"Love Story (Taylor Swift Cover)" as written by and Taylor Swift....
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 you say hello
Little did I know

That you were Juliet
You were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Romeo,"
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you, "Please don't go,"
And I said

Juliet, take me
Somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting
All there's left to do is run
You'll be the princess
I'll be the prince
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 know
So close your eyes
Escape this town for a little while

'Cause you were Juliet
I was a scarlet letter
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Romeo,"
But you were everything to me
I was begging you, "Please don't go,"
And I said
[2x]
And said Juliet, take me
Somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting
All there's left to do is run
You'll be the princess
And I'll be the prince
It's a love story
Baby, just say yes

And I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you is fading, [yeah]
When I met you on the outskirts of town
And I said

Juliet, take 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
I 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
You'll pick out a white dress
It's a love story
Baby, just say yes

We were both young when I first saw you
