"Starcrossed" as written by and Tim Wheeler....
Behold this night, still and clear
You look here just like an angel sleeping
I wish I could ease your fears
I would catch the diamond tears you're weeping
In your eyes I would hide
By your side I could defy
The forces tearing us apart
But reality, as it seems
Looking back, is that our dream
Was fated from the start

Girl we're star-crossed and can't escape
We're condemned and can only wait
At this time now it's far too late
To save us from our fate

I'll remain in your hold
Body, mind, heart and soul
As long as I breathe
Though consequence takes its toll
All is out of our control
That's how it will be
So close your eyes my young bride
Listen to me one last time
There's something I have to say
When your faith turns to despair
Always will my love be there
And never fade away

Girl we're star-crossed and can't escape
We're condemned and can only wait
At this time now it's far too late
To save us from our fate
You can't save us
You can't save us

Girl we're star-crossed and can't escape
We're condemned and can only wait
At this time now it's far too late
The poison's in our veins
It's true
You know that I'd die for you
You know that I'd die for you
You know that I'd die for you

Forever true
I'll see you through

    General CommentTim Wheeler said he composed this on a piano at home, it's about Romeo and Juliet ("The poison's in our veins" "forces tearing us apart", and the title, Starcrossed, as in "Starcross'd lovers".)

    General CommentYea, it's blatantly obvious that this song is about Romeo and Juliet, from Romeo's point of view, singing to Juliet.
    "it's true, you know that I'd die for you" Romeo died for Juliet, bla bla. "the poison's in our veins" Romeo commits suicide by drinking the poison, because he thinks Juliet is dead. And one of the biggest themes in the story is 'Fate'. Yea, I studied R&J at school about the same time the song came out...

    General CommentI don't agree this is the best song of the album. Vampire love for example has much more to offer. (but it's your opinion offcourse ;)) But anyways, I especialy like the "It's True, you know that I'd die for you" part. Great song, great band!
