Song Meaning of In The Stars by Benson Boone, and what it is about


Benson claims to have written the song in response to his great-grandmother's passing. In Sweden, Norway, and the Netherlands, it made it to the top 10.


"In the Stars" is a track that embodies Boone's signature style, showcasing his ability to craft melodies that linger in the mind long after the music fades. The song originated from a moment of contemplation under the night sky, where Boone found himself mesmerized by the vastness of the universe and the interconnectedness of all things. This sense of awe and wonder served as the catalyst for the creation of "In the Stars," a song that seeks to capture the ineffable beauty of existence.


Song lyrics of In The Stars by Benson Boone


Sunday mornings were your favorite

I used to meet you down on Woods Creek Road

You did your hair up like you were famous

Even though it's only church where we were going

Now Sunday mornings, I just sleep in

It's like I've buried my faith with you

I'm screaming at a God, I don't know if I believe in

'Cause I don't know what else I can do

 

I'm still holding on to everything that's dead and gone

I don't wanna say goodbye 'cause this one means forever

Now you're in the stars and six-feet's never felt so far

Here I am alone between the heavens and the embers

Oh, it hurts so hard for a million different reasons

You took the best of my heart and left the rest in pieces

 

Digging through your old birthday letters

A crumpled twenty still in the box

I don't think that I could ever find a way to spend it

Even if it's the last twenty that I've got

 

Oh, I'm still holding on to everything that's dead and gone

I don't wanna say goodbye 'cause this one means forever

Now you're in the stars and six-feet's never felt so far

Here I am alone between the heavens and the embers

Oh, it hurts so hard for a million different reasons

You took the best of my heart and left the rest in pieces

 

I'm still holding (On), holding (On), holding on

I'm still holding (On), holding (On), holding on

I'm still holding (On), holding (On), I'm still holding on

I'm still... ooh, still holding on

 

I'm still holding on to everything that's dead and gone

I don't wanna say goodbye 'cause this one means forever

Now you're in the stars and six-feet's never felt so far

Here I am alone between the heavens and the embers

Oh, it hurts so hard for a million different reasons

You took the best of my heart and left the rest in pieces
