you were better than. a fallen star. these late nights. and nothing more. and nothing less. nothing less. one day. you'll see the show. with fancy cars. and expensive clothes. and one day. you'll be in the crowd. watching all the lost and found

since im in college, im seeing this song a different way, first 'you' is someone who has wasted their earlier years staying up nights playing games or whatever, and has accomplished nothing (these late nights...and nothing more)
and said person will wake up one day to see all his/her friends successful, making money and enjoy fruitful lives (one day you'll see the show...fancy cars etc.)
and lastly (you'll be in the crowd watching all the lost and found) - meaning he/she will be in the middle there, among the people who are 'lost' and found. in search of a particular goal.
So perhaps this person was not yet involved with their life - but the lyricist obviously holds them in a regard which shows the potential to be truely better, and burn brightly if only the effort is made.
However I think a certain amount of respect is being given to the character just for existing at all by the tone of the song.
i know those aren't the words...but have you ever read the lyrics to a great song and found out they weren't what you wanted them to be? i still love this song.
