Cassiopeia
Sara Bareilles Lyrics


Come in close now, it's time to tell a story
Long ago and so many years before we
Ever were, ever dreamed we even could be
There was her and her very first heartbeat

All alone in the corner of the night sky
Spiral bones of a supernova starlight
Fell in love with another burning bright she
Dreamed of a way to ignite she said,
Tonight
Come on, come on collide
Break me to pieces, I
I think you're just like heaven why

Come on, come on collide
Let's see what a fire feels like
I bet it's just like heaven

Just like heaven
Just like heaven

Such a shame
nowhere near, even the near mist light years away
From the hope of being sun-kissed anchored home
in her interstellar sea but, poor lonely Cassiopeia
So she sighs and she burns with desperation
Learns to cry over love of constellations
Then the spark from a star shooting too close
They both smiled what a day to explode, she said

Tonight
Come on, come on collide
Break me to pieces, I
I think you're just like heaven why

Come on, come on collide
Let's see what a fire feels like
I bet it's just like heaven

Just like heaven
Just like heaven


Long ago in a sky built before us
A supernova grew up to be stardust

Jessica Dubois

she said in the commentary album how this song is about the constellation Cassiopeia and how she personified it in this song by making the supernova fall in love with another star that was beyond light years away. I think that is absolutely amazing how she did that and made it into such a powerful song, this is why I love Sara, she puts so much meaning into her music.

Rebekah Cox

Sara has a way of writing love songs. Love Song was a prime example of that, but as she's grown as an artist and a woman, she's continued to write amazing works and this one is just as, if not better (in my opinion) than, Love Song

Cassiopeia Gillespie

Michael I. Haber

Sara parodied this very song turning it into a 40 second jingle at the top of her Broadway hit WAITRESS as the preshow announcement which tells the audience to turn off their cell phones

Ellen Huang

Dang, of all things I didn't expect the line "what a day to explode" to make me cry. Sara's songs are truly extraordinary.

Gryf

Yes, she has amazing songs. Added to the fact that her voice and control is top notch
