"Like a Star" as written by and Corinne Bailey Rae....
Just like a star across my sky
Just like an angel off the page
You have appeared to my life
Feel like I'll never be the same
Just like a song in my heart
Just like oil on my hands
Oh, I do love you

Still wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind

You've got this look I can't describe
You make me feel I'm alive
When everything else is so faint
Without a doubt you're on my side
Heaven has been away too long
Can't find the words to write this song, oh
Your love

Still I wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind

Yeah

I have come to understand the way it is
Is not a secret anymore
'Cause we've been through that before
From tonight I know that you're the only one
I've been confused and in the dark
Now I understand, yeah, yeah

I wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
I wonder why it is
I won't let my guard down
For anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind

Just like a star across my sky
Just like an angel off the page
You have appeared to my life
Feel like I'll never be the same
Just like a song in my heart
Just like oil on my hands

    General Commentmmm. I think it's true. when you find someone that really understands you or rather just doesn't judge you, those are the kind of people you can yell and scream at because underneath you know it's all gonna be fine again cause there's trust and friendship.

    this person is special to her and she doesn't get why things are so sweet yet they can argue all the time.

    General CommentHow has this song only got one other comment so far? Has to be one of the most lovely songs I've heard for a while, totally calms me down. Unfortunatley, "What this song means to me", is not a particularly positive thing...I have found this boy, I really, really like him because he's so different to anybody I've ever met...and unfortunatley this song fits perfectly with him and this other girl. Yeah, so this song makes me sad. I still love it though...such a beautiful voice.

    General CommentI loved this song as soon as I heard it and it wasn't until I really listened to the lyrics I realised I'm in an identical situation. To me this song is about a boy who I've been really close friends with for about a year. Everyone thinks we're, like, in love and everyone asks if we're an item. But it's not like that. Every month or so we have some huge blown out argument over nothing. And I really can't argue like that with anyone else. But in the end, it always works out. Because I think we're meant for each other. And he's always on my side.

    General CommentThis song, for me, depicts the very essence of my relationship with my mum. We scream at eachother but we love eachother dearly. Even though she kicked me out of my house last night because I was smoking weed. I still love her though, sometimes.

    General Commentlove is like oil
    it keeps the friction down
    :D

    those closest to us can really get good traction sometimes and blast our skin off

    sardines in a can baby

    add oil!
    :D
