"Stars" as written by and Nathan D/leone Leone....
We walk past a dead end street
To the top of a hill so we can be alone.
Under the moon it's beautiful.
The stars clear the black of night when I?m with you.
And nervously I take your hands
And promise you I'll take you for a ride.
And someday we'll have it all, you and me we're gonna be stars
We?ll runaway from everything you hate,
Runaway to everything you've wanted
Take my hand let's get famous.
We'll runaway from everything you've fought
Runaway to everything you've loved
Take my hand lets get famous

I?m amazed how things can change.
How the real world can chase our dreams away.
How did you give up so easily?
'cause I?d rather make them bury me... so let's
Runaway from everything you hate,
Runaway to everything you've wanted
Take my hand let's get famous.
We'll runaway from everything you've fought
Runaway to everything you've loved
Take my hand lets get famous.

Our names in lights across the sky,
It's beautiful and our whole lives
Will be headlines across the whole world...
I can't let you live, you're just a ghost
And I'm feeling sick inside my head.
You won't feel a thing, I'll cover up your eyes
As I bury you
And now I bury this under drowning eyes
And I'll carry it till the day I die

We'll run away from everything you've had
Run away to everything you've wanted
Take my hand let's get famous
We'll run away from everything you've fought
Run away to everything you've loved
Take my hand let's get famous

    General CommentThis is a really beautiful song. Unfortunately, the lyrics here aren't completely accurate and I think some are missing.

    Here is my take on the meaning of the lyrics:

    This song is about someone who is in love with another person who is troubled, who has been burned. But this person makes them happy (the stars clear the black of night when I'm with you)... and they in turn want to take this person away and show them happiness and everything they ever wanted.

    The song isn't literal -- he isn't talking about being famous like a celebrity. He is equating the concept of being like the stars in the sky -- the stars that clear the black of night -- to being a "star" (famous). It is an interesting play on words.

    General Comment^^I don't know. On ML's myspace there was a news article that said "That's just the thing about Madina Lake. Everyone wants to be famous." Unless that line, and this song is a coincidence, I do think it's literal.

    Whoever this guy is, it's obvious he and Adalia want to escape Madina Lake. I think Adalia wants to get famous, literally, and this guy is just trying to make her feel better.

    General Commentbut adalia already is famous, in the town of madina lake. considering its after Pandora on the CD, hes talking to pandora. she seems like the type to want attention, and shes suckered this guy into helping her get it... ie; killing adalia....

    General CommentDoesn't this song have something like:
    "i can't let you live,
    you're just a ghost
    and i'm feeling sick inside my head"

    I'm sure there is.
    Or maybe it's there, and i can't see it.

    General CommentTHESE ARE THE ACTUAL LYRICS!!!!!!!!

    Stars
    ------Madina Lake

    We walk past a dead end street
    Atop the hill so we can be alone.
    Under the moon it's beautiful.
    The stars clear the black of night when I’m with you.
    And nervously I take your hands
    and promise you I'll take you for a ride...
    "... and someday we'll have it all, you and me, we're gonna be stars"

    We’ll runaway from everything you hate,
    Runaway to everything you've wanted
    Take my hand, let's get famous.
    We'll runaway from everything you've fought
    Runaway to everything you've loved
    Take my hand, let's get famous.

    I’m amazed how things can change.
    How the real world can chase our dreams away.
    How did you give up so easily?
    'Cause I’d rather make them bury me... so let's

    Runaway from everything you hate,
    Runaway to everything you've wanted
    Take my hand, let's get famous.
    We'll runaway from everything you've fought
    Runaway to everything you've loved
    Take my hand, let's get famous

    Our names in lights across the sky,
    It's beautiful and our whole lives
    Will be headlines across the whole world...

    I can't let you live, you're just a ghost
    And I'm feeling sick inside my head.
    You won't feel a thing
    I'll cover up your eyes as I bury you.
    I know I bury this under drowning eyes,
    And I'll carry it till the day I die.

    We'll runaway from everything you hate,
    Runaway to everything you've wanted
    Take my hand, let's get famous.
    We'll runaway from everything you've fought
    Runaway to everything you've loved
    Take my hand, let's get famous

    General CommentThis is such a powerful song...

    I think that this is about two teenagers in Madina Lake. The girl is Adalia. And as others said - she wants to be famous, not only in the little town.

    We walk past a dead end street
    Atop the hill so we can be alone.
    Under the moon it's beautiful.
    The stars clear the black of night when I’m with you.
    And nervously I take your hands
    and promise you I'll take you for a ride...
    "... and someday we'll have it all, you and me, we're gonna be stars"

    They're sneaking out of town, perhaps. Both go to the top of the hill - there Adalia sees the last of Madina Lake. He's nervous because he know what he's going to do to her. But he convinces her that they're running away, he's telling her such pretty words...

    We’ll runaway from everything you hate,
    Runaway to everything you've wanted
    Take my hand, let's get famous.
    We'll runaway from everything you've fought
    Runaway to everything you've loved
    Take my hand, let's get famous.

    She's already too sure that they're going to leave it all behind. It sounds like she had some problems there. She just needed that little push to do it. They're running to the bright lights... the stars.

    I’m amazed how things can change.
    How the real world can chase our dreams away.
    How did you give up so easily?
    'Cause I’d rather make them bury me... so let's

    Maybe she senced that something isn't right. He's getting worried and askes her if she is too afraid. Did the real world scared her dreams away from her?
    No time to give up now...

    Our names in lights across the sky,
    It's beautiful and our whole lives
    Will be headlines across the whole world...

    He's making it all up to sound like a dream... like reality. She believes him desperately.

    I can't let you live, you're just a ghost
    And I'm feeling sick inside my head.
    You won't feel a thing
    I'll cover up your eyes as I bury you.
    I know I bury this under drowning eyes,
    And I'll carry it till the day I die.

    He kills her...
    She can't live with that dream - he won't let her.
    But he feels guilt and says to himself that she won't feel the pain.
    He's hiding her body in water... Maybe that's why the kids are searchin her there in "Here I Stand". She's gone in the water with her dream of immortality... She really wanted to be famous...

    Well, that's MY opinion
