Rewrite The Stars Lyrics

[Verse 1: Phillip Carlyle]
You know I want you
It's not a secret I try to hide
I know you want me
So don't keep saying our hands are tied
You claim it's not in the cards
And fate is pulling you miles away
And out of reach from me

    Rewrite the stars is written for when Phillip Carlylle's parents make offensive remarks about Anne being a black trapeze artist. Anne is saying that even though her and Phillip both love each other they can't be together because it was very risky to be with someone of another race back in the 19th century. She doesn't want to hurt Phillip in any way. Risking who you love the most to see them safe and happy is best type of love you can get. Anne overall is a selfless character.

    My interpretation is that it means to change your fate or destiny, and create it into something you want it to be in love. I have never watched the movie, so this may not be correct, but this is the way I interpreted the song on its own.

    I believe 'rewrite the stars' means to follow your dreams to get to where you want to be in life. Like in these lovers cases they want to fall in love and be happy together :)

    I want to write this song with the showman producers and see if I’m going to be in and so I asked John Paul if he can put me in the movie with my friend Ben then he can become great actors, and we wrote this song and to be in a relationship with other people and also we’ve been talking through this situation and make things better. And to my mom I would like her to be a great, but I’m so proud writing songs on the movies. It’s so fun and I can perform it at the American music awards and then we will start of our summer tour of 2020 and we’re spending nights at the movie locations. Then we can hang out, writing music, and shopping, and even the mall. They have great malls at New York.

    Even though both singers are still deeply in love, the woman doesn’t believe they are meant to be together anymore (for reasons that non of them can change). Even though it’s very painful process, the woman can already see the ”mountains” that keeps them apart, however, he’s still not willing to accept this fate and is ready to “rewrite the stars” = do whatever it takes to change this fate.
    This song is not easy to understand unless you’ve been through the same situation.

    When I wrote this song I’m very patient to write about the relationship when we choose to be but we’re making new high school relationship and so me and Ben are writing this song together. Because me and Ben are producing and writing it with Benj Pasek he’s such a good writer, but me and Ben are so lucky to have benj to write things better and he looks like my dad, but when he wrote it he played my piano and to rehearse the song including that dreams.

    The story involves an interracial relationship in 19th century America and the struggles they face from the prejudice they encounter from society at the time

    rewrite the stars
    Another meaning to rewrite faith or defying your destiny by creating your own.
    Which is against GOD OF THE MOST HIGH TO THINK ON THAT .

    It is basically them asking the question “Can we fall in love?”
