‘Lost Stars’ – Adam Levine/Keira Knightley from ‘Begin Again’

“Who are we? Just a speck of dusk within the galaxy.”

“Maybe we’ll find a brand new ending.”

These are the lyrics that stand out the most within this great song by Adam Levine that can be heard in the amazing movie, “Begin Again.”

Sung by Keira Knightly in one version and Adam Levine in another, this is one hit that I cannot get out of my head and out of repeat mode.

Both versions are exquisite. Adam’s version has a more rock vibe and I love the way one of the lines is sung twice whereas Keira’s version is softer, delicate and more fragile. Her’s is honest and noble, whereas Adam’s has a bit more of an edge and the melody is catchy.

“Please don’t see, I’m just a girl caught up in dreams and fantasies.”

“Please see me, reaching out for someone I can’t see.”

In her version, the beginning phrases catch my attention. What is she feeling, what does she want to tell me? I listen to her more and want to know if she is broken or scared. Maybe we’re all lost stars, trying to light up the dark.

Perfectly written and perfectly complicated.

Let me know what version you prefer and why?
