"Stars" as written by Oliver David Sim, Romy Anna Madley Croft, James Thomas Smith and Baria Qureshi....
I can give it all on the first date
I don't have to exist outside this place
And dear know that I can change

But if stars, shouldn't shine
By the very first time
Then dear it's fine, so fine by me
'Cos we can give it time
So much time
With me

And I can draw the line on the first date
I'll let you cross it
Let you take every line I've got
When the time gets late

But if stars, shouldn't shine
By the very first time
Then dear it's fine, so fine by me
'Cos we can give it time
So much time
With me

[Repeat x2]
If you want me
Let me know
Where do you wanna go
No need for talking
I already know
If you want me
Why go

I can give it all on the first date
I don't have to exist outside this place
And dear know that I can change

[Repeat x2]
But if stars, shouldn't shine
By the very first time
Then dear it's fine, so fine by me
'Cos we can give it time
So much time
With me

    My InterpretationThis song sounds like sex feels when you're in love.

    Song MeaningAs soon as I heard this song, I related to it.

    I read it as getting physical with someone the first time you go out with them, and not caring OR expecting it to go anywhere after that. But being open to the possibility.

    If things do progress, "we can give it so much time," even if "stars shouldn't shine by the very first time." From the girls' perspective, she draws these "lines" that she'll let him cross (she doesn't want to give it up and sleep with him in theory, but when it gets down to it she gives it up). She understands that it might not go anywhere after that, but they have time to see if there is a possibility.

    Something like that, anyway. I like Rasio's idea of this song as a statement of the band, as well.

    General CommentInterestingly placed on the album (as the last song). A duality? the lyrics being about whoever they're about, but also a statement for the band as a whole? "If you saw some promise in this album but it wasn't still rough around the edges, give us time"

    General CommentNo pressure, don't rush, this feels right so we can take every step as fast or als slowly as we want.

    General CommentI think this song is simply about being attractive to someone and questioning if crossing the line on the first date is appropriate. No pressure environment. I won't get mad if we don't get intimate but, if you want to then we can. Hence, "But if stars, shouldn't shine, By the very first time, Then dear it's fine, so fine by me, 'Cos we can give it time. And not letting clouded stipulations (giving it up on the first date) getting in the way of how you really feel. Hence, "If you want me then why go?"

    I honestly love the song and can't take it off repeat. Very sensual without being raunchy. Awesome group, their voices are amazing. Not to mention the album, it's gold.

    My InterpretationFirstly: It's beautiful song.


    For me is one of the most magnicicent songs about sex, I've ever heard. We're livin' in sexually liberated times. Sometimes I'd like to believe that there are people for who sex is someting more than physical experience, that feelings just matters. That's I love the song.

    To my mind the idea of song is truly simple.

    "I can give it all on the first date" person which describe feelings in song says that he's ready to be close with his love. But he can just wait ("Cos we can give it time") if for the one one he love it just isn't proper time. It's because he belives this love is eternal. And indestructive. He just believes.

    General Commenti like when they both sing "where do you wanna go" together

    General CommentI like to imagine two people who knew each other for a long time but just admitted that they have feelings for each other. They feel like there's a deep connection and whatever happens in the present is almost irrelevant because they both feel the same way.

    They're willing to give the other person whatever he/she wants. Both of them can be satisfied whether or not they hook up right away. There's this idea that going too fast at the beginning might not be good in the long run, and there's really no rush. But that's just something people say; it doesn't necessarily have to apply to the two of them (so they think). And even if things don't last or go sour, they will still have that moment/place and they can move on/change.

    They both kinda want to give it up, but they still want the relationship to last, so they ask each other what they should do (even though they know how the other feels). So if we want each other... why go? Every line is so brilliant. I love everyone's interpretations.
