    In the "John Williams' Love Themes" thread, JediMaster22 said he would like to see lyrics for Across the Stars. Well, once that idea got into my head, it wouldn't get out. So, here are the lyrics I've come up with for AtS:

    From 0:00 to 2:29:

    I feel you
    Standing beside me,
    But deep inside, my heart cries.

    Now I'm burided
    Deep within secrets and lies.

    But I can't hide the truth any longer.
    Leaving you takes all my strength.
    But holding you is making me stronger.
    Sorrow is love's sweet lament.

    The sunshine
    Reaches no mortal.
    There is a portal uncrossed.

    And its brightness
    Cannot be seen through time lost.

    And we can only judge by our feelings,
    Not what hindered sight allows.
    A secret heart of wishings and dreamings
    Brings our lives together now.

    My love is
    Deeper than oceans,
    More than a notion passing.

    Death will take us.
    But love is everlasting

    And no one can know of my love.
    I'm gazing at you from above.
    Far above the earth and sky,
    You'll never see the tears I cry.

    From 2:29 to 3:07 - no singing

    From 3:07 to 4:28:

    In dreams, I'll
    Love you forever,
    Knowing you'll never leave me.

    I have loved you
    Longer than anyone can see.

    If only dreams could linger in daytime,
    You would always be my own.
    But I can only live when the stars shine,
    Wishing you were mine to hold.

    I feel you,
    Standing beside me,
    But deep inside my heart cries.

    Now I'm buried
    Deep within secrets and lies.

    The cold of fear creeps through my veins,
    A sorrow I cannot contain.
    Eyes can only gaze so far,
    But I see you across the stars.

    From 4:28 to 4:39 - no singing

    From 4:39 to 5:33:

    Your beauty's
    Undying sweetness
    Haunts me through all my life's grief.

    Now I'm falling
    And there is no one there to catch me.

    The sunshine
    Will never reach me,
    But in your eyes it shines.



    EDIT: Forgot to mention-these are Ani's thoughts about Padme around the beginning of AotC.

    Now...I'm a cynic who doesn't like mushy stuff, and was only half impressed by the 'Luke & Leia' lyrics. But that was superb. The rhythm and rhyme were excellent and those lyrics were absolutely grand. A great job, StarWarsGirl.

    I might try some lyrics for the End Credits finish, if they can somehow fit after that display of emotion, and of nobody gets there first!

    I just saw Cabaret last night, so it was inevitable that I was to hear Tina Arena's voice in my head while reading that.

    :p ;)

    Very cool!! My compliment!

    But: At some points there is one syllable too much... Perhaps I am mistaken, but I can't sing along in some sections...

    Now I'm burided
    Deep within secrets and lies.


    That's one of the parts... At the musicaly equal parts I have the same problem...

    Perhaps, you can correct me... Which syllables are to be sung on one note?

    Wow, I put "burided." Great spelling, huh? ;) Anyway, thank you all so much for the great comments! I really appreciate it. :)

    ChimealHeltei : I think the words fit the melody there...I had originally omitted the "Now," but I realized that what sounded like one continuous note was actually two notes in the same key.

    I'm not sure if it was the same person but there was a "poem" which pretty much was lyrics to Luke and Leia. Should we make an official thread where people write their own lyrics to different Star Wars songs?

    Yes. I'm preparing some for The Arena. Comedy lyrics, obviously. I think that should be allowed.

    How about we change this thread name to Lyrics (if that can be done) and someone post the Luke & Leia poem in (preferably the author), and we let it carry on.

    BTW, I really love it but it's a bit too 'wordy' for my taste. Just me, I suppose.

    Well I don't think words fit the piece of music, but if there WERE to be words, I think these would be it.

    If you wroted this during The Celine Dion Rumors ;) people went nuts ...

    Can't sing along now, If there is somebody with a beautiful voice (female) and sing it, and mix the original song later for better qualtiy, and publish it here ...

    Here is the start to mine :)

    (0.00 - 2.29)

    ANAKIN
    Across the stars that shine brightly,
    Ever divinely,
    Brave, you reign.
    Your heart so pure with kindness,
    Destined to fail.

    Your world is nothing I can imagine,
    Far away from this dry place.
    A world of water, freedom, compassion,
    Worlds that I have yet to know...

    PADME
    Across the stars that shine brightly,
    Danger inviting,
    Hope, you gave.
    Your heart so pure with kindness,
    Destined to fail.

    Your world of hope and endless compassion,
    Saved my world so far away.
    So much for one so young, so inspiring,
    What more could you give to me?

    ANAKIN & PADME
    I know our hearts will beat wildly,
    Uncompromising,
    Though the days.
    Our love will last us forever,
    Can it change?

    PADME
    Ten years have passed,
    And things do change.
    Those worlds we knew,
    Seem far away.

    ANAKIN
    Your heart is colder,
    Beating slower,
    You?ve grown older,

    PADME
    Things have changed.
