Written in the Stars
Elton John & LeAnn Rimes Lyrics


I am here to tell you we can never meet again
Simple really, isn't it, a word or two and then?
A lifetime of not knowing where or how or why or when
You think of me or speak of me or wonder what befell
The someone you once loved, so long ago, so well

Never wonder what I'll feel as living shuffles by
You don't have to ask me and I need not reply
Every moment of my life from now until I die
I will think or dream of you and fail to understand
How a perfect love can be confounded out of hand

Is it written in the stars, are we paying for some crime?
Is that all that we are good for, just a stretch of mortal time?
Is this God's experiment in which we had no say?
In which we're given paradise but only for a day?

Nothing can be altered, oh, there is nothing to decide
No escape, no change of heart, nor any place to hide
You are all I'll ever want, but this I am denied
Sometimes in my darkest thoughts, I wish I'd never learned
What it is to be in love and have that love returned

Is it written in the stars, are we paying for some crime?
Is that all that we are good for, just a stretch of mortal time?
Is this God's experiment in which we had no say?
In which we're given paradise but only for a day?

(Is it written in the stars, are we paying for some crime?)
(Is that all that we are good for, just a stretch of mortal time?)
Is this God's experiment in which we have no say?
In which we're given paradise but only for a day?

This is one of those Elton Jonn's songs that is very much underappreciated yet it is a very beaitiful duet with very talented LeeAnn Rimes.

Isabelle Maltais

One of the most underrated ballads of Sir Elton...

Teresa Dilts

This song has more meaning than anyone realizes, I've loved this song when I first heard it. And with Elton and Leann singing together it can really hit home.
