Stars – Calendar Girl – Lyrics

Listened to the Stars album “Set Yourself On Fire”. Thought the first two tracks were good but the rest of the album descended into “blah blah blah” noise fairly fast. People compared them to Arcade Fire, nah, don’t think so. Anyway, Joe reminded me to listen to the last track again, called Calendar Girl. That could actually be the best track on the album. Good choice sir. Kind of has a dark twist to it too.

If I am lost for a day; try and find me
But if I don’t come back, then I won’t look behind me
All of the things that I thought were so easy
Just got harder and harder each day
December is the darkest and June is the light but this empty bedroom won’t make anything right
While out on the landing a friend I forgot to send home
Who waits up for me all through the night

Calendar girl whos in love with the world Stay alive
Calendar Girl whos in love with the world Stay alive

I dreamed I was dying; as I so often do
And when I awoke I was sure it was true
I ran to the window; threw my head to the sky
And said whoever is up there,please don’t let me die
But I can’t live forever,I can’t always breath
One day I’ll be sand on a beach by a sea
The pages keep turning, I’ll mark off each day with a cross
And I’ll laugh about all that we’ve lost

Calendar Girl who is lost to the world
Stay Alive
Calendar Girl who is lost to the world Stay Alive
January,February,March,April,May I’m alive
June,July,August,September,October I’m alive
November,December,yah all through the winter, I’m alive
I’m alive

    Who compared STARS to ARCADE FIRE?! Stars is pure pop deliciousness, and the Arcade Fire is fantastic swamp rock. I think the most the two bands have in common are their Canadian passports (and, undoubtedly, the maple leaves on their backpacks).

    Does anyone else get the distinct impression that the AF have (sadly) been reduced to some sort of music buzz-word, mostly because they’re such an incredibly hyped band? (Though well deserving of all of their praise.) I wouldn’t be surprised if last week somebody declared ‘Oh, have you heard the new Madonna album? Yeah, she’s a lot like, um, this band the Arcade Fire – they’re brilliant, I caught them at the Electric Picnic (but I had the album waaaay before that).’

    I have the tendancy to disagree with you lot about The Stars. While I would agree that they are much different from Arcade Fire, their music is great in another way.
    Comparissions can be made between bands of different genres. Hopefully the Arcade Fire are like Madonna in way – in that they become a musical entity that continues with loyal fans for decades. They are more than worthy of a legacy if they keep up their efforts. I’d much rather them be compared to Madonna than… say… Nickleback.
    Does it really matter anyway? If their music is so good, it shouldn’t matter who they are compared to… in anyones opinion!

    I think all the tracks to “set yourself on fire” was great. This whole album people can relate to in some ways. Like “one more night” everybody who has been in a relationship has gone through the whole scenrio.
