Yamagata, Rachael - Starlight Lyrics




I couldn't see a thing tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star has shone for you.
I couldn't see a thing tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star has shone for you.
I couldn't see a thing tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star has shone for you.
I couldn't see a thing tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star has shone for you.
I add a little candlelight to get through.

Oh, I couldn't see the moon tonight,
Not one wave.
Not one wave was out for you.
No, I couldn't see the pale moonlight,
Not one part.
Not one wave was coming through.
And I'm terrified to look outside,
Cause I need you.

Starlight makes it all the same.
No light and I feel the pain.
Starlight makes it all a game with you, baby.
Starlight and I feel the same.
Missed flight on this aeroplane.
I'd jump from a moving train,
Just to keep you.
Would you do it for me?

Oh, I couldn't see the sky tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star has shone for you.
Yeah, I had a real hard time tonight.
I still feel your breath.
Oh my love I hold for you.
And I think that I've been holding out,
To hold onto.
And I'm terrified to look outside,
Cause I need you.

Something about you is like,
Drinking a cold glass of water.
Everyone needs a place to go to sometimes.
Something about you is like,
Going against Mother Nature.
And I decide to face her every time.

Starlight makes it all the same.
No light and I feel the pain.
Starlight makes it all a game with you, baby.
Starlight and I feel the same.
Missed flight on this aeroplane.
I'd jump from a moving train,
Just to keep you.
Would you do it for me?

As I watch you walk across the street,
I keep wondering why I can't leave.
All the heavens are against me and you.
Do you even know a thing 'bout me?
Do you even think about my needs?
Cause I need you.

I couldn't see a thing tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star was out for you.

    I couldn't see a thing tonight
    Not one star
    Not one star has shone for you
    I couldn't see a thing tonight

    2019 anyone still listening?

  4. Eh ?

    Just found her !!! omg her voice , her face , her music are EVERYTHING, love this song and horizon

  5. Jt Smith

    desperation never sounded so sensual yet alluring too. rachael evokes a strangeness of carnal carnivals. i recall my younger years as a teenager exploring the beach and the boardwalk on late evenings. i never found her. i know that if she does exist, i'd wish her to be like a mystery girl like rachael.

  6. Angélique Nomade

    Thank you Rachael

  19. youfoundme34

    Been a fan for years . . .and she still amazes me!

  20. TragicLonelyXic

    too bad i can't find her albums in Portugal....

  21. lilt0mb0y

    anyone paid attention to the lyrics?
    '' I'd jump from a moving train just to keep you ''
    did Bruno Mars steal this verse for his ugly song Grenade or is this coincidental..? :/

    Steven Mills

    Yeah I've always wondered about that too.

  22. ChrisDutch

    Why do I feel like taking my clothes off every time I hear Rachael Yamagata sing?

  23. PumpkinPhD

    "Do you even think about my needs?" Love, love, love it.

  24. thejaymanx111

    @Arturoz45 Yes, but who isn't?

  25. thejaymanx111

    She is exquisite - not just her physical beauty but the voice, a dusky, smoky, haunting voice which reminds me of the sensual overtones of Lauren Bacall in her younger days, and perhaps a touch of Joni Mitchell. Hope that she gains all the fame and recognition that she so richly deserves.

  26. Orange-Cat-Bad

    sexy, sexy

  27. Arturo Orozco

  35. Starry&Bohemian

    she should tour with Ana Calvi... and Lana del Rey will open for them... it's potentially the perfect female nightshow

  36. Yung Karthage

    She sounds like Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blond.
