A Sky Full Of Stars Lyrics

'Cause you're a sky, 'cause you're a sky full of stars
I'm gonna give you my heart
'Cause you're a sky, 'cause you're a sky full of stars
'Cause you light up the path

I don't care, go on and tear me apart
I don't care if you do,...

    It's a song about the elect of God that know and fulfill his plan and purpose. His plan and purpose is not about a seven year tribulation as most theologians teach..this is actually the world's interpretation of scripture not Christ's.. He said in the world you'll have tribulation, but be of good cheer I have overcome the world... His plan is a wedding feast... the stars are messengers...angels...the ones with the known plan and purpose of God.. and the ones without the knowledge generally want to tear you apart, like Jesus at the end they will as a fulfillment. We are these stars. that walk it out....New up coming website to watch and get involved with is ... premeditatedproposal.org. We will be posting more on the subject soon!!! Fallow and learn be a part of what church and religion have failed to see and reveal...it's amazing..

    When I listen to this song, for me it's all about Jesus. And I know Chris sings about God all the time in his lyrics, so it's totally possible that was his meaning. What a great song though, it can mean different things to different people. I've noticed for some on here it's about a new love. That's a great interpretation too. But it's so upbeat, easy to dance and song to as well. Great song!

    This is a soul moving song about the loss of a very special person in your life. It celebrates the person's life in remembrance. It also showcases the physical separation of the body and soul at the time of the person's death.

    Well crazy as this sounds there is a severely deep meaning to this lyric. 1st lets get something straight, the Prince and power of the air is Lucifer the fallen angelic cherub of Genesis. Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
    There can be no doubt to a critically thinking humanbeing that he is in control of this planet right now as stated in scripture. Just look around at the crazy state of chaos we are in...NOT GOOD. It claims in the Bible he was the origin of all music and is also called the angel of light or light bearer.
    Ezekiel 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Angels are also referred to as stars so is lucifer.
    2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
    Revelation 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
    NO ONE GETS FAMOUS AND SUPER RICH IN ANY INDUSTRY WITHOUT SATANS SAY SO. THIS IS HIS SANDBOX RIGHT NOW. Now re read those lyrics as a tribute to lucifer praising him and seeing him in the stars after all it is his sky. And the tearing apart is everyones eventual demise for worshiping him.
    Now armed with this information re read it as a tribute to the devil and let me know if makes sense......just my opinion

    this song is about a guy who is inlove but she does not feel the same way.
    even though she doesnt feel the same way, no matter how hard she broke
    his heart, he still sees her as an inspiration, something that could always
    make him smile "Cause you get lighter the more it gets dark". no matter what
    happens, if she wants to leave or find another guy, he'd always love him till
    the very end

    Well,,, my ex posted it on FB
    and it has been 4 months
    hope it is for me
    but could be a new love
    i am shaking and hands are shaking and i feel the pangs of love for her!
    She is 1000+ miles away
    she loved me and i loved her at times....
    doubt anyone loves all day everyday someone not family but hope i get to be so lucky!
    Great song!
    Good song for religious people to play!
    It says "i have a dream" in the video
    my ex is singing at a black church and is pictured with an older man not her lover obvious, from church.
    Glad she has people to help her that are sober,
    she hates to be alone.
    I miss her so much but we just bring up bad stuff in a day after we talk again,,,, i am getting good at this arguing thing she did and she hates it! She is off in lala land imo and i forgot my script most days...

    Coldplay's best songs have encrypted lyrics intended to relate to each listener and whatever we may be experiencing or struggling with in the moment. This song is about our need for a great love that inspires and calls us to surrender our ego and separateness.

    Psalms 19:1 says, "The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship."
    Romans 1:19-20, "They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing him."

    I believe this songs talks about how Chris see's God through his creation, the stars, and Chris's willingness to totally surrender to Him not matter what.

    This song was written at the time of Chris and Gweneth's 'conscious uncoupling'; I believe the song is to show Chris's unconditional and undying love towards Gweneth. He describes (maybe his past) feelings towards Gweneth saying that 'you're a sky full of stars', 'I'm going to give you my heart' and 'I wanna die in your arms'.

    And even though they both know they need to part ('go on and tear me apart') and move away from each other, he will always 'see her' in a 'sky full of stars'. In other words, no matter how far they move apart, Chris will always be able to find her in the metaphorical sky full of stars.

    I think he is talking about his fans and how they are a sky full of stars.
