The xx - Stars

I can give it all on the first date
I don't have to exist outside this place
And dear know that I can change

But if stars, shouldn't shine
By the very first time
Then dear it's fine, so fine by me
Cause we can give it time
So much time
With me

I can draw the line on the first date
I'll let you cross it
Let you take every line I've got
When the time gets late

But if stars, shouldn't shine
By the very first time
Then dear it's fine, so fine by me
Cause we can give it time
So much time
With me

If you want me
Let me know
Where do you wanna go
No need for talking
I already know
If you want me
Why go

I can give it all on the first date
I don't have to exist outside this place
And dear know that I can change

But if stars, shouldn't shine
By the very first time
Then dear it's fine, so fine by me
Cause we can give it time
So much time
With me

“Stars” is about a new relationship that is more dependent on love and romantic chemistry than sexual chemistry. While sex is important to the narrator and their lover, it’s not important if they don’t want to do it on the first date, because they expect the relationship to last long enough for it to happen eventually. The track is a stark contrast to “Basic Space”, which details two lovers who can’t get enough of each other sexually. It’s included on The xx’s self-titled debut.
