"Dusting Down the Stars" as written by Christian Brais, Mathieu Joly, Matthew Dematteo, Dominic Viola and Francois Williamson....
I look outside from far above
I watch you sleep and dream, dream out loud
You say you wish that you could find
A guiding light, a guiding hand
A safer place to stand

We've never been so close to be so far
There's millions of reasons, there is no way out
Shall we give up so easy, shall we give up so easy

[Chorus]
Here we are dusting down the stars
Here we are dusting down the stars
Here we are dusting down the stars

Left by the roadside all alone
I turned to speak to you right there but you were gone
You stood and cried and wondered why
You can't return from where we came
Why are we born to fade away?

We've never been so close to be so far
There's millions of reasons, there's no way out
Shall we give up so easy, shall we give up so easy

Here we are dusting down the stars
Here we are dusting down the stars
As I stood outside all alone
Thought I could hear you comin' back into the fold

[Chorus]

We fall apart, we fall apart
Here we are dusting down the stars
As I stood outside all alone

I thought I heard you

    General CommentI think this is a song about a couple who recently broke up because it just wasnt working out but a part of them still wants to stay together. At the begining she's looking for a light or for a reason to stay with him. Together they dust down the stars and with that any possibility of finding any reason to stay together. It is obvious throughout the song that they still think about each other and that they still love each other but there is a million reasons that they can't be together. The millions of reasons (or stars) have all been "dusted down".

    General CommentTo me this song is about two people who are in love but because they are going in different directions things don't work out, working on a relationship that is faltering can be hard, giving up easy. A very beautiful song and the video is absolutely amazing, the white dress discarded on the grass at the end of the video is a very powerful image of hopes, dreams and love faded away to nothing.
