Written In The Stars | Tinie Tempah

What is the meaning and main idea of Tinie Tempah's Written In The Stars? What is the message the song tries to convey? What kind of mood which the singer shows in the song? Continue reading this article to find the answers to those questions.

Well, in short, the song tells us about Tinie Tempah's version of the popular saying "Man proposes, God disposes." However, the saying here is not understood that humans does not have any ability to change their lives. Indeed, in the song, it is declared that humans have to work hard to change their lives. That why, God will really change their lives.

Song Lyric Narrated
The song is opened with the phrase taken as the title of the song "O Written in the stars. A million miles away. A Message to the main." So, here it has been made clear what is meant by the title. Our question, if there is, about 'what is written in the stars?' has now been answered. It is 'A message'. The lyric then continues with "Seasons come and go. But I will never change. And I'm on my way." Related to the lyric before this part, namely about the message, it seems that this part means that since the singer has known the fact about the message, he holds the message strongly and hence with the time flowing, seasons come and go, he will never change and will always believe in the message.

The next part, the rap one sung by Tinie Tempah seems to tell his fame, struggle, dissapointment. The fame part is proved with the lyric 'they play my song on so many different dials.' However, even though they like his song, when they meet him and know the fact that he is black, they seem to ignore and underestimate him. They only like the hits but they don't pay any respect to the one who composes the hits. "I only make hits like I work with a racket and hat,' he says. "Look at my jacket and hat, so damn berserk, so down to earth" he continues. This part proves his disappointment. His struggle is depicted in the lyric "I used to be the kid that no one cared about." Yes, even with such background, he could be a widely acknowledged song writer. And he got that because he 'keep screaming til they hear you out."

In the next verse, he tells about his black life which is in part encouraged by his disappointment toward the world which cannot accept him as he is but take the hits he makes. He "gave up believing and praying." He "even done the legal stuff and was leaded astray." However, this dark life does not give him any satisfaction. He even feels "so hungry that it keeps him awake." Therefore, he realizes that it is not the life he actually wants and should live. Trying to leave this dark life, he dreams and try to chase the dream. And with hard work, he now has been a famous rapper of all. So, "you just have to keep screaming until they hear you out."

Well, that's my interpretation of Tinie Tempah's Written In The Stars song. Your comment is highly appreciated.
