StoryEdit

This is a song I wrote when I was dating a guy who wasn't exactly the popular choice. His situation was a little complicated, but I didn't care. I started this song with the line "This love is difficult, but it's real." When I wrote the ending to this song, I felt like it was the ending every girl wants to go with her love story. It's the ending that I want. You want a guy who doesn't care what anyone thinks, what anyone says. He just says, "Marry me, Juliet, I love you, and that's all I really know." It's sort of told in a character kind of thing, where it's Romeo and Juliet, and it's not me saying that I'm getting married or anything...but I think it's fun to write about it.

LyricsEdit

We were both young when I first saw you.
I close my eyes and the flashback starts-
I'm standing there, on a balcony in summer air.
 See the lights; see the party, the ball gowns.
 See you make your way through the crowd-
 And say hello, little did I know...
That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles-
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet"-
And I was crying on the staircase-
Begging you, "Please don't go"
And I said...
"Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting; all that's left to do is run.
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story, baby, just say, 'Yes'"
So I sneak out to the garden to see you.
We keep quiet, 'cause we're dead if they knew-
So close your eyes... escape this town for a little while.
Oh, Oh
Cause you were Romeo - I was a scarlet letter,
And my daddy said "Stay away from Juliet" -
But you were everything to me-
I was begging you, "Please don't go"
And I said...
"Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting; all there's left to do is run.
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess.
It's a love story, baby, just say 'Yes'"-
"Romeo, save me, they're trying to tell me how to feel.
This love is difficult, but it's real.
Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess.
It's a love story, baby, just say 'Yes.'"
Oh, Oh.
I got tired of waiting.
Wondering if you were ever coming around.
My faith in you was fading-
When I met you on the outskirts of town.
And I said...
"Romeo save me, I've been feeling so alone.
I keep waiting for you but you never come.
Is this in my head, I don't know what to think"-
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said...
"Marry me, Juliet, you'll never have to be alone.
I love you, and that's all I really know.
I talked to your dad -- go pick out a white dress
It's a love story, baby, just say... 'Yes."
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh.
'Cause we were both young when I first saw you
