Distant Star Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well, a goodbye never seems finished
Just like these songs that I write
They hang aloft like stars in the night
But there's nothing there but the illusion of a light
And you, you could've been mine
Verse 2
Your mother, she's an actress
And we're all putting on a play
Here's some conviction, pretend that's all real
Try to ignore how sad it all feels
Yes, try not to break her heart if you can
Verse 3
Hold on
To whatever you can until it's gone
Carry on
For none of us will be here for too long
Verse 4
I'll try not to let the world and its darkness bring me down
Think of the love and the beauty I found
The simple things that I've left behind
Oh the way he'd make me laugh
Verse 5
But I hold on
To whatever I can until it's gone
I'll carry on
For none of us will be here for too long, long
Verse 6
You're a distant star
My darling, you're so far away
You were never meant to stay
I reach out to see
If you're still here with me
Baby, we could've made it easy
Couldn't we?
Verse 7
Now I will never know you
You are just someone passing by
And it makes me sad to think about
All the stories and fates I'll be without
But I think I'm getting used to the silence now
