About Starry Skies

We know that Saara loves to sing about love, and Starry Skies is no exception. Lyrically we hear Saara waiting for that first kiss from that special someone, where she sings ‘We’re too scared to kiss’, and what a person will do just to get that kiss from that special someone:

I don’t wanna leave here till the sunrise

Underneath a billion starry skies

And I still remember you and me together

On the night that we got started underneath those Starry skies

Chorus of Starry Skies

As ‘Starry Skies’ was released, Saara commented on how it’s one of the best songs she’s written.

I feel like it’s one of the best songs I’ve ever written. So personal. About your first love. When it’s too cold to stay outside but you’re still there waiting for your first kiss.

We hear a more acoustic, and more stripped back Saara on Starry Skies. Combine this with Saara’s sweet vocals, Starry Skies makes perfect listening for the winter nights upcoming ahead.
