"Full Of Stars" as written by and Oliver/paridjanian Knights....
I'm gonna get me a bone today
Under the big blue sky
Under the tree where my last love laid,
Now where beneath the leaves she lies
I'm gonna dig a deep hole,
Crack open this bone,
See where all the wonder went,
See where now it's all gone

Look at the light, it's full of stars
What's really happening? Something wonderful
It's not as bad as I was told,
To lose all that was loved
It's the demons who drag you down
But the angels pull you up...

Don't let the colors bring you down,
They'll get much brighter one day
You know all things must come around if you leave them in their sway
I'm gonna save it all in these photographs
Keep something here for me
When I'm dead and gone I'll have the last laugh
At what's left here to see

    General CommentSpot the 2001:A Space Odyssey reference or even 2010:Odyssey Two.....

    "Look at the light, it's full of stars
    What's really ahppening? something wonderful"

    Sounds to me like it's from the scene where David Bowman is entering the Monolith near Jupiter and says "My God, it's full of stars!" - and also when David comes back to Heywood Floyd and when asked "What's going to happen?" he simply replies, "Something wonderful!"

    General CommentI can see how the "Odyssey" reference fits, but somehow I don't think it's really relevant in the lyrics, even if it was intended. To me this song just tells a story about love & loss, and the "light" is simply an image of death or the afterlife as the narrator imagines it.

    General CommentThis song has nothing to do with 2001: A Space Odyssey. The first few lines of the song explain it all. It's a man sitting under a tree where the bones of his deceased lover are and proceeds to dig them up. A bit of a reference that this may be a song about necrophilia.
