OverviewEdit

According to Wolstenholme, "Starlight" is "kind of a love song about missing someone, friends, family, someone you love".

Musical styleEdit

It is in the key of B major. First described as "a souped-up cousin of the Strokes' 12:51".

The clapping at the beginning of "Starlight" can be written as "— ·· — ···" in Morse code, which spells out "TITS"

Live performanceEdit

Starlight is played live in either B flat major or A major, instead of the recorded B.

Starting in 2006, performances of Starlight have been dedicated to a section of the audience, such as those at the back or top.

Alternative versionsEdit

An alternative mix of Starlight, known as the "New Mix, "Radio Mix" or "Radio Version" was distributed on promotional media only. This version was presumably created to give the song a sound more suitable for radio broadcast.

LyricsEdit

Starlight Lyrics

Far away
This ship has taken me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

Starlight
I will be chasing a starlight
Until the end of my life
I don't know if it's worth it anymore

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold you in my arms

My life
You electrify my life
Let's conspire to ignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive

I'll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away
Never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold you in my arms

Far away
This ship has taken me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

I'll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away
Never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold you in my arms I just wanted to hold
