By Starlight

Album: Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (1995)
  • By starlight I'll kiss you
    And promise to be your one and only
    I'll make you feel happy
    And leave you to be lost in mine
    And where will we go
    What will we do?
    Soon said I will know

    And are you just like me?
    Dead eyes, dead eyes
    Are you just like me?
    Her eyes, her eyes were as vacant as the seas, yeah
    Dead eyes, dead eyes
    Are you just like me?

    And all along we knew we'd carry on
    Just to belong
    By starlight I know you
    As lovely as a wish granted true
    My life has been empty, my life has been untrue
    And does she really know, who I really am?
    Does she really know me at last
    And are you just like me?

    Dead eyes, dead eyes
    Are you just like me?
    Her eyes, her eyes were as vacant as the seas, yeah
    Dead eyes, dead eyes
    Are you just like me?

    And are you just like me?
    And are you just like me?
    And are you just like me?
    Uh, uh, uh
    Uh, uh, uh

  • Ripu from North Shore, New ZealandHm i totally disagree with this interpretation. i allways thought it was about how maybe seeing someone and really just liking them at that moment but knowing their name or anything just knowing them by a distinctive feature (like dead eyes as vacent as the seas) and wondering if the person is just as lonely as you and just like you
