Cassiopeia Lyrics

Play "Cassiopeia"
on Amazon Music

Come in close, now it's time to tell a story
Long ago, and so many years before we
Ever were, ever dreamed we even could be
There was her, and her very first heartbeat

All alone, in a corner of the night sky
Spiral bones, of a supernova...

    Sara wrote this song imagining Cassiopeia as a human, and falling in love with another star. She says, "I started to think about how that might feel to personify, you know? The idea of being a star and so far away from everything around you," she told. What if a star falls in love? The song is this idea that you give something up to come together. When stars collide they explode, so it's that sort of idea that you give something up to come together. But it's worth it in the end."
