"Stargazer" as written by and Jeffrey John/martin Burrows....
So you say that your heart
When it beats its like a landslide
And the word on the street from the man
It brings you down
Can you still find the time and the signs
To look around

You tell me love
Tell me where the stars sleep
Tell me why your eyes weep
I really want to know
And show me love
Take me to the place where
Everything would change there
And we'd all be free

And you place your faith in a mountain
But what you don't understand
Is that the man is
The same old rock
Can you still find the time and the signs
To look around

And tell me love
Tell me where the stars sleep
Tell me why your eyes weep
I really want to know
And show me love
Take me to the place where
Everything would change there
And we'd all be free

These are the times
When we live inside our minds
With our hands in the air
There's voices everywhere
In the slipstream
It's like a daydream
These are the days
When we're dancing through the haze
With our ears to the ground
We're searching for the sound
Of a dove's cry, but it won't be over until

You tell me love
Tell me where the stars sleep
Tell me why your eyes weep
I really want to know
And show me love
Take me to the place where
Everything would change there
And we'd all be free

I really want to know [x4]

    General CommentI don't know if I'm accurate on this one but... Jeff's first CD was Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club by the Beatles. On that CD is a song called Within You/Without You, by George Harrison... I'm sure many of you have heard it. If you haven't heard or listened to that song I suggest you do. (All you need is Love is another one.)

    Okay, so the first stanza is asking a question, on the surface its about a girl... on closer inspection it is asking the listener a question "Can you still find the time and the signs To look around" (?)

    The chorus is about a desire for knowledge, knowing about 'the other side' ; "Everything would change there And we'd all be free" - These two lines are parallels to George Harrison's composition.

    The third stanza is really cryptic. I read a quote by Pythagoras that said "A stone is frozen music." what this means is that everything is a vibration, like music. A frozen stone is just slow waves of energy. This being said, a mountain is the same as man. "And you place your faith in a mountain But what you don't understand Is that the man is The same old rock"

    The fifth and final stanza is quite blatant. "These are the times When we live inside our minds" Meditation is becoming very popular, it is the key to a higher form of being, Jeff is saying this should be the time when we live inside our minds. "In the slipstream, It's like a daydream" the higher frequencies or levels of meditation are like a slipstream or a daydream. "These are the days When we're dancing through the haze With our ears to the ground We're searching for the sound Of a dove's cry, but it won't be over until" Jeff is saying that we are now dancing through a haze, unable to see the light so we have our ears to the ground, but we only hear the cry of a dove. The cry of a dove symbolizes death, and the entire world is fighting.


    Take it or leave it, thats just what I got out of it. I mean on the surface its about a girl... but I just see more in it.

    Cheers~

    General CommentBeautiful song awesome video. To have been there to watch Jeff sing this and work his magic on the crowd at the opening concert for The Seven Circles tour was a privledge indeed. Im a Tea Party fan and Jeff Martin fangirl for life.

    As for meaning... Im not to concrete on this one

    General CommentPossibly about someone who is in love and doesn't have time for the world around them, or they don't realize that this person is not as perfect as they think "Is that the man is
    The same old rock
    Can you still find the time and the signs
    To look around"

    Hence the term Stargazer.

    General CommentClosest I could get was it about being in love with a woman who is in love with another, and doesn't notice the man who is love. Tea Party songs are often difficult to decipher.

    General CommentI think that the man's in love with a woman who's in love with a different guy, one that's nothing special and will treat her like any other man. Hence the "And you place your faith in a mountain / But what you don't understand / Is that the man is / The same old rock" and the guy who's in love with her is telling her "to look around" and see that the world has so much more to offer and she shouldn't waste her time on people who aren't worth it.
    That's what I got.

    Anyway, I love this song but it sounds so different from all of their other stuff that I've heard. More like mainstream rock, I guess. I can't exactly put my thumb on it but the song feels really different than their other stuff. The first time I heard it, I was like, "This can't be Tea Party," but then -he- started singing and I knew it was. XD His voice is so unique, no one else could sound like him.

    General Comment"Can you still find the time in the signs to look around"
    Basically asking "can you still find the time to get with it?" like, can you find the time to stop being so blinded.
    This hole song I think is about him asking this question.... What do you see in this guy?
    "And you place your faith in a mountain But what you don't understand Is that the man is The same old rock" ....he's saying this guy is dull, boring...theres nothing really great about him, he's a rock. What do you see in him?
    "Tell me why your eyes weep, I really wanna know"
    He's saying, its clear your unhappy, so why are you still with him?

    This is a shot in the dark here kids, i'm really not positive. Kick ass track, a true band. The beginning of song is amazing.
