"Lost Stars" as written by and Benjamin Levin Adam Levine....
Please don't see
Just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies
Please see me
Reaching out for someone I can't see

Take my hand, let's see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans sometimes are just a one night stand
I'll be damned, Cupid's demanding back his arrow
So let's get drunk on our tears

And God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It's hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

Who are we?
Just a speck of dust within the galaxy?
Woe is me
If we're not careful turns into reality

But don't you dare let our best memories bring you sorrow
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer
Turn the page, maybe we'll find a brand new ending
Where we're dancing in our tears

And God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It's hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

And I thought I saw you out there crying oohoo
And I thought I heard you call my name yeah yay yay
And I thought I heard you out there crying
No, just the same oh yeah yeah yeah yeah

God, give us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It's hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

And I thought I saw you out there crying oohoo
And I thought I heard you call my name oohoo
And I thought I heard you out there crying
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

    General CommentPlease don't see just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies.
    Please see me reaching out for someone I can't see.

    He've always been a childish boy, always dreaming and laughing about everything, but he doesn't want her to see him just like this,because that's not him fully. He is trying to discover himself.((please see me reaching out for someone i can't see))

    Take my hand, let's see where we wake up tomorrow.
    Best laid plans; sometimes are just a one night stand.
    I'll be damned; Cupid's demanding back his arrow.
    So let's get drunk on our tears.

    He wants to hang out with her, find new things, new places, new people, just wanna have fun with her. He needs to forget,cause it tears him apart,((so let's get drunk in our tears))about all love that he said he had for insignificant people just to hook up.((cupid's demanding back his arrow))

    And God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young.

    He thinks that he's wasting his youth with insignificant shit.

    It's hunting season and this lamb is on the run.
    We're searching for meaning...

    He searches for meaning in other people. He hook up to feel alive.

    But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

    But in his point of view, every young person feels a little bit lost. Lost stars. Trying to find meaning to everything.

    Who are we? Just a speck of dust within the galaxy.
    Woe is me
    If we're not careful turns into reality.

    In this verse, he expresses how useless we are in the whole universe. I guess, i don't know for sure what i'm saying about this verse, i might be terribly wrong.

    Don't you dare let our best memories bring you sorrow.
    Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer.
    Turn the page; maybe we'll find a brand new ending.
    Where we're dancing in our tears.

    He doesn't want her to remember the times by his side with tears in her eyes, he wants the memory to remain perfect. So, after the possible break up, he expects themselves not to be sad about it. They could "turn the table".

    I thought I saw you out there crying...
    I thought I heard you call my name...
    I thought I heard you out there crying...
    But just the same...

    He imagines her coming back to him so badly, that he even thought those things.

    My InterpretationOK, FORGET EVERYTHING THAT I SAID BEFORE. I GAVE THIS SONG A LOT OF THOUGHTS AND THIS CAME OUT:

    In my new point of new, this song tells about how the world sees the young people nowadays. And the narrator is always saying that is normal to be a little bit lost and confused about things. It also tells about the parties, the hang outs and hook ups of the young people and shit and the necessity of them to discover themselves. The narrator also speaks about all the love that they say they have for insignificant people just to know about themselves or hook up(cupid's demanding back his arrow).

    YEAH I GUESS THAT NOW IT'S DONE. GIVE YOUR OPINIONS GUYS
