Written in the Stars

I am here to tell you we can never meet again

Simple really, isn't it, a word or two and then?

A lifetime of not knowing where or how or why or when

You think of me or speak of me or wonder what befell

The someone you once loved, so long ago, so well



Never wonder what I'll feel as living shuffles by

You don't have to ask me and I need not reply

Every moment of my life from now until I die

I will think or dream of you and fail to understand

How a perfect love can be confounded out of hand



Is it written in the stars, are we paying for some crime?

Is that all that we are good for, just a stretch of mortal time?

Is this God's experiment in which we had no say?

In which we're given paradise but only for a day?



Nothing can be altered, oh, there is nothing to decide

No escape, no change of heart, nor any place to hide

You are all I'll ever want, but this I am denied

Sometimes in my darkest thoughts, I wish I'd never learned

What it is to be in love and have that love returned



Is it written in the stars, are we paying for some crime?

Is that all that we are good for, just a stretch of mortal time?

Is this God's experiment in which we had no say?

In which we're given paradise but only for a day?
