Elton John – Written In The Stars lyrics

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 have no say
In which we're given paradise
But only for a day

Nothing can be altered, there is nothing to decide
No escape, no change of heart, no anyplace 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

    I think of you when I listen to this song. I will never see you again but in my heart, you will remain. I might feel stupid for feeling the way I feel but that is how I feel. Ours might have been a forbidden love but I will cherish it in my hearts of heart. I only wish you could have said goodbye, tell me you can't meet me again. As it is, you are trapped inside my mind because you never said goodbye.
