Sometimes love can't save the day, and sometimes others have to stay, but no longer live.
Performing Shakespeare on our stage
Never shall I turn this page
We, as stars, crossing paths
As love appears, and merely laughs

Too much time for life ahead
To have those notions in our heads
And life is but a tragic dream
Of lovers never as they seem

So as their romance battles life
Two hearts deprived of 'man and wife'
Their kindred beings stop and stare
And revel in the lives they spare

Take the poison, for it's the cure
To kill the danger, so unpure
And then it's just our love will grow
And not the portent they don't know

But as her being fades away
I realize that I can't stay
For as the critics doth beget
And from the cancers we had met
I couldn't save my Juliet.
