Brightest Morning Star

Album: Britney Jean (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Britney wrote this song with Sia. The Australian singer-songwriter also co-penned "Perfume" and "Passenger" for Britney Jean.
  • The song is addressed to Jesus, who described himself in Revelation 22:16 as THE bright Morning Star. Christ is also called the Morning Star in Revelation 2 :28 and 2 Peter 1:19. Britney sings:

    "You're my light when it gets dark
    You will always in my heart
    You're my brightest morning star"

    A morning star appears just before dawn, when the night is at its darkest. The idea of the 'brightest morning star' is one that outshines all the others. Jesus is the most holy and powerful "light" in all the universe and He promises in the Bible that when everything seems at its bleakest point, His light will shine in the darkness providing protection and guidance.

  • Wake Up from Planet EarthThis song is NOT about Jesus. It was cowritten by SIA, who is has admitted to worship an entity she refused to name by its real name. SIA is a satanist and all her songs AND videos reflect this. Remember satan also likes to be called "morning star". Britney is going through very dark times and she is surrounded by the wrong people.
