Star's Themesong - Live Like A Warrior by Matisyahu

3 comments

I believe this is Star's theme song because it so well describes how he was an outcast at the beginning, but he shrugged it off, and listened to his friends and mother, ultimately saving him from becoming the Destroyer. Here are the lyrics (listen with song): (will add song link later because im at school and can't view videos)

Also ic hanged some parts to fit the theme of pegasi, the bits in brackets were the original lyrics

 

VERSE 1

Feel like the world don't love you,

They only wanna push you away

Some days pegasi (people) don't see you,

Feel like you're in the way

 

To me, this part means all about how Star's herd rejected him and jeered at him for being different.

 

Today you feel, as everyone hates

Pointing their feather (finger) looking' at your mistakes

You do good, they want great

No matter what you give, they want to take

 

[This entire line literally describes Anok's hate towards Star.]

 

You give your love, they throw it back

You give your heart, they go on attack

 

[Star tries to show he just wants to be a normal colt, but they don't listen. They still see him as Star, the Destroyer.]

 

When there's nothin' left for you,

Only thing that you should do, say

 

CHORUS

Today, today, live like you wanna!

Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!)

Fight like a warrior!

 

Today, today, live like you wanna!

Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!)

Live like a warrior!

[The love and passion from his friends is the thing that gives him determination. They saved him from becoming what Anok feared. They encouraged him to take every insult hurtled his way and throw it in a fire. He fought, like a warrior, and became the Healer.]

 

VERSE 2

Warrior, warrior, warrior...

 

There's some things you should let go,

They only gonna pull you down

 

Just like weight on your shoulder,

It's only gonna make you drown

 

[All of this comes up many things. His mother, rejection from his herd, all the awful things he's done that he blames himself for: killing his mother, eating Echofrost and Brackentil captured, split up Morningleaf's family, and killed Sandwing. Of course, none of these things were actually his FAULT, but he still believes it.]

 

We all swing high, we all swing low

We all got secrets pegasi (people) don't know

We all got dreams, we can't let go

We want to be brave

Don't be afraid, no!

 

[don't think I must explain here.]

 

CHORUS

Today, today, live like you wanna!

Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!)

Fight like a warrior!

 

Today, today, live like you wanna!

Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!)

Live like a warrior!

VERSE 3

Your heart is too heavy,

From things you carry a long time...

Been up, you been down...

Tired and you don't know why...

 

[what I said before about everything he thinks he caused. Honestly, I can see Grasswing telling him this entire verse. Even from the Golden Meadow.]

 

But you're never gonna go back,

You only live one life...

 

Let go, let go, let go

Let go, let go, let go...

 

CHORUS

Today, today, live like you wanna...

Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire

(Oh!)

In a fire

(Oh!)

In a fire

(OH!)

Fight like a warrior!

 

Today, today, live like you wanna!

Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!)

Live like a warrior!

 

Today, today, live like you wanna!

Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!)

Fight like a warrior!

 

Today, today, live like you wanna!

Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!) in a fire (oh!)

Live like a warrior!
