The story is all about a man thanking someone up above for bringing him the love of his life. He believed that meeting the woman he loves is not only by chance but God, whom he calls the keeper of the stars, was the reason why he met his wife.

I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin’
When he joined these two hearts
