"Star Crossed" as written by and Pouyan Afkary David Wilson....
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 future's been drawn out there's no point in living
I won't give up my love so that fate can have it's 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 future's been drawn out then nobody's living
I won't give you up, love, so fate can have it's way, it's 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 out)
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 cannot love
(The stars keep this fire from burning out)
If the stars say that you cannot love me

    General Comment"If the words make their way from your mouth,
    Don?t ask my permission,
    All is forgiven."

    Someone above had a little touble with this part. How I see it is this:

    "The words" are referring to those three words with the most meaning in the world: "I LOVE YOU." If those words were to come from her mouth, if she were to return them to him, she should not hesitate, or "ask permission" to say them. He will forgive all that has happened between them to start a new and get their love back.

    General CommentWow, listening to the album for the very first time, this song really jumped out at me. Very emotional and I could really connect with it.
    And I'm not usually a fan of slower songs.

    General CommentThis song reminds people of Romeo and Juliet, because the phrase "star-crossed lovers" originated FROM Shakespeare's tragedy, Romeo and Juliet.

    It is an absolutely beautiful song, and reminds me of my love.

    Here are the real lyrics (some of these are incorrect, though almost right):

    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.
