All Of The Stars - Ed Sheeran

 
by Simon Cleary 

The Experience: Ed starts The Fault In Our Stars Soundtrack with this single, a sweetly sad pop song. Love and sadness dance together, in the lyric hope that "all of these stars will guide us home."

Official Video: Moving from mourning flowers, the video shifts to the messages and memories pasted all over the Hazel's wall. Small cuts of Hazel's loneliness are spliced in. The video ends panning back from the wall to Ed, softly singing in mourning black. He drops his head at the end, both sorrowful but at peace. That's the way the song's meant to leave us.

The meaning of Ed Sheeran's All Of The Stars is loving from a distance, and trying to come together again. The lyrics sing about thinking about her (I saw a shooting star and thought of you... I'd sing to you) and wondering if she sees the same way, even if she's so far apart. (I can see the stars from America, I wonder, do you see them, too?) Distance doesn't have to mean separation. If we think and love when far apart, it means nothing can keep us apart. (Our horizons meet) With love but cancer, The Fault In Our Stars song tells us that not even death can separate love. 
In Heaven, we will meet again - all of these stars will guide us home... 

Ask Yourself: Do I believe love lasts longer than this life? Is that the way I love? 


LYRICS:
It's just another night
And I'm staring at the moon
I saw a shooting star
And thought of you
I sang a lullaby
By the waterside and knew
If you were here,
I'd sing to you

You're on the other side
As the skyline splits in two
I'm miles away from seeing you
I can see the stars
From America
I wonder, do you see them, too?

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
As both of our hearts bleed
All of these stars will guide us home

I can hear your heart
On the radio beat
They're playing 'Chasing Cars'
And I thought of us
Back to the time,
You were lying next to me
I looked across and fell in love
So I took your hand
Back through London's streets 
I knew
Everything led back to you
So can you see the stars
Over Amsterdam?
You're the song my heart is beating to

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts bleed
All of these stars will guide us home

And, oh, I know
And oh, I know, oh
I can see the stars
From America
