Star crossed lovers
They say we're not meant to be
'Cause the stars in the sky, and the fashion that they are aligned.
I say if the futures been drawn out there's no point in living.
I wont give up my love so that fate can have its way.

If the stars say that you couldn’t love me,
Are you telling me that you would listen?
If the words make their way from your mouth,
Don’t ask my permission,
All is forgiven.

Star crossed lovers, we do what we want to.
Some learn the hard way,
We all learn through consequence.
I say if the futures been drawn out then nobody’s living.
I won't give you up love, so fate can have its way.
Its way.

If the stars say that you couldn’t love me,
Are you telling me that you would listen?
If the words make their way from your mouth,
Don’t ask my permission,
All is forgiven.

Is it over?
(The stars keep this fire from burning on)
Is it over?
(Are you saying that you’d really listen?)
Is it over?
(The stars keep this fire)
Is it over?
(The stars keep this fire)

If the stars say that you couldn’t love me,
Are you telling me that you would listen?
If the words make their way from your mouth,
Don’t ask my permission,
All is forgiven.

If the stars say that you can not love.
(The stars keep this fire from burning on)
If the stars say that you can not love me.

    This isn't the best meaning; but it's about star-crossed lovers, which are "doomed lovers" Like their love was doomed from the start

    "star crossed lovers
    They say we're not meant to be
    'cause the stars in the sky, and the fashion that they are aligned.
    I say if the futures been drawn out there's no point in living.
    I wont give up my love so that fate can have its way. "

    This verse depicts a forbidden love that he thinks makes no sense at all, hence the line about the stars. People often think that one's fortune can be told based on the stars, which is often regarded as pointless, and there you have what he thinks of how he's not allowed to love her. In continuation to his rant on prediction of the future, he says that there's no point in living if your entire life is predetermined. His love for her is far too important to let go of just because people think that they aren't meant to be.

    "if the stars say that you couldn’t love me,
    Are you telling me that you would listen?
    If the words make their way from your mouth,
    Don’t ask my permission,
    All is forgiven. "

    This can be a ballad, really. She's persuaded by the people around them who judge them based on their idea of fate, and she thinks that they may be right. She's starting to believe them, and he's angry because of all the things he did for her, and she's willing to just throw it all away.

    "star crossed lovers, we do what we want to.
    Some learn the hard way,
    We all learn through consequence.
    I say if the futures been drawn out then nobody’s living.
    I won't give you up love, so fate can have its way.
    Its way. "

    For couples like these, freedom is not an issue. He says that there are always consequences to love, naturally, and some people play it safe while others take the risks. He continues, saying how there's no point in living life if life is predetermined.

    "is it over?
    (the stars keep this fire from burning on)"

    He's scared, angry and lost, and now all he wants is for this to be over.

    Okay that was fun. But what i find interesting about this song and its lyrics is that he's both confused, reluctant and aggressive at the same time. Some parts are about him being angry about her just throwing all they had away, while other lines contradict each other (as in the chorus and the prechoruses).

    But it's a gorgeous song all the same.
