See you in the stars is inspired by the feeling of being apart from a loved one, and the desire to show love and care for that person despite a literal or figurative distance. The text depicts a dream of meeting in the stars, while the music creates an open, space-like atmosphere for the words to float through. 

TEXT:

Close your eyes, feel the air
It holds you softly.

Moonlight falls on your face
Rest your weary mind.

When I close my eyes, I am in the sky,
I will meet you there.
I will see you soaring above the clouds.

Look up now,
see the stars shining brightly.

And the moon beckons you,
I will see you soon.

When I close my eyes, I am in the sky,
I will meet you there.
I will see you soaring above the clouds.
I will see you soon.
