Star-Crossed Lovers

Like a bandaid on a bullet hole

Or a bucket in the rain

I tried to catch you, but I let you fall

I tried to be the pill to ease the pain


So many problems, but we couldn’t solve em

I just wanted to save the day

Should’ve known better than to call ya

Now tears drown me when I hear your name

I just wanted to be the hand that stopped the bleeding

Wanted to be the heart that kept you beating

But I tried too hard and it all fell apart


Should’ve known you were too broken from the start

I guess those star-crossed lovers hold a place in my heart

And walking out the door was my biggest mistake

I really wish you would’ve begged me to stay

But if comes down to it at the end of the day

Star-crossed lovers never make it anyway
