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
But...

    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.

    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.

    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 do this song with Zac but I want to do acrobats and I took gymnastics with Geoffrey and I can do like gymnastics stuff and then I can still do the rings but my friend Zac wrote it he’s in the musical with Corbin and Ashley, and then I wanted to be real circus at New York. And between that me and Benj are doing writing music writing my own song on it. Me and my boyfriend are doing acrobats because I’m doing gymnastics at Virginia, and so we invited the cast of high school musical and do lots of fun stuff.

    I think that the relationship would be desire to be my boyfriend and it describe him as my friend and it has great commentary. But I wrote with my friend Zac Efron he’s in high school musical he did greatest showman, and he wrote rewrite the stars for me, and Nini to do the greatest showman together, then me and Joshua are doing acrobats like Zendaya and Zac, because I like to do gymnastics stuff at christiansburg. And so I wrote it and my friend Zendaya had some couple of clothes for me to try on.

    I believe rewrite the stars is an example of forbidden love. They both know they are in love with each other. While Phillip thinks its okay to be with Anne he does not see the consequences and boundaries that Anne sees. Since she is a colored woman in the 19th century racism is a big issue, and since Phillip is a rich white man there are huge "mountains" that they would have to climb. Overall Anne was trying to be a selfless person and protect Phillip and herself from the danger it would be for them to be together.

    The song sees Efron's character Phillip, serenading Zendaya's character Anne and trying to convince her that they're meant to be together, despite their differences.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    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?”
