Song – Seeing Stars

This song started off in two ways.

First, was the line “my head is spinning and I am seeing stars” followed by the beginnings of the verse chord progression being a D major 7th to a B minor. It wasn’t until I accidentally played an A minor while I was workshopping the verse that the song really kicked into gear.

A great example of a happy accident changing the course of a songs development.

In this song, the feeling I’m trying to portray is one of loving something so much that it physically hurts. I also drew on some experiences of a very good friend of mine who was becoming a Dad for the first time at the time of writing Seeing Stars as the foundation for the song.

Special thanks goes out to Alexandra Frost on backing vocals, Darren Zaza on guitar and Stig Lindell on keys.

Hold the phones and stop the press
This will be better than the rest
Coz my head is spinning
And I am seeing stars

You gave me life from a single breath
No truer words have now been said
Coz my head is spinning
And I am seeing stars

I feel so dizzy, I need to rest
With this feeling I got in my chest
Oh, I see the world now
Through the eyes of love
My head is spinning
And I am seeing stars

I’ll build a world in which you can live
And give you all the space to move within
But I’m hardly breathing
As my eyes well up with tears

I want to hold you in my arms
And drown in your presence, your light and your love
Coz my head is spinning
And I am seeing stars

I feel so dizzy, I need to rest
With this feeling I got in my chest
Oh, I see the world now
Through the eyes of love
My head is spinning
And I am seeing stars

My head is spinning
And I am seeing stars
My head is spinning
And I am seeing stars


Seeing Stars is the one song that I get the most comments on when I play it live so I felt it was fitting to have the song as the title track of my CD.

Peace,

Corey 🙂
