Starlight Lyrics - Muse

Review The Song (95)



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
sponsored links
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

Muser's song | Reviewer: Stel | 8/5/13

Personally I think it's a song that every Muser dedicates to Muse! "This ship is taking me far away", "You electrify my life", "I will be chasing a starlight until the end of my life", "Hold you in my arms", "I will never let you go if you promise not to fade away".. Muse take us away from a sad world with bad music, electrify our lives, we will always listen to them because they're awesome, every Muser wants to go and see them and meet them and they do promise not to fade away through their amazing progress in every album! UST PERFECT!! LOVE THEM!!

far away | Reviewer: nik's pain | 6/4/12

i think this song is about life. The journy we travel born to death. In life born after we create the dream and follow them. If we got then happy. But if not the it's worth. Just like chasing the starligt.

my life | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/25/11

when i listen to this song i always think about the girl i love. because of my studies i had to go away from my home city and i cant see her very often.

By the way this song is the best song i ever heard.

Completely Beautiful | Reviewer: MUSEobssessed.. | 8/28/11

This song is just beautiful. I don't say that about many songs, but this one deserves the title - The notes really strike a chord somewhere inside me, and many others I'd imagine.. The lyrics send shivers down my spine, and, as with all Muse songs, you can hear the raw emotion and meaning in Matt's voice. He is the most interesting, influental and inspiring person in the world of music, and I absolutely love him. Thankyou Muse, for changing my life(: xx

a strong love/bond | Reviewer: ichigo15 | 7/31/11

I think that the lyrics are about two people who have a strong relationship or bond and, for some reason, one has to leave. (From the boys point of veiw) He doesnt want her to go and wants to hold her and love her. "i'll never let you go, if you promise not to fade away" Fading away could represent them leaving. It's like their fading from their heart. "i just wanted to hold you in my arms" when she does leave, he misses her and wants her in his arms once more.

A song that speaks many words! | Reviewer: CMM | 6/23/11

This is such a great song because it can be interpreted in anyway you want.
For me, it is so poignant as it came on the radio when we were driving home from hospital with our daughter for the first time, she was nearly 6 months old having been born very prematurely. It was a very bitter sweet moment, one we thought we would never see and also great sadness at knowing that some of the families we met never got to bring their children home.

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

That hospital was our home for almost half a year!

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

She was a month old before we even held her.

This song makes me cry with mixed emotions every time I hear it!


Agreement | Reviewer: Rowy | 3/14/11

I am in complete agreement with Wills' lengthy comment!
I love the fact that this song can be interpreted in so many different ways and thus strike a chord with so many people nad their experiences and I think this is one of the Muse's best, most enduring songs - which is saying something, when talking about such a great (in all great's meanings) band!

hold u in my arms | Reviewer: siggy | 8/30/10

Must is by far one of th best progressive rock groups I'm the world hAving said that, this song appeals to so many who can identify with its oftentimes nostalgic but always strong committment to the individual journey we take in life. For those of us whose destinies are starlight bound, know the journey to the worlds arms has it trials too.

awesome! | Reviewer: Calmeister | 8/17/10

This song is about Gaia Polloni - whom which was Matthew's girlfriend. "Black holes & Revelations" is about the mind Black holes are the things we dont know, or dont think about, and revelations are the things we remember :)

love | Reviewer: lover | 5/11/10

I actually think it's about an unreachable girl and he is trying everything to make her his but doesn't know if it is still worth chasing her because he has been carried away from the people who really love him.


Assumed it was about someone in the Navy! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/21/10

I have loved this song for some time but it really hit home the day I was driving my husband to the Navy base where he would deploy on an aircraft carrier for months. The song just spoke to me and I was convinced that this singer must have been in the Navy and in our exact situation in the past! It's funny how it speaks to everyone in such different ways. It also hit home for us because we are considering him leaving the Navy because the deployments make it not worth the sacrifice of leaving his family behind for large chunks of time. The lyrics "I don't know if it's worth it anymore..." spelled it out. Also, becuase I didn't understand a few of the lyrics, I really thought he was saying "I will be chasing the starlight" which to us meant he was a pilot, like my husband, and would be soaring the skies under the starlight. Anyway...that's my take!
GREAT SONG! Tearjerker for sure!

Interstellar traveler re. | Reviewer: Trevor | 4/10/10

In reality the song is about a real ship as in the music video and the metaphor lies in the phrase "our hopes and expectations / black holes and revelations"

But honestly, your idea John sounds way cooler lol

Interstellar traveller | Reviewer: John | 3/25/10

On a literal level the song seems to chronical the musings of an interstellar pioneer who is now questioning the worth of dedicating his life to advance human civilization and knowledge at the expense of his personal humanity, knowing that he will never again see or feel the warmth of those he left behind and that the memories are all he has left to hold on to. "Our hopes and expectations, black holes and revelations symbolize the eternal search for the meaning of life; science versus religion, cold hard realities versus something larger and meaningful, the reason he volunteered in the first place.

Great Song. | Reviewer: Hugh Jass | 2/14/10

This is the very thing i love about Muse. Their lyrics are meant to be interpreted any way you see fit. This particular track has my favorite lyrics of all their songs; whenever i hear/read them chills run up my spine....

Addiction | Reviewer: Jniz | 2/4/10

This song is about a drug addiction. The drug has distanced him from his loved ones. he is chasing after "starlight" for the rest of his life and doesn't know if its worth it to keep up his infatuation with the drug any longer. But he can't let it go because the drugs electrify his life.
