Star-Cross'd Love

With the wings of an eagle, you soared into my heart

With a tender embrace, you gave my love a brand new start

You took me to the top of the mountain, where I could almost kiss the sky

Truly – there was no mountain high enough that we couldn't climb, if we did try

Under a cloudless sky, we made love under the stars

We were looked on by angels, who did well to watch from afar

I have an angel who loves me

A winged love no one else can see

I have an angel who guides me

Star-cross'd love is what we will be

You told me to scorn you and hate you, nothing would ever come to fruition

I sent a skyward prayer, a mortal's sole way to seek a petition

You made me believe in the power above, only it could take you away

But no power on Earth, could ever keep you or could make you stay

I have an angel who loves me

A winged love no one else can see

I have an angel who guides me

Star-cross'd love is what we will be

You left me on this rock, I couldn't handle the pain

It hurt so much, poisons tempted from which I couldn't abstain

I took solace in a temple, screaming and crying your name

Emotions so savage and raw, no forgiveness ever could tame

You left me confused and destroyed, stuck in a trance

The consequences of abandonment, of a far-flung romance

I have an angel who loves me

A winged love no one else can see

I have an angel who guides me

Star-cross'd love is what we will be
