I woke up and you were gone, I found your clothes lining the hall
I hit the light, and found you sleeping on the floor
I freaked out, you hid away
I saw the light of a new day
I was so blind, I missed you heading for the door

I'm a puppet on your hand,
I'm that string that comes unwound
Kiss my lips, and I swear I'll fall apart
I took everything you are, and I wished upon a star
And you were there, and you filled my lonely heart

And maybe I was wrong
I read your note, and wrote this song
Or maybe I'm a child in disguise?
But baby I'm a star, burning brightly in the night sky
With a billion years of fire and life
But I don't feel alive...
I felt the beating of your broken heart
And I am the one, I have your love
You are the one for me

    My InterpretationIt seems like the guy is in love with the girl although the girl is not returning the feels back.
    Throughout the song, they sleep together but the girl regrets it...
    "I woke up and you were gone" - the girl is not next to him, a sign that she doesn't feel the same when they slept together the night before, "I found your clothes lining the hall" and "I freaked out, you hid away".
    "I saw the light of a new day" The guy begins to have feelings for her.

    The chorus just shows how he feels about her.

    "and maybe i was wrong"- since she's not returning her feelings, he's doubting how he rushed in his feelings to fast.
    "But baby I'm a star, burning brightly in the night sky
    With a billion years of fire and life" - but he's young and he has never felt this way before.

    and the rest is self explanatory in the given lyrics.


    Correction on the Lyrics:
    And maybe I was wrong
    I found your note and wrote a song
    Or maybe I'm a child in disguise?
