How to burn a star

"How could I have burned paradise?" [Evanescence - Call me when you're sober]

My username comes from this lyric that I'd half forgotten. I had thought the lyric was "How could I have burned the stars?" I'd been looking for a new username at the time and I figured Burnthestars sounded alright. This was when I was fifteen, give me a break.

Since then, though, I've changed. A lot. The name now not only is a half forgotten lyric, but the idea that you should always strive to do the best you can, even if you know your goal is hard to achieve. Like trying to burn a star. How can you burn a big ball of flaming gas in the sky, after all?

Simple. You just have to be hotter than the star you wanna burn.

The End
