Tonight I'm so sky high
I can only see one star in the sky
Wanna get closer, put your name on it
Lift me up so I can reach it
If I do just one thing with my life
I'll get the truth for you tonight
'Cos there's more to me than my twisted side
I'll get the truth for you tonight
There are still things that I wanna do
There are still places that I wanna see
Find a hidden corner I can take you to
I've been around the world but it's seen right through me
And if I do just one thing with my life
I'll get the truth for you tonight
'Cos there's more to me than this twisted side
I'll get the truth for you tonight
If it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me
Tonight I'm so sky high
I can only see one star in the sky
Wanna get closer, put your name on it
Lift me up so I can reach it
And if I do just one thing with my life
I'll get the truth for you tonight
'Cos there's more to me than this twisted side
I'll get the truth for you tonight
If it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me

    General Commentthat's a more edgy kind of song, the lyrics are 'violently happy' (to give some credits to bjork...) and I like that. Isn't it a love song? A highly adrenaline-driven affair, or something like that? It's a rush, it's passion, it's all or nothing. I like it very much.

    General CommentTo me it sounds like the protagonist of the song is this kind of bad guy, but he genuinly (or at least he says so) is in love with this girl and he wants to prove it to her, that's why he says he wants to hang her name up upon a star. He says that even though he has a twisted side, there's more to him and he wants to show her, whatever it takes (hence the "if it kills me" part).
