"Hanging On A Star" as written by George Astasio, Jason Pebworth, Geeki,, Jonathan Christopher Shave and Keisha Kerreece Fayeanne Buchanan....
Why leave me hanging on a star?
When you deem me so high
When you deem me so high
When you deem me... so high

Why leave me sailing in a sea?
When you hear me so clear
When you hear me so clear
When you hear me... so clear

Why leave me hanging on a star?
When you deem me so high
When you deem me so high
When you deem me... so high

    General CommentI think it's about someone always telling him how amazing he is, yet failing to come to him. Always leaving him dry. Alone. Though they claim to love him so. So, yes, this would fit his frustration, or rather confusion/dissapointment, over not becoming popular, as well as this could also be about a lover, or a ponential lover...

    General Commenti've associated this song with nick's frustration of never becoming popular in his time. his friends and record label were extremely supportive of him and praised his talent when, in the end, he was being heard by a large audience and remained unknown for his days.

    this song awes me.. he is a true genius.

    General CommentI have always enjoyed this song for its simplicity. Especially the way the lyrics move slightly out-of-step with the music. In other words, I love Nick's "phrasing." What does this song mean to me? Well. . . have you ever had a friend that you really wanted to have a closer relationship with. . . Someone who is always telling you just how special they think you are? Yet, for whatever reason, they don't want to have a closer relationship with YOU?

    General CommentThis is a very sad song. It is Nick saying, 'you see i need help, and yet leave me unaided', 'you can hear what i am saying, and yet don't listen', 'why love me, and not love me'. Very sad, and very true. This is one of Nick's most poignant cries for a better human nature amongst us all.

    General CommentThose who try and lift his spirits and urge him to reach out, coax him and press him, but don't really attend to his need to be understood and appreciated. He is angry that they deny him the need to feel a connection. As they try to support him or teach him to endevor for aspire to gain for himself, they ignore him while they attempt to prop up his ego. As they fail to lift his spirits they also fail to gain a posative rapore with him or , show him their natural affinity for him, or instill in him the feeling of a bond, of friendship.

    And he feels betrayal.
