Just one kiss on my lips
Was all it took to seal the future
Just one look from your eyes
Was like a certain kind of torture

Once upon a time
There was a boy
And there was a girl

Just one touch from your hands
Was all it took to make me falter

Forbidden love
Are we supposed to be together
Forbidden love
Forbidden love
Forbidden love
We seal the destiny forever
Forbidden love
Forbidden love

Just one smile on your face
Was all it took to change my fortune
Just one word from your mouth
Was all I needed to be certain

Once upon a time
There was a boy
There was a girl
Hearts that intertwine
They lived in a different kind of world

Forbidden love
Are we supposed to be together
Forbidden love
Forbidden love
Forbidden love
We seal the destiny forever
Forbidden love
Forbidden love

Just one kiss
Just one touch
Just one look

Forbidden love
Are we supposed to be together
Forbidden love
Forbidden love
Forbidden love
We seal the destiny forever
Forbidden love
Forbidden love

Forbidden love
Are we supposed to be together
Forbidden love
Forbidden love
Forbidden love
We seal the destiny forever
Forbidden love
Forbidden love

Just one kiss
Just one touch
Just one look
Just one love

    General CommentYep. Being tempted by someone who is unavailable, or even someone that other people wouldnt approve of.

    General CommentI think it's about meeting someone and instantly knowing that they are the "one" for you and possibly at the same time people are against it so that is why it is forbidden. Good song.

    General CommentGreat song & beat. It's about two people who are in love with eachother...or could fall in love with eachother. They are kept from expressing this love they secretly share because of an obsticle, most likely, they are each commited to another person...hence 'Forbidden love, we sealed our destiny forever....' It is a perfect song for describing one of the most helpless feelings one can have....having someone standing right next to you yet missing them, because you can never fully have them. It is a forbidden love, a secret.

    General CommentThe music in this song is awesome.

    The lyric line written above "are we supposed to be together?" also sounds like and is commonly quoted elsewhere as "always suppose to be together." I think it is primarily intended to be "Always suppose to be together" but is also geniusly intended to ask the question to the person who is referenced in the song as "You(r)" what it also sounds like "Are we suppose to be together"

    The other line above that might be misquoted is ofter quoted as "It's been our destiny forever"

    I think it is significant to the meaning of the song that the first line omits any reference to "you" or "your" whereas the other lines, such as "Just one touch from your hands was all it took to make me faulter" does reference "you(r)."

    So here's my conclusions: "Just one kiss on my lips
    Was all it took to seal the future " is a reference to a marriage kiss of the singer. That I'm fairly certain.

    "Just one look from your eyes Was like a certain kind of torture," "Just one touch from your hands
    Was all it took to make me falter," Just one word from your mouth Was all I needed to be certain" are in reference to a connection made between soulmates (one who is the singer and one not the one she married). Madonna seems to be all into that soulmate stuff/belief, and the other verses of the song make me think that is what it's about.

    The forbidden love theme probably relates to marriage/monogomy thing, and from the other songs such as "Get Together" maybe even "Hung Up" and even "Jump" make me think it is more likely a strong value comming from the non-singer soulmate.







    which makes sence since another line in the song is unlike quoted above sounds like and is ofter quoted as "It's been our destiny forever"

    General CommentI think that its about a gay relationship. the beginning part about "there was a boy - there was a girl" is off if thats the case...

    but to me, the part that seals it is when she sings "are we supposed to be together?"

    Its like gay people who arent sure if this is normal. Thats just my take on it...
