"Northern Star" as written by Melanie Chisholm and Richard W Jr N Nowels....
They tried to catch a falling star.
Thinking that she had gone too far.
She did but kept it hidden well.
Until she cracked and then she fell.

If all the history is true.
She's gonna end up just like you.
You made it to the other side.
But tell me who will be my guide.

They build you up so they can tear you down.
Trust the ocean you'll never drown.
Who is next? Who's gonna steal your crown?
You'll see.

I have learnt my lesson well.
The truth is out there I can tell.
Don't look back and don't give in to their lies and goodbyes.
Northern Star.

Fulfil the longing in your heart.
Then we will never be apart.
And if they dare to question you.
Just tell them that our love is true.

They buy your dreams so they can sell your soul.
Is it any wonder we've lost control?
Feelings come, feelings go.

I have learnt my lesson well.
The truth is out there I can tell.
Don't look back and don't succumb to their lies and goodbyes.
Live your life without regret.
Don't be someone who they forget.
When you're lost reach out for me.
And you'll see she's not far.
Northern Star.
Northern Star.

I have learnt my lesson well.
The truth is out there I can tell.
Don't look back and don't succumb to their lies and goodbyes.
Live your life without regret.
Don't be someone who they forget.
When you're lost reach out for me.
And you'll see she's not far.
Northern Star.
Northern Star.
Northern Star.

    General CommentThis song is not about the EU!

    I think I read somewhere it is about fame and the showbiz industry. It is about life in that environment and the lessons she's learnt. As a former Spice Girl she would have experienced the ups and downs of the industry.

    Lovely song.

    My Interpretation"On 31 May 1998, Halliwell announced that she had left the Spice Girls due to natural depression and differences between the group. The first official confirmation was an announcement to the media by her solicitor on 31 May." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geri_Halliwell

    "Melanie C began her solo career in late 1998 by singing with Canadian rock singer Bryan Adams on the song "When You're Gone". Her solo debut album Northern Star was released in 1999."

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…
    _______________________________________________________________________

    The northern star is known as Polaris, the star that lets people find their way or guide them when traveling by any means. Read the lyrics to Melanie Chisholm's song as if Geri Halliwell were that star...

    "They tried to catch a falling star.
    Thinking that she had gone too far.
    She did but kept it hidden well.
    Until she cracked and then she fell."

    Something to think about, and also what the theme of the album is about.

    General CommentShe sings about a person "Northstar" Who is looking for a girl. Mel do not know if they will get together but she does her best for them to have contact with each other. The boy has come in at a state as he looks at the world in a different way. Mel carrying a cross on his shirt, so unlikely is that it is spiritual.

    General Commentthis is song from norwegian campaign agianst EU.
    "They tried to catch a falling star
    Thinking that she had gone too far
    She did but kept it hidden well
    Until she cracked and then she fell"
    star - refering to EU flag

    "If all the history is true
    Shes gonna end up just like you
    You made it to the other side
    But tell me who will be my guide"

    talking about other scandinavian countries and how tough is it in the EU.

    They build you up so they can tear you down
    Trust the ocean youll never drown
    Who is next? Whos gonna steal your crown?

    here they show on how EU helped ireland and portugal economically, but destryoed them culturally.
    crown is norwegian currency
