Overview

See Ozma song explanations - 2000

there are a lot of things you could probably get out of this song. on the surface, a song with a story line about a soldier come back from war who finds that his lover has left him. the chorus 'every night i see a shooting star and wonder if it's landing where you are,' deals somewhat with memories, looking for people you miss. the sad thing is that the soldier, while in battle, was probably dreaming of his lover every night (while she was obviously not dreaming of him). it's also possible that his memory of her helped him to make it through his difficult circumstances. so again, i notice that the things that improve you also hurt you. 'everytime i take a look around, i find myself looking down, to a place that looking much more round...' for me it's about trying to look at yoursef objectively and noticing that you aren't seeing the world that is, but rather, a world you dream about living in.

Lyrics

I finally feel at ease
I'm on an eastern breeze
It blows me to the shore

Come back to kiss my dear
Come back to face my fears
It can't be worse than war

Unless you say that you gave your heart away (Gave your heart away)
Unless you say that I shouldn't have returned (Shouldn't have returned)
And in that case, I'll go

Every night I see a shooting star
And wonder if it's landing where you are
If you can see it then you can't be far
And if that's the way you do it
That's the way you find your love

The air is cold and thin
I'm on my second wind
It blows me to your door

Lean into the bell and press
You're in a brand new dress
I've never seen before

But then you say that you gave your heart away (Gave your heart away)
And then you say that I shouldn't have returned (Shouldn't have returned)
So I turn my face, and go

Every time I take a look around
I find myself looking down
To a place that's looking much more round
I find myself looking down

Every night I see a shooting star
And wonder if it's landing where you are
If you can see it then you can't be far
And if that's the way you do it
That's the way you find your love

I finally feel at ease
I'm on an eastern breeze
It blows me to your door
