In The Stars is a song about regret and acceptance about - in this case - a relationship that has ended. But it can mean much more than that. In life there are moments when we really want to obtain something, do something, but in the end it might not work out the way we planned it to. At first it is hard to accept that this is how things are, but when looking back at it later on, we come to the realization that some things are beyond our control, and some things are not meant to happen or to last. We can't rewrite what's written in the stars.
