Love,
Come out wherever you are
Love,
No headlights drive in the dark
How am I suppose to find my heart?

Love,
Speak quiet, barely make a sound
Come closer now
Come near so I can find you out
So I can have you now

Love,
I'm the one to bring you out
Now all I want is for you to show me how
Come out wherever you are
Come out come out wherever you are

Hello
It's been a while since I spoke your name
But I remember now;
what it's like to feel you in my veins
How am I suppose to feel the same?

Love,
I'm the one to bring you out
Now all I want is for you to show me how
Come out wherever you are
Come out, come out wherever you are
Come out, come out wherever you are

There's too many stars reaching over the horizon
Let them burn now
Let them burn now
There's too many stars reaching over the horizon
Let them burn now
Let them burn now
There's too many stars reaching over the horizon
Let them burn now
Let them burn now
There's too many stars reaching over the horizon
Let them burn now

Come out wherever you are, wherever you are
(let them burn now, let them burn now)

Let them burn...

    My OpinionIs it "burn now" or "burn out"?
    I figured it was "burn out," and "too many stars stretching over the horizon" meant like, too many fish in the sea, or too many distractions; and that the "love" she's calling out to is hidden in all those stars.

    This is probably super cheesy, but:
    I really relate to that because I don't know who the person for me is; I don't think I've ever met that person who's the perfectly-fitting puzzle piece; and I feel like she's just somewhere I can't see her, and I don't know where to start looking for her -

    "...now all I want is for you to show me how".

    It's hard to find the star your looking for when there are countless others which look pretty much the same.
    Anyway, I thought "let 'em burn out" was like, a wish that all the other distractions would just not be distractions anymore, and the one would be obvious.

    That could be WAY off, though.

    My InterpretationI always thought it was "let them burn out" too. It does change the basic demeanor of the song, too. I absolutely love this song - when it comes up on my library, it always goes on repeat for a good while. Approaching it from the perspective of someone who has been called "empathically challenged," this one resonates heavily.

    It never really occurred to me that when she opened with the word, "Love," that she was speaking of the unknown object of her desires and affections - I always thought she was speaking of love itself. This changes the meaning of the song entirely, and colors the whole thing with a darker tint that I love.

    With this minor change, the speaker is declaring herself incapable of feeling love, perhaps remembering what it was once like, and wishing to recapture that feeling.

    At the end, when she sings, "There are too many stars reaching over the horizon. Let them burn out," it now takes on the feeling that too many people take this feeling and this intimacy for granted. These overzealous stars are using this mysterious thing lightly that she wishes she had.

    Let them burn out - it now comes from a place of envy or jealousy. She's no longer just looking for an object at which to direct this feeling, she's cold, and longing for the ability to feel it at all. If she can't have it, then let the ones who can burn out.

    It's beautiful, and it's a deeply honest sentiment that I have been trying to put to words for years now.
