Lost Stars
Keira Knightley Lyrics


Please don't see just a girl caught up in dreams and fantasies
Please see me reaching out for someone I can see
Take my hand, let's see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans, sometimes are just a one night stand
I'd be damned, Cupid's demanding back his arrow
So let's get drunk on our tears and

God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It's hunting season and this lamb is on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

Who are we? Just a speck of dust within the galaxy
'Woe is me' if we're not careful turns into reality
Don't you dare let all these memories bring you sorrow
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer
Turn the page, maybe we'll find a brand new ending
Where we're dancing in our tears and

God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It's hunting season and this lamb is on the run
We're searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

I thought I saw you out there crying
I thought I heard you call my name
I thought I heard you out there crying
We're just the same

God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It's hunting season and this lamb is on the run
We're searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?
Are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark

Adam's version has the passion and performance polish of a professional superstar musician, and that is valuable to be sure. But the gentility, fragility and vulnerability of Keira's version, with its unguarded lack of pretense, is literally exquisite and thoroughly heartbreaking. It seems to capture the purity and uncompromised sincerity of a songwriter with his/her precious material that seems to pour straight from their hearts and onto the page. Adam's version is meant to be performed for a concert hall full of adoring fans; Keira's version is meant to be cherished like a secret jewel... one human heart at a time.

@Pragya That's really sweet of you to say. Thank you!

A comment that reads like a beautiful poem. Apart from the perfect appreciation for the song your writing inspires me to write like this.

I prefer this version. In this version, you feel the agony, the nostalgia, the vulnerability which are not so apparent in Adam's version

@Sarah Davis dude. Did you not read my comment? She's never going to sing again. He made her not want to. So no, she hasn't kept singing. And she most likely never will.

Sarah Davis

@Samuel Brant Fisher awe that's awful. Hope she kept singing after all these years :)

Adam's songs were intentionally written to make his character sound just as shitty as he was to Gretta and it was very cleverly written.
Unfortunately, the director still terrorized Keira for how her voice sounded to the point where she never wanted to sing again :(
