Stars Lyrics Meanings

Stars Lyrics

Stood out in the rain
Let it soak me down
Before I called you . . . I called
You didn't see me there
Hidden by the rain
Beneath your window . . . but I saw you

Putting on your face before the
Mirror on the wall
Dreaming that the looking glass was me
Catching your fondest gazes
Living through your fickle phases
I love you

And it's getting easier each day
To weep about you
Harder every night to sleep without you
How many years must I be driven
By this dream
Of love with you?

Spend my dimes on phones
Trying just to talk but
You don't answer . . . you let it ring

Spend my nights alone
Catching falling stars to
Give to you, love
They're just for you

For stars fall every time a
Lover has to face the truth
And far too many stars have fell on me
And as they trail the skies
And burn their paths upon my eyes
I cry

Stars Meanings

The protagonist’s relationship is over and he can’t accept it. He continually calls his former love but she won’t pick up. He shows up to her house and looks at her through a window, wishing that he was her mirror so she would look at him and catch her fondest gazes again.(restraining order much?) I have loved this song for 40 years but never understood the mirror part. I always thought THE WOMAN was dreaming that the looking glass was him, which didn’t fit the narrative. I just realized, HE’S the one wishing the mirror was him...not her. Now this verse fits the rest of the song. If you’ve ever had your heartbroken, you can relate. Far too many stars have fell on me.
