I'll take the window seat; it's just that I'm intrigued by this view from thousands of feet, and a love that carries us regardless of defeat. As we
ascend, I can't help but feel a little more at peace... I have found that I need to slow down and catch my breath, because I'm a work in progress...
Closer to the stars is where we ought to be, and I'll never arrive if you're not there with me... Don't give up on me, your love is like the sea (it's
surrounding me)... If I close one eye, take in the truth, block out the lies; will this loneliness finally die? When I fail again, please give me one last
try. Your grace is as endless as the sky... I won't look back.

    General CommentI've always wondered if this song is about a girl's love, or about the love of God or something like that. The title, "second star to the right," suggests it's a girl, because the song from peter pan, which is where the title comes from, talks about finding your true love when you go to neverland, which is "the second star to the right and straight on till morning." On the other hand, some of the lyrics in the TDAA song seem to suggest it's about God: "taking in the truth and blocking out the lies", "your grace is as endless as the sky," "ascending", and "a love that carries us regardless of defeat."

    General CommentThe beauty of music is that a song is open to the listener's interpretation. I can see the implication to God and/or religion in this song, but for some (including me) love can be an ascension, can be full of grace, engulfing you just as the sea would, etc....

    That's my not-so-humble opinion anyway.
