Ever get that feeling when you're with someone great, but then it starts to die down and someone else seems within reach? It's a tough spot to be in. The choice between who you're with and who you want is seemingly impossible.

If star-crossed love is meant to be
Then why am I stuck in this insanity?
Torn between monogamy
And she who presents herself to me

How I cannot breathe when she’s around
Yet my heart still quivers at the sound
Of my lover’s song
But with passion gone
An ever gaping vacancy
Has nestled deep inside of me
I cannot hide, cannot decide,
And now it is time

Time to own up to the choice I cannot stand
To either let my passion rejoice
Or, I can take logic by the hand
My mind against desire’s voice

If star-crossed love is meant to be
Then why am I stuck in this insanity?
Torn between monogamy
And she who presents herself to me

It’s time to decide.
