"Starlight" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
Starlight, I hear you callin' out to me.
Sweet love rollin' across my mind again.
I want you, yes, I do, I need you, yes, I do.
And then you run.

You gotta stop foolin' around,
Keep your feet on the ground, little girl,
And starlight will shine all around, little girl.

Starlight, your eyes are lookin' out so far away.
Constellation in the sky is smiling down on me, I wonder, wonder why.
I can feel you're so real, I can see you're so near
And the you run.

You gotta stop foolin' around,
Keep your feet on the ground, little girl,
And starlight will shine all around, little girl.
You had me all the summer long, little girl.

Moonglow, come light the way up to my window.
As you roll across the night don't tell noby that I told you so.
I want you, yes, I do, I need you, yes, I do.
And then you run.

You gotta stop foolin' around,
Keep your feet on the ground, little girl,
And starlight will shine all around, little girl.
You had me all the summer long, little girl.

[Repeat and fade...]
Starlight, your eyes are lookin' down on me so far away.

    General CommentAWESOME SONG! "Out Of The Blue" is such a fabulous album. So many of the songs just flow into each other naturally. Many of the songs were composed in the studio after Jeff started recording the album, which is why it became a double album.

    General CommentJeff does alot of anthropormophic writing on this album: he talks to animals & whales, writes a symphony to rain & addresses sky & night formally.

    Here he personifies his love as starlight, looking first at him & then away (a star radiating in all directions). I think he draws a nice analogy on the randomness of finding a love out of everyone in the world. Yet just how special is it when you realize the same constellation shines on everyone?

    Later he makes a confession about this flighty girl to the glow of the moon, swearing it to secrecy.

    The line that's always confused in this love song me is the "you had me all summer long". Unless it's 'had' in the sense of Evil Woman, maybe saying enough is enough.
