I was born today a northern constellation
A minor where a major wants to be

I stacked my words, manufactured legend
And walked along the water in my sleep

'Til the news spun circles and there I saw you
Wrapped up in a New York magazine

Was that the page that tells how I was falling?
Well maybe that part is not worth mentioning

Now... what will they say?

Now... what can they do anyway, anyway?

So let me down slow, let me down real easy
Even giants have to watch how they decline

I'd will you the sky or anything else, I promise
I will until the day that I die
I will until the day that I die.

What will they say?

What's the world gonna do anyway, anyway?

    General CommentI think this song is about someone that is in love with a person and wants them to love them back. So this lover does all they can,(even the impossible), to try to win the heart of the one that they love dearly.

    General CommentNice double post, Rachel. ^_^ I have a completely different opinion about this song. I think it's about being famous, and never getting a break. 'Now, what will they say?', might refer to the press. Also, 'Wrapped up in a New York magazine', makes that sort of reference. 'Let me down slow' and 'Even giants have to watch how they decline', might refer to slowly disspearing from the radar. Not being popular anymore. Of course, I may be completely wrong. ;)

    General CommentAlso, I'm not sure about the 'I'd wheelie in the sky' part. It's hard to tell if that's what they're saying. O_O

    General CommentI'll try and get them up soon. It's hard to tell what she's saying sometimes, but I think I've got most of it understood. ;)

    General CommentI'm sure these are correct:

    "I was born today, a Northern constellation..."
    "I stacked my words, a manufactured legend..."
    "'Til the news spun circles and there I saw you..."
    "Was that the page that tells how I was falling?"

    I agree with the general precis about the rise and eventual fall of celebrities and fame; comets blazing trails across the sky.
