I hope you don't mind if I do now. And there's a little story. :)

[spoiler]It was a beautiful night and Ran was gazing out the window of the detective agency. Suddenly something passed before the full moon.

- A shooting star!

She wished if Shinichi returned very soon.

Conan entered the room with a sly smile on his face. He held a copy of a letter.

- It was not a shooting star.

Ran answered with disappointment in her voice.

- But my wish... it has to work anyway! By the way Dad, look what a clear sky! Which is your favourite star?

Kogoro turned in his swivel chair towards the window.

- Hmm, I can't see it from here like this.

She frowned.

- Be serious![/spoiler]
What was going on? What did they mean?

*reads, tilts head, reads again, looks at suspiciously, then shrugs*
[spoiler]I have absolutely no idea, so now for some questions and BSing. First off... *glances again at the full moon and copied letter, knowing full well she has a bias, but oh well, obsession is obsession*
First question: Why the heck is Conan calling Kogoro Dad? V:
Second: Is Conan meaning 'in the sky' star or superstar? :V[/spoiler]

Ran said that, not Conan. ;D I edited that part to be more obvious.
I'm not answering more questions, tell me the whole story and I tell you if it's right or wrong. :P

[spoiler]Ah, ok, that makes more sense. *shrugs* Dunno, I'm getting Kid for the first part and Yoko for the second. Unless Kogoro means the sun, of course. Complete guessing, but don't ask a writer for a 'whole' story, or I'll end up making something up that has nothing to do with the riddle if I'm wrong. ::)[/spoiler]

Exactly! ;D

[spoiler]It was Kaito Kid gliding and Conan had his heist notice. And Okino Yoko is Kogoro's favourite star![/spoiler]
It's your turn!

We follow you wherever you go.
The more you pay attention to us, the wiser you'll grow.
Just try not to get lost, and some, to yourself, keep.
The only way to silence us is with your eternal sleep.

(Let's see how a random one works out this time. Hopefully better. :V )

Let me try

[spoiler]"We follow you wherever you go" and "the only way to silence us is your eternal sleep", they imply the omnipresence of whatever the thing is around your life, and it will be gone if you died/you cannot experience it after you died. "The more attention you pay to us, the wiser you'll grow.", this line suggests that the thing may bring you wisdom if you focus on it. Wisdom is probablythe ability to think and act based on insight gained from knowledge,common sense,understanding and experience(just paraphrasing Wikipedia), you can pay attention to all of the above to be wiser and lose them for yourself once you are six feet under, however only your life experience will "follow you wherever you go". You may become irrational at the heat of the moment, foregoing your knowledge and you common sense but you will not forego your experience as your experience shapes your subconscious mind and hence constantly influence the decision you make. For example normal people should not remember clearly what happened when they were infants but if they were neglected by their parents when they were crying for help as infants, they may grow up to be the kind of people who would not ask for help because their experience as a baby tell them that no one will help them even if they cry, they do not remember the events but deep inside their mind the feeling that no one will help them lingers, and hence the "follow you wherever you go" even if you loose the memory. "Just try to not get lost, and some to yourself, keep." can also be interpreted in a way that supports my theory that "we" is the life experience of a human being. "try not to get lost" has multiple meanings, on one hand you should not loose memory of what you experienced because it defines who you are and at the same time it also means you should not let your (bad/unpleasant) experience jade you and make you become overly negative etc like the baby example. "and some to yourself, keep", there are some experiences that you may want to keep to yourself because its private or special that other people cannot totally understand and you must remember the feeling. Your experience will be silenced once you died, although you can share your stories of your experience while you are still alive but for instance hearing the horrifying tales of a concentration camp is totally different from living the tales of the concentration camp, other people cannot experience the same thing as you did through a third-person perspective so your experience which you experienced first hand will be unique to you and it will disappear once you died. In conclusion "we" is the life experience of a human being.[/spoiler]

So how is my explanation? Make sense?

Hmm... I think the answer is

[spoiler]Thoughts. We are always thinking and our brains are working constantly even in our sleep.
If we start consciously to think and pay attention on logic, we get smarter.
One can be 'lost in thoughts' and we all have many thoughts we just want to keep secret and for ourselves only.
And the only way to stop all thinking is to die(eternal sleep)[/spoiler]

Lame quiz is lame but I hope you still like this one.

Has only one color but lots of sizes.
Feet stuck on the ground but still flies around.
Right beside on sunny day, not seen on rain.
Is not on your way nor feels any pain.

I wouldn't exactly say it only has one color, but...

[spoiler]A shadow?[/spoiler]

Probably
[spoiler]a shadow, but i am under the impression that it is still possible to see your shadow in a rainy day[/spoiler]

Both are correct. Shadow is the answer
