Like the Montague’s and the Capulet’s
A forbidden love is what has risen.
Pointed fingers take turns
At reciting the laws that were given.
To sneak away for the night is a risk taken
Our love could never be mistaken
A battle between worlds would drive us apart
A secret love is what we hide in our heart.
When the evening comes we shall hold
Only darkness can tell whats to unfold
I look to the moon and you utter goodnight
You watch over me and tell me its alright.
Against the laws of nature that u should kiss my very lips.
It is a sin that we should make love due to our status.
It’ll be frowned upon if u mouth the words I love you.
Is it a crime to want you and u to want me too.
Confusion if we wandered to close in the day
Soon it will be love- and from love we can’t walk away.
Deaf to the conscience and blind to fact
The love that is growing you can never take back.
It could never be regrettable — our love
When you face the inevitable — my love.
Can’t they find the joy in
Our love that has been poisoned?
