To fully appreciate this lovely song, try watching the movie “Begin Again” with your family and friends this Sunday. Just stay home, be together to feel each other’s presence and find Christ among you. In our Sunday reflection today, we said that “Sometimes, we feel we truly love God and those around us but when we examine our priorities in life, we do not really love that much because we fail and even refuse to care, recognize and look for the person. What we easily and often look for is the object, the things we can have to fill us, even bloat us.” It is the same point of view of this song “Lost Stars” wherein we never stop searching for meaning in life, trying to lead others out of darkness to more fulfilment in life. “Begin Again” shows us how true are the teachings of Jesus in the gospel today, that we must search and aspire for the higher things in life, not to be consigned with what the world offers that bloat our egos. Life’s direction calls us to a continuous laboring in love, of always finding and giving meaning in our lives in God. I have underlined some lyrics that are so related with the gospel today too.
Please don’t see just a girl caught up in dreams and fantasies
Please see me reaching out for someone I can’t see
Take my hand, let’s see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans, sometimes are just a one night stand
I’ll be damned, Cupid’s demanding back his arrow
So let’s get drunk on our tears
And God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and this lamb is on the run
We’re searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars?
Trying to light up the dark
Who are we? Just a speck of dust within the galaxy
Woe is me, if we’re not careful turns into reality
Don’t you dare let our best memories bring you sorrow
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer
Turn the page, maybe we’ll find a brand new ending
Where we’re dancing in our tears…
