction to the lyrics though, it's
    'to BEAR the shame of this whole world' as opposed to build the shame....

    But again a great tune

    General Commenti agree with chino69. it's barely about falling in love with another girl or person, and getting into all of it. it's more about when you're already in this big mess, you wonder if it's worth it or not. and in the russian rap, more of how troubling and hard it is.

    General Commentdoes anyone know the translation of the russian rap? I would love to know what they're saying there, but I'm afraid I'm an ignorant American who was never taught any other languages other than "taco, burrito, y frijoles, por favor, gracias". anyone? anyone? T.T

    General CommentI think it's about any two people who's love is resticted not just gays and lesbians.

    General CommentI also agree with Chino69 because this is about a Forbidden love...like Crashingstar79 says not just gay people...and these lovers escaping to a place where "No one calls it wrong"
    I love this song it is amazing
    ((im not to crazy about the Russain Rap though i might be if i knew what it meant))
