"Stars of Leo" as written by and M. Ward....
I was born on the first day of December
That means the beginning of the end
Between the last in the line of an emotional time
And the patriarchal rash in the wind

And I'm overwhelmed at the range of emotion
I can ride in some high, lonesome sound
I get so low I need a little pick-me-up
I get so high I need a bring-me-down
I get so high I need a bring-me-down

And when I'm high above the sea of love
With the stars of Leo shining
Well, that's a long way to fall into the blue
But it's just a matter of time until I do, yeah

But now I'm under the ground in New York City
I miss the water from the wells back home
And that's exactly what the papers said would happen
If I keep boarding crowded subways alone
So I tried to surround myself with real love
You know, the kind that make them wheels go 'round
I get so low I need a little pick-me-up
I get so high I need a bring-me-down

Like when I'm high above that sea of love
With the stars of Leo shining
Well, that's the hardest way to fall into the blue
But it's just a matter of time until I do, yeah

Like when I'm high above the sea of love
With the stars of Leo shining

    General CommentThere's something going on here with contrasts. Highs/lows. City/country. December/When the Stars of Leo are shining (which I assume mean's July).

    Sometimes he's high/happy/surrounded in love, like in the middle of July in the city. But it's only a matter of time until he slips back into where he's more comfortable, the first of December, the water from the wells back home, "the blue".

    General CommentI love this verse:

    "But now I'm under the ground in New York City
    I miss the water from the wells back home
    And that's exactly what the papers said would happen
    If I keep boarding crowded subways alone
    So I tried to surround myself with real love
    You know, the kind that make them wheels go 'round
    I get so low I need a little pick-me-up
    I get so high I need a bring-me-down"

    General CommentI think this song is about a sagittarius who falls in love with a leo. Being born on the first day of december makes the narrator a sagittarius, whose best astrological match up is a leo. He is overwhelmed by the leo who causes an emotional roller coaster. He really likes the leo and feels as if he is "flying" when he is with her. He is afraid to lose the leo, "long way to fall into the blue" after flying in the "stars of leo".
    The line, "and that's exactly what the papers said would happen," could be a reference to his horoscope in the papers for that day.
