Forbidden Fruit

Forbidden fruit is what we are
falling from some distant star
Out of place and out of time
is this sacred love of mine

Out of place and time of course
is this precious love of yours
If this love's not ours to give
how much longer can we live

In a world where we're unfit 
trying to make sense of it
In a world that's not our home
lost and always so alone

In a world where we're not free 
to express the love that we
Hold so tender in our hearts
love that's tearing us apart

How much longer can we live
if this love's not ours to give
How much longer can we take
all the pain and constant ache

Deep within our hearts so pure
how can we be so unsure
Of a love that's so sublime
of a love like yours and mine

Are we now to live instead
life among the living dead
Are we now to live and breathe
in a world that can't conceive

Of a selfless love like mine
of a love like yours divine
Love that is so safe and pure
love that makes us so secure

We are not forbidden fruit
for our love has taken root
Far beyond the distant stars
is this sacred love of ours
