I will ask you this.
Can you spare a kiss?
Can you picture this coming from my lips?
A whisper from miles away.
I will send you this
And seal it with a kiss.
Can you take this lipstick and lightplay,
And carry it miles away?

I will walk 'cross the ocean
To where the sky meets the sea,
Give this ghost my devotion,
To keep you from me.

Just say goodbye.
I live, and i'll die.
Hooked on a star, enraptured by the sky,
In love with a satellite.

I can now admit I'm lost in loveliness.
Who could just resist distant beauty?
Find me if you find a way.
You may love it if you tried this detachment.
From this distance the beauty burns brightly.
It's warmer from worlds away.

Just say goodbye.
I live, and i'll die.
Hooked on a star, enraptured by the sky,
In love with a satellite.

I'll stare forever,
And love whatever breaks my heart.
Oh, oh, oh.
I'll stare forever.
And love whatever breaks my heart.
Oh, oh, oh.

Just say goodbye.
I live, and i'll die.
Hooked on a star, enraptured by the sky.

Oh!

Just say goodbye.
I live, and i'll die.
Hooked on a star, enraptured by the sky,
In love with a satellite.

(Oh, oh, oh.)

Just say (just say) goodbye.
I live (I live) and i'll die.
Hooked on a star, enraptured by the sky,
In love with a satellite.

    General CommentDespite its upbeat sound, I think the lyrics are a bit of a stab at people who are "in love" with celebrities, "stars" they can never reach, people who are beautiful from a distance but could be "ugly" up close (bad perosnality, or hidden behind too much makeup, etc). And then being heartbroken by the truth, or when a "star" has a boyfriend/girlfriend or gets married.

    I think it is the opposite perspective of "Snuff on Digital".

    General CommentTo me this song is about being in love with someone on the internet. You know you probably will never meet this person, and you don't really know who this person really is, but you love what he/she is showing to you.
    You love this situation but at the same time it hurts you -I'll stare forever and love whatever breakes my heart-
