Big Country - 1000 Stars Lyrics




Now we play our final hand
Move in closer, understand
This time like never before
Only the black queen scores
A card so high and so wild
We should burn it

The luck of a thousand stars
Can't get me out of this
The luck of a thousand stars
Losing its charm

There are people I have loved
Hypnotized by lies
In defensive disguise
Some say protect and survive
I say it's over

The luck of a thousand stars
Can't get me out of this
The luck of a thousand stars
Losing its charm

Hold me through the darkest night
I feel secure in your arms
While all the city's on fire
It's not between you and me
But we are losing

The luck of a thousand stars
Can't get me out of this
The luck of a thousand stars
Can't get me out of this
The luck of a thousand stars
Losing its charm

    I heard once that these lyrics describe "The words of a Luftwaffe Night Fighter Pilot who sees the end..." The lyrics of the song do seem to fit this scene and I have been intrigued ever since. Does anyone know anything about this?

    Killer drums from Mark-rhythmically awesome across the album. My Dad gave me this album when I was 13-been a fan ever since. Stuarts still very missed but his spirit lives on in the songs. THE band from the 80's for me, passion, musicality and technically brilliant-oh and not bad live!!!
