“We Can Reach the Stars” by Blake Shelton
Blake Shelton wrote “We Can Reach the Stars” in honor of his relationship with his spouse, who by the way is long-standing pop star Gwen Stefani. And the vocalist sounds a lot like someone who is truly smitten by the apple of his eye. For instance, he expresses a fantasy that the two of them would have met at a much earlier juncture in history, so that they could have spent more of their lives together.
Indeed he perceives their connection as one which was predestined by the Most High. So despite them hooking up relatively late in the game, still he very much feels as if their union is a blessing.
And whereas he is obviously edified by this romance, at the same time Blake isn’t sugarcoating things. In other words, Blake does, metaphorically, reveal that sometimes less-than-ideal issue arise. But taking a mature approach to the matter, he perceives such hardships, if you will, as contributors to the strengthening of their relationship.
As far as the title goes, most simply explained it is Blake’s way of putting forth, once again, that he truly loves Gwen.
And whereas some listeners may deem this piece as being a bit over-the-top, even for a love song, let it be known that “We Can Reach the Stars” actually served as Blake Shelton’s wedding vows to his wife. And once again concerning the title/chorus, this piece does an effective job of not only relaying his love for her but the fact that he looks forward to the two of them sharing a fulfilling future together.
