"Thank You Stars" as written by and Mike Batt....
Some call it faith, some call it love
Some call it guidance from above
You are the reason we found ours
So thank you stars

Some people think it's far away
Some know it's with them everyday
You are the reason we found ours
So thank you stars

There are no winds that can blow it away on the air
When they try to blow it away 's when you know it will always be there

To some it's the strength to be apart
To some it's a feeling in the heart
And when you're out there on your own, it's the way back home

There are no winds that can blow it away on the air
When they try to blow it away 's when you know it will always be there

Some call it faith, some call it love
Some call it guidance from above
You are the reason we found ours
So thank you stars
Thank you stars
Thank you stars

    General CommentSince the dawn of man, the stars have quite literally been our navigation system. But I feel there's a deeper meaning she's getting at here; it's what the stars symbolise. Us. Who we once were, and those that we will be. After all, we are comprised of the same components. In terms of physics, they are perhaps our most distant cousins and ancestry.

    That all being said, what a beautiful song about having faith in the universe; the strange confidence that something, no matter how nebulous nor unexplainable is with you. I think she puts it very well so that it can apply to any faith, any religion, any philosophy. Everything else may come to pass, erode, die away, or change, but the stars, for millennia have been steadfast and fixtures of our humanity.

    Thank you, stars.

    Song MeaningKatie Melua seems to be a christian. From Wikipedia: "She is a baptised Georgian Orthodox Christian. Whilst living in Belfast, Melua attended the Roman Catholic schools St Catherine's Primary School and Dominican College, Fortwilliam, while her younger brother attended Protestant schools."

    Singing this song she also wears a pretty noticable cross in this clip:
    youtube.com/…

    Therefore I think the meaning of this song is this:

    The song is about Jesus/God, faith, hope and love. The stars are the reason we found ours I think refers to the christmas star and the three wise men who probably were astrologers from the far east. They found baby Jesus because they watched the stary skies and discovered the christmas star which they followed to Bethlehem, so thank you stars.

    Faith, love and hope was given to all of us in the stable where God entered our world. "Guidance from above" I think refers to both the christmas star that guided them, and to the hope that is found in Jesus' promises to the world. No winds can blow it away, it will always be there.
