WRITTEN IN THE STARS

Words & Music by: Piet Louter



When you’re old and looking back on life,
You may ask yourself, why did you strive,
For everything that came to nothing at all
And just were to fall out the other way round.
By that time you won’t care about that.
And you will laugh at all the goods and bads.
But evenmore I think, you’ll wonder why,
It took all your lifetime to find:

It’s written in the stars,
If you may go far,
If you are born to be known
As a famous hero,
Making history.
It’s written in the stars,
What kind of man you are.
At all you try to arrange,
You’ll see, you cannot change
What’s written in the stars.


But if you should have known it all before,
I think, you’d wish that you were never born.
You’d miss that feeling of being satisfied
With all you did and tried to make the best of it.
So you won’t be sorry for those wasted years.
They’ll have been more than worth your sweat and tears.
It’s like a thrilling book, you’re reading to the end.
It makes you understand and find:

It’s written in the stars,
If you may go far,
If you are born to be known
As a famous hero,
Making history.
It’s written in the stars,
What kind of man you are.
At all you try to arrange,
You’ll see, you cannot change
What’s written in the stars.
