Type: Official
Writers: Grace VanderWaal
Times Performed: 8

Notes

Someone online asked why 12-stars is called 12 stars, what inspired the name? You know what? I was going to call it “sixteen moons”, for no reason. I just liked the way it sounded. I was like “that sounds really cool”, and apparently there is like 50 others songs named that. I can’t name it that. So, I was like, OK, I am gonna name it something “stars”, I am 12 years old, so… I wish It had a deeper meaning, but it doesn’t”

Lyrics

They drifted away
but she wants to stay
even though she knows his feelings will never change
She waits and she waits, just to hear her name
and those three words that mean everything

But deep down she’s aware that
that’s something she’ll never hear
and deep down she’s aware that that’s something that’ll never reach her ears

So go ahead and kill me
as long as he is safe
and go ahead and shoot me as long as I can see his face
when I’m gone.

She sees his face, every day
and maybe one day he’ll say that I’ve always felt “that” way
But deep down she’s aware that, that’s something she would never hear
and deep down she’s aware that that’s something that’ll never reach her ears

So and go ahead and kill me, as long as he is safe
Go ahead and shoot me, as long as I can see his face
when I’m gone.
When I’m gone.
When I’m gone.
