"Rule the World" as written by Howard Paul Donald, Jason Orange, Mark Owen and Gary Barlow....
You light the skies, up above me
A star, so bright, you blind me, yeah
Don't close your eyes
Don't fade away, don't fade away, oh

Yeah, you and me, we can ride on a star
If you stay with me, girl
We can rule the world
Yeah, you and me, we can light up the sky
If you stay by my side
We can rule the world

If walls break down, I will comfort you
If angels cry, oh I'll be there for you
You've saved my soul
Don't leave me now, don't leave me now, oh

Yeah, you and me, we can ride on a star
If you stay with me, girl
We can rule the world
Yeah, you and me, we can light up the sky
If you stay by my side
We can rule the world

Oh, all the stars are coming out tonight
They're lighting up the sky tonight
For you, for you
All the stars are coming out tonight
They're lighting up the sky tonight
For you, for you, oh

Yeah, you and me, we can ride on a star
If you stay with me, girl
We can rule the world
Yeah, you and me, we can light up the sky
If you stay by my side
We can rule the world

All the stars are coming out tonight
They're lighting up the sky tonight
For you, for you
All the stars are coming out tonight
They're lighting up the sky tonight
For you, for you

All the stars are coming out tonight
They're lighting up the sky tonight
For you, for you
All the stars are coming out tonight
They're lighting up the sky tonight
For you, for you

    General CommentIn the Daily Mail it says, Stardust's director Matthew Vaughan asked Take That if they would be interested in writing a song for the film. Gary Barlow recalls: "We live near each other in London so I said: 'Come along to our place at 6 and I'll give you our answer.' Matthew came at 6 and in that time we'd composed and written a song. We played it for him and now it's going to be in the film."

    General CommentIt's *probably* a coincidence, but in the 'If angels cry, oh I’ll be there for you' line, the way he says 'if an-' sounds like Yvaine. Which is the name of the star in the film/book. I can't help hearing 'Yvaine jels cry' every time I listen -- a little annoying actually. But I still love this song, it's very pretty.

    General CommentThis is a really nice song. Heard it from the Stardust advert and thought it was great. I really like the tune and the line 'you and me we can light up the sky' it very romantic. Although the movie could have been better.

    MemoryI heard this song on the way home from hospital just after my daughter had died at 01.10am in the morning. It was the most beautiful lyrics I had ever heard.
