"Stars" is a song by Kylie Minogue from her tenth studio album X (2007).

Background and composition

"Stars" was co-written by Kylie, along with long time collaborators Richard Stannard, Paul Harris and Julian Peake, whilst production was handled by the latter three. The song deals with the internal battle of emotion, and discusses the things beyond the realm of being. The song appears as the tenth song on X

The song runs for three minutes and forty one seconds. The song is set in the key of B flat minor, at a tempo of 118 beats per minute.

Live performances

Though "Stars" appears on X, the song was not included on the KylieX2008 tour, which supported the album. It was, however, included in the set list for the Anti Tour in 2012, which was launched as part of the K25 celebrations, and focused on B-sides, demos and rarities from Kylie's back catalogue.

Lyrics

You're asking yourself, what's real?
What to do with these feelings
That you have inside, surreal
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

When you look deep into the pockets of the universe

You never know what you find
Because stars don't shine in singular places
Open up your mind's eye and
Light up familiar faces
Because in time
You'll find life and all of its graces
So open up your mind's eye
And go tonight, begin to feel the light

How do we know the truth?
Gotta look to the root
Inside the meaning of life for you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

When you look deep into the pockets of the universe

You never know what you find
Because stars don't shine in singular places
Open up your mind's eye and
Light up familiar faces
Because in time
You'll find life and all of its races
So open up your mind's eye
And go tonight, begin to feel the light

Begin to feel
Begin to feel
Stars don't shine
Stars don't shine
Stars don't shine
Stars don't shine
Stars don't shine

You never know what you find
Because stars don't shine in singular places
Open up your mind's eye and
Light up familiar faces
Because in time
You'll find life and all of its races
So open up your mind's eye
And go tonight, begin to feel the light
Go tonight, go tonight, go tonight
Go tonight, go tonight, go tonight
Yeah, familiar faces
Go tonight, go tonight, go tonight
